I generally use soapy water I spray around the tire and usually find the problem.  But if that does not produce results then in the tube it goes.

Does anyone put their wheels in a tub of water to look for leaks anymore?

Would have to be a realllly big tub.

It was a 30+ gallon bin but it bit the dust over the winter. It would put about 1/3 of the tire under water at a time. I'm thinking of buying one of the rubber horse troughes at AGWAY to replace it. We will see what comes up. Good Luck, Rick

I had a truck tire once that had a nail in it. If I parked the truck with the nail down it would slow leak. If the nail was up, it wouldn't. It liked to drive me crazy!

Soapy water works for me. Should show you the problem, no matter where it is.
If it were mine, and this was a farm trucking would take the tire off the rim, check for any sharp spots inside by hand, put in a tube and be done with it.

I picked one of these up at a yard sale a few years ago.
