    anyone else had this problem?
    got a case 85xt with them on have had 3 go flat in 300hours from new ,wonder if not pumped hard enough on delivery and slewing with heavy loads broke the bead seal a bit.
    pumped harder now but makes it a bit jumpy turning sometimes with empty grab.

    I also have had this problem. Actually I have had the tire dunked in water and am able to see air leaking from the rubber around the rim. Somehow the air enters the rubber and is forced out the bead. The tire shop says that they have seen many Galaxy tires with the problem. Generally I like the tires but I also have been having tire issues. I am considering foam filling them on at least one machine. How do you like your 85XT?
