    Tyre question

    I have a slow leak out of the bead on on 56 f100 rim.Is there anything to use as a sealer on the bead to stop the leak? I'd rather not use a tube.I did clean up the tyre bead and rim to no avail.

    Had this a while back on a golf, tyre depot have a paint on sealer that they used and also moved the tyre round the rim a bit just to help seating, was fine then.

    Try to get hold of a tube of Weldseal, smear some round the bead before fitting the trye, and that will stop the leak.
