I ma checking tire pressure religiously and keep F35 &R 33. Today after coming back from Hove Depot I noticed one of the tires appeared to be a “little flat”. Just enough to make me check the pressure again. I could not believe it – 14.5 psi! And it was barely noticeable. Added some air and a few hours later pressure holds. The tire does not seem to have any damage. Anybody with similar experience? It really puzzles me.

A nail in the tire can result in a *very slow* leak. A few months ago I had a nail in one the tires on my Maxima and it leaked about 0.5psi per day. Took me a while to determine it was even leaking!

And yeah, the tire generally doesn't start to look flat until its really low, around 15psi (which is where you were at).

Murano weight distribution is approximately 60%F and 40%R. I found Murano handles better if I run F35psi and R33psi.

But it is me. Others may dissagree....;)

I tend to run 37F/35R, but thats just my preference (the SE's suspension is firm enough that I don't notice any difference in ride, but steering is definitely more responsive).
