had 2 new tires installed on my 2007 Suzuki SX2 and now the right rear tire keeps loosing air. Need to put air every couple of days. Any ideas what causes this?

Thank you

THe place where you had the tires installed should have ensured the rim was properly cleaned off of all debris left from the original tires. Do you have steel rims or aluminium mags ?
SOmetimes, deflating the tire completely then inflate it again up to a bit over operational pressure will seat it properly....then deflate to normal pressure....but this is a lucky guess...
ANd it happens.....that even a brand new tire will collect a nail.....

It's caused by air leaking out - either around the rim, through a hole in the tire, past the valve stem, or through the valve core - assuming you purchased the tires from the same place that mounted them, take it back and have them deal with it.
