Never had this happen before

out of the clear blue these tires start to loose thier seal at the rim. I am running EMPI wheels and some crappy General tires (they came with the car) But still shouldn't just loose the seal and go flat. I run 28 to 30 PSI and check every couple of weeks.

Had a similar problem with Rivieras. Bought car which had sat for years. Tires looked new. Two kept going flat. Took to tire shop 3 times. Found no holes. They put some sealer stuff on beads. Still lost air. Guy at shop said that sometimes this happened when car was not driven. I started driving the car more and slow leaks eventually stopped.

I got new tires and kept losing the seal in one of them as it would go flat after a few days. I took them in and when they removed the tire we found that the PO used that tire inflator/sealer at some time. The gunk left behind was interfering with the new tire bead/seal. The tire shop used a wire wheel to clean it up and then remounted the tire. No problems after that.
