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 .
