Re: [DML] Re: Weeping tire

Yep Bead sealer is the way to go.

I used to use it back in the days when I was a Tire Tech for  
Goodyear. We used it on problematic rims that we kept cleaning and  
they would come back for leaks. One application and they never leaked  

Bead sealer is like a black liquid rubber type stuff, real sticky.

Good luck!
