Rear Tire WATER spray from stem?

Hi everyone,

I have a 2005 4Runner with BF Goodrich 265 All Season Tires.

After a brutally cold snowstorm a couple weeks ago in Northeast, I saw my left rear tire looked low on air (sagging a bit). It was at around 14PSI which I filled up to 34.

I checked this week again and it is down to 30. So Im guessing theres a slow leak somewhere. Weirdly though, when taking the pressure reading, a little bit of water kept lightly spraying out of only that wheel.

How the heck does water get in there? How do I fix it? I got tires at Toyota so should I just have them check it out?

Thank you

If you air up at gas station often their air system is contaminated with water.
Air systems need a dryer for this reason, the compressed air gets hot, then cools and any moisture in the air condenses and goes into your tire.

I'd invest in air compressor then maintain and keep it in dry garage. I'd never use gas station or repair shop compressors (I've on-board air for emergencies).
