Default How normal is to loose tire air in 07TCH?

I changed all 4 of my tires to brand new ones in 2012. I only drive about 5K miles max. My mileage today is around 47K. My tires are fine but I keep losing air almost every 3 weeks. Has been happening for almost a year now. I have it checked and repaired at least 3 times at MIDAS, fire stone and at a local auto repair shop recently. They called it RIM, Valve etc problems. When I go back after I see the warning light, they say it is due to cold weather. What the heck should I do now? Is it due to bad tire or something about the car engine ? I canít afford new car so I will try to fix it once and for all. Thanks for any suggestions . My tires looks normal and no mechanic shops have told me I need new tires.

When I had the tires replaced on my 07 recently, they also installed TPMS leak repair kits which cleared up any slow leak issues (these can be installed without unmounting the tires). If I were you I'd get a spray bottle of soapy water and spray it on both the valves and the area where the tire meets the wheel. See if you can spot any leaks that way.

finally after more then 14 months of air leak issues , I finally drove to Costco to order 4 new Michelin tires that were out of stock on Costco website. I had to fill up air before getting there . No amount of fixes or trips to auto mechanic shops are able to fix the issue. So I decided to just get new tires . In last 7 days, I went to fill up air 3 times as it is brutally cold here . Now I will know the endless air leak is due to tire or struts or something else. Costco told me I will know if they will get the Michelin premier AS tires in about a week.
