Can i fix this like a normal tire with a plug of some sort? I dont want the local mom'n'pops store tellin me some "blow-off" story.

I looked at the tire, jacked it up and put some soapy water under it and spun it, didnt notice any bubbles, but i also wasnt too critical.

Or, maybe i should buy some of that tire slime?! Think that'd work?

Im open for [email protected]???? Any tips?

Thanks,
Tony

Any idea where the leak is? Could simply be a valve stem. If it is a puncture make sure it's not plugged but rather popped off the rim and patched properly from the inside and revulcanized. It should be fine if done correctly.

Oh ok, i was under the impression that "plugging" was the only way to fix a tire. The re-patch idea sounds like it would work good for me.

I dont think its the valve stem, i wiggled it around fairly good and heard nothing.

Thanks for the info,
Tony

Well, soaked the tire down good with some windex today. Found the little pinhole right smack dab in the middle of the tread! Its like SOOO tiny! I have no clue what could have popped it. Crazy, hope they can boot/patch it. :(
