Just wondering if anyone else is having problms with their wheels.
Three of mine have been leaking air slowly.Its such a pain in the ass.
I tried to have one fixed,it was leaking from the bead.It stopped for a few days then started again.
Im so sick of adding air every three days.

Both on my 07's 22's hold air great, make sure the valve is tight in the sensor, if it is the bead area there are compounds that can be put on the bead to fix that and make a better seal.

What ever you do dont use fix-a-flat, my tire and wheel guy told me that it will kill your TPMS sensors. You can try filling them N2(nitrogen) if there are leaks N2 will leak a whole lot slower because N2 does not expand due to the fact that it is an inert gas. good luck by the way I run 24" wheels have not had this problem

Yes the Fix-a-Flat will kill the sensors, the bead sealant I am talking about is applied by the tire installer. :)
