1.Examine the Tire for the Source of the Leak. First, check to see if you find a screw, nail or other kinds of debris sticking out of the tire. If not, finding the source of the leak can be a little bit difficult - but we have a trick that will help make this easy.

2.Use Leak Detection Liquid. Fill a squirt bottle with a vegetable base soap and water solution or tire manufacturer approved leak detector liquid.

3.Inflate and Spray the Tire. Inflate the tire and then spray the entire tire with your bottle full of cleaner.

4.Identify the Puncture. As the cleaner runs down the tread of the tire you should notice a small volcano-like eruption of bubbles right where your puncture lies.
