Would it hurt if I put some Slime in the tire? Any other fixes? It will go from 30psi to around 6psi overnight. the other tire hold air fine. :confused:

take a spray bottle of soap (windex works fine) spray the tire and bead area. look for bubbles and find out where the air is leaking. if its in the bead then read the attached post i started. After using the method described i have not had to air them up again.

Same here, Palmolive coating on the inside before mounting and 12 PSI for weeks. WORKS.

The dish soap keeps the air from leaking out the sidewalls which is a slow leak situation. most of the time the bead is the big problem IMHO
I always use the dish soap also. i think next time i will coat the inside with the slime. It would have to work better just for a little extra insurance

I found my leak at the track last night. It is a small pin hole in the tire. Any fixes without tubes???
