|Hotrod 80||Now that the tires have drill holes in them pull the screws one at a time and take the tips off . The tips of the screws are just long enough to cut through ( Moroso). Mark the leakers and as stated add some glue or gasket material . Make sure the slick is got air pressure in it so the bead is tight against the rim . Slicks without tubes tend to leakdown over time anyway . If tubes are chosen they need to be Good ones . Natural rubber and made for racing . They are heavier material to keep from rupturing and wading up around the stem and throwing the tire off balance at speed .|

you might be able to drizzle some bead sealer or repair glue (cold vulcanizing fluid) into the screw holes
worth a try, if you dont want the tubes

Thanks S 10 Racer. Of all the screws I installed, inside and out, these are the only screws that penitrated. I'll pull the screws and measure.

Screw mounted slicks repair?
I have a set of Hooser 28" slicks that have developed slow air leaks at 2 of the mounting screws. Does anyone know of a repair that would work or would I have to install a tube to stop the leaks?
Any input would be appreciated.
