Either the beads did not set properly or your rim is bent.

Mein Auto: ...
had the same problem...took the tire off and the rim/tire was not sealing because of little dirt/rust on the rim itself....cleaned it off with steel brush/grinding wheel...be sure to put some oil on the rim when you put tire back...
haven't had a problem since
or just take it to any tire shop if you don't have tools and pay em like 5 bux to take off the tire/clean the rim for you

More than likely it's the seal between the tire and the rim known as the bead. Go to your tire-shop and have them reseal the wheel. As well have them check the bead on the others!

Tell them to use silicone as a precaution.
