    Aired it up and used it for chores, parked and came out to it sitting on rim again the next morning..WTF
    Aired up, sprayed soap solution around bead, pulled wheel and sprayed backside, put in pool to find slow leak( a chore in itself with an ATV balloon tire)..nothing...Now holding air. Can only think the bead wasn't completely set and my soap solution and over-inflating got it set fully. Lifes mysteries.

    It held the last two days...but after posting this I am surely jinxing myself.

    Have you irritated H? I mean more than the normal not insignificant amount of irritation. Has she disappeared for a few minutes each evening for no apparent reason? Check for footprints around the mule.

    Her response was asking what did I do to tire or rim

    Her sideline coaching is usually very..."helpful"
