    Hello
    I have had my winter wheels on now for about a week and one tire is slowly losing air. The winter tires were installed on new wheels. Anybody else experienced this?

    Lots of people have experienced this to be sure. You have a leak. Either from the tire or the valve stem. You need to get it fixed at a tire shop.

    If they're brand new tires and you just had them mounted, it's likely the valve stem. Take it back to the place where you had the tires mounted and have them change it out.

    I have the same issue on one of my original tires, but I'm just waiting until I put my winters on so I can just bring that wheel/tire to the tire shop (I don't know if they have experience with Tesla's on the lifts here).

    Not necessarily, it could be a damaged rim. Discount tire damaged one of mine on my old car and it would loose about 3lbs a week.

    It was a bent valve stem.
