Just bought a '96 hijet a couple weeks ago and was excited to get a set of 24x8x12 Kenda Bear Claw tires to swap out for the stock skinny things the truck came with. Ended up at NTB to swap them out because my mechanics tire machine wouldn't work on wheels this small. The guy at NTB took the front pair off first and after mounting the tires on the stock rims he found both of them were leaking around the rim when submerged in water. While I wasn't there he inflated them all the way up to 25 psi to try and get them to seal to no avail. Anybody have any suggestions on what to do or why these won't seal. I purchased these tires after searching this site to find others who have been able to use these tires on stock wheels with no lift. Any feedback is much appreciated.
