I think it must be you, PQ. I've never had these kinds of issues.

Could it be the shop?

Is there some sort of trick to mounting the tires?

Seems to me it's pretty damn simple. It seals it's self right?

I've watched it a bazillion times........

Those short stiff sidewalls can be a pain... do they have modern equipment?

...whatever happened to shoving it in a barrel full of water and looking for bubbles???

I push them off into the swiming pool.

But, they were doing that, it just will hold in the beggining and then later seems to start leaking. But this time they said they were very diligent.

Maybe it's those Mobile roads? If it's not leaking at first, it seems it would have to be a sealed area (beads or tpms) leaking

Ya. The last one I did a couple weeks ago before I went to the shop last week was leaking about 6 different places on the inside bead.

Same with the rear one this week.

They said it was the bead on the left rear, and the sensor on the right rear.

We have a new solution for you - run flat tires. No Air. Better yet, swipe a set of plastic ones from a Big Wheel...

Man, you have had the worst luck with those 22's. :(

Once they get ironed out, I think I'll be fine.

DAMN I wish I'd have just went with the same wheels but 20s.

I really think it's the 22" aspect of the wheels that is the culprit.

Not sealing ont he bead, sensors leaking, vibrated so bad, etc............. heck, they still vibrate, just much less. Acceptable.

I will probably end up in something else. Just a shame since these look sooooo daaaaamn gooooood.

You need to drive my car at the fest and tell me what you think.

LMAO, it's par for the course though. guys are posting vids of dynos, cams, and big numbers, and I'm just wanting air in my tires. LMAO

On a good note, this morning I didn't have to add any air. Of course, my TPMS light is on because of the missing sensor. I'm getting used to that light being on.

Yea...my light is on right now, but that's because I wanted to try out the Forgestar 18s I bought for the track. No reason to install sensors on those. They don't look as good as my Savinis, but they do look pretty mean with those big fat Mickey Thompsons. Of course they also hook much better on the street.

An itty bitty piece of black tape will cover that light for life..
