Default Tire issue

Hello,

One of the rear tires on my Traxxas Maximum Destruction keeps getting a flat spot and I have to work it out constantly. Any thoughts on why this may be happening? Is this normal because none of the other 3 tires have this issue.

Thanks for your support.

Sound like the foam has failed. Did it get wet from washing or otherwise?

Yes the tires did get wet. Does this mean I need a new one?

yes it would most likely be a bad foam. there is another thing too when storing you car with the tire on i always leave my truck in the air with the suspensin of the ground with the tiers on so they dont get flat spot also.

Thanks a lot. I hope Traxxas will send me one for free since I have only had it a few weeks.
