The wheels are beautiful but what a hassle with the leak
Best of luck with the fix, you got a lot of good advice

Oh man I definitely would be pissed if that was the case! The good news is, at least you didnt mount them thinking they were good and come out with the rims sitting on the floor!

Musta been a slow leak.Mine went from 38 pounds to flat in 15 minutes with no weight on them. lol


$14, and tires are off. First coat of RTV is on all 4 wheels, gonna do the second coat tomorrow afternoon. I'm taking the overkill route, as I dont wanna have to deal with this **** again.

Sweet, good to hear. How long did you wait between coats? Just skin or set up for a while?

24 hours. Probably overkill but I wasn't in a rush.

Time between coats will depend on temperature. I usually let them sit over night

Yeah, that was my plan, but i'm not sure how well the second coat will commingle with the fully cured first coat.

Stuffs all at room temperature in my room, so the curing info on the package should be damn close.

Didn't get to the wheels as soon as I wanted, had to do door pins on the Jimmy. It was ripping the door panel off when I opened the door the bushings were so effed.

2 coats done. I'm thinking about doing 3. lol I'm afraid its gonna leak again. Im super paranoid now.

Haha welcome to 3 piece wheels. Throw a 3rd coat on and you'll be golden. You're honestly probably fine now with 2, but 3 coats will cool your nerves.

I'm gonna let it skin, then get a closer look at it to see if I like the finish.

I managed to use 12oz of black RTV so far, lol.

Hitting it now with a heat gun before it dries will get rid of any bubbles.
