ATV New Tires - Air leaks out

Postby CP » Fri Aug 26, 2011 6:18 pm

Hey all!

I just got a new set of four Dunlop tires for my 650 Rincon Honda. Three of the four went on good and hold air fine. However, the 4th (rear) tire leaks all of the air out. I am wondering if anyone knows what might be going on.

Some variables that I can get out of the way...
- The tire is a 25X10X12 - the proper size for that rim and that atv
- The tire leaks from two spots... there are two little holes in the rim just inside the bead that look like they were drilled. The holes are 180 degrees apart, and on both sets of rims. Not certain why Honda put them there, as that is the place the tire leaks from.
- the tires appears to be seated correctly and does not lead anywhere else from the rim. There are no holes in the tires and no gap in the tire valve.

Anyone know what might be going on? Does anyone have a Honda ATV that can tell me why the two little holes are in the rim? How do I fix this problem? I would rather not buy a tube, but will if need be.
