Wait....................... They will.......
I can't believe the run of bad luck you've had with your wheels/tires.

Too late for that. I can't allow myself to spend more on wheels.

Wheels seem to be fine. Now it's the tires/sensors/er...... I guess.

I'll see in the morning wether they are holding.

Sell them (if you can). Bismarck can get you a set of wheels in a couple of days I'm sure. =)

There's no way you can just return them now?
If this were a car, you would definately qualify for lemon law. I think this is an issue between manufacturer and vendor now.

His car is going to be on display for Savini at the afterparty though. At least the wheels won't get jacked. Flinstone Mobile!

In all fairness, the shop wasn't naming the wheels as the culprit. They weren't NOT saying that, but ALL of the wheels have held air at one time or another so surely they are good. Only thing they said is that 3 peice wheels can be a pain in the ass.

I wonder how often it happens with these big ass wheels?

Once before, they said they had to 'Fix' them.

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
