Tire sounds and feels flat but it's not
#1
My rear tire sounds flat when I'm riding and feels flat when I'm going around a corner but it is not flat. The tread is still good. What could cause this?

Hey there, nice to see your posts again. Making a guess would be to check the tire pressure?
Good maintenance to your Bike, can make it like the wheels are, true and smooth!

Could be your spokes are too loose. That can give you a mushy feel, especially when cornering.

True and True. I'd do it in that order as well, first tire pressure then spoke tension.
