    39.5" TSL wont hold air...

    Hey just looking for some advice on my options what to do with this tire I have. Its a 39.5x16x15.5 TSL Swamper, I have had it to the tire shop checked for holes, leaks, cracks no signs of air loss, the rims beat up a bit but no leaks. But still everytime after I have it re sealed and inflated the dam thing loses air till the bead gives out after about 2-3weeks. If I had my own compressor wouldnt be a prob keeping it topped up with air every few days. Hoping a cheap fix for now would be a tube inside the tire, anyone know of a good make and where to find one? Thanks

    Where's it leaking from? Soap the whole thing up and look for bubbles? Leaky valve stem? If it's going flat in 2-3 weeks you should be able to figure out where it's leaking from no?

    the roundy round boys use tractor tubes due to a heavier rubber compound . With a beat up rim i would guess your not getting a good seal. Try that tractor place just west of welland on hwy 3.

    There just regular rims. And yea I have soaped the whole thing several times with no luck finding the source of air loss. Ok ill go give that place a look see what they can do for me, its still a good tire and if I can tube it to get me by for now that would be awesome. Thanks for the info Mudsir.

    I think it's forks road. Starts down by the old john deere plant and goes to dunnville. Where it turns into hwy3.
