If you have high miles on the car then engine wear could explain the oil consumption. Tires? I guess you run over a lot of nails.

Call the exorcist!!! ok, seriously now, the tires are losing air because the bead around the wheel wasn't cleaned properly when the new tires were mounted- that is not the car's fault- it is also not the car's fault that it is old- and born a Chevy- but let's not judge and blame anything or anybody- just realize it is time to get a better car-
