Went to move my 112 to do some cleaning and P.M.  The left front tire was flat. It's been perfect for over two years and now it is leaking around the beads. It never ends does it?  Rick

That is strange! I don't know why it would start leaking like that?

attachicon.gifuntitled flat.png

I think I helped unload that so it could be jacked up, it was before AAA and cell phones, raining before we were done of course :bigrofl:

Tires and windshields are my nemesis, if i get a new one it will be chipped within 2 weeks, I had one on the way home from the shop get busted big by a state snow plow :wallbanging: . I was waiting for traffic and he came around the corner thru the intersection and just whoosh all over the front of my truck in the Pilot driveway. I had witnesses and photos of  the sign post thru my window, and my insurance still ended up paying. (agent said they would go after the the state for the cost, but it would take forever and of course I needed the truck) The State Patrol is a real "bear" about w/s around here...course commercial plated trucks are a "gold-mine" for w/s chips since the state is broke and not fixing holes on the highways like they used to. The worst I had was a Camaro in front of me one nice fall day hit a turkey, yep it went up in the air and like in slow motion right thru my new to me (2 yr old) forward cab INT 2600 w/s. $500 deductible on a $2150 w/s and the turkey was so mashed I didn't even get a drum stick for dinner...I think I might have swore loudly as that sucker came thru, I know I cursed it after plenty.( what a mess)

 

$800 of new rear tires on the truck, one piece of re-bar in a chuck-hole on the bridge right thru the sidewall on the outer dual the second day :( and then the over 4 hour wait for a service truck...

Makes a guy want to go work for somebody else...

Are you using a tube or is the wheel tubeless? If the wheel is tubeless, give higher pressure on the tyre... and wait. If it's not tubeless, well then you must do what you have to do.

Around here it is the freeze and thaw combined with grass "juice" which seems to start a little corrosion and then when it sits Bingo ! leak city. Good luck whatever you have to do the smaller ones can be buggers to get on and off especially with tubes.

You might try bumping the air pressure up to the max and tapping on the sidewall with a hammer. Just may get it to reseal.

I went to NAPA and bought a can of bead sealer. Black, goopy stuff! Does the trick, though!

That stuff IS the answer!  Dad uses it at his shop all the time on aluminum wheels.

I'll probably go that route. I really don''t want to break down that tire and rim. I keep seeing that nice paint and don't want to scratch it. Seems like you start in one corner and it doesn't stop til you go all the way around.    Rick

Being careful, you can probably break the bead fairly easily. Like I said, this stuff is black, gooey, and stringy.
