Slow leaking tyre

Hey guys,

I have a slow leaking tyre, it leaks about 5 - 10 PSI per day. It is driving me nuts pumping it up everyday. The tyre is like new, heaps of tread, so I don't want to replace it. Does anyone know a fix for this?

Thanks,

Matt

Just take it to a tyre place, they'll fix it while you wait for $20 or so.

What Martin said, and they'll usually find the leak even if the object that punchured the tyre isn't there, as a tub of water will always locate a leak.
