Getting tire to stay on the bead?

Hi,
I have a 36"bunton walk behind and the front tire keeps leaking around the bead and over night it comes off the bead once the tire pressure is gone. I cleaned everything very well and cannot get the tire to quit leaking around the bead. Is there something I can put on the bead to get a better seal so it dont leak. I dont see any bends or dings that would cause this either. Thanks for any help given.

Hey,

Take axle grease and an acid brush and brush the grease around the bead, and reseat it (with no valve in). The grease stops the leak around the bead. If this doesn't help put a tube in it.

You can try slime too if all else fails, but the tube is probably the more reliable way to go.. SOmething must be outta wack like the rim is twisted a bit or the tire is defective ?? one never knows with these things.. I have a slow leak in my truck tire that no one can find but me in the morning when its flat...LOL...

My vote is to put a tube in it, I strectched a couple of extra seasons out of a set of tires like that, they had become old and were leaking alot because they were starting to dry rot. I purchased some tires this spring and wow its almost like buying tires for a car $$$$$$$ you have shop around for good deals

on the rim, then put the tire back on shouldn't cost more that 5-8$.
