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 .

matts37chev 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

1971BB427 If they penetrated the bead they're too long. Nothing to do now but install shorter screws and tubes.

Thanks

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.

Thanks again,
Brian

Maybe the screws are too long. The tire bead is the thickest and strongest area of the tire. You could use slime but a tube would probably be the best fix but either way, check the screw lengths.
