Left front tire flat...help!

Hey guys..last weekend I get the tpms go off for the front left tire so I take it to the station and add a bit of air. Later that day I see that my tiress flat.

I'm running on the 21" 128's.

Could I have added too much air? If so what's the right tire pressure to have? Or I have a bent wheel and its seeping through?

Let me know what you guys think?

Could I have added too much air? Don't know. How much air did you put into it?

If so what's the right tire pressure to have? do you have an owners manual? Mine states anywhere between 33-36 psi depending on number of passengers and luugage

Or I have a bent wheel and its seeping through? Could be that or many other things. Did you take the tire in for service?

Did you recently replace the tires? I guess your supposed to re calibrate the system when you replace tires. If not probably a bent rim.
