just run a nice thick bead and smooth it out with a putty knife or body filler wipe and let it dry,,,,question, did you or the previous owner put fix-a-flat in the tire?Originally posted by boogiedown27@Dec 5 2003, 08:10 PM
So is there a certain way to apply the silicone to the wheel? I know that I will have to let it set 24 hrs?
this seems to be a pretty big club we got here,,,,i also have owned two different sets of leaky daytonsOriginally posted by AWSOM69@Dec 5 2003, 07:08 AM
Did Discount tire mark the areas where the rims were leaking. If not and if the tires are still on the rim, air the wheel up and mark around which spokes are leaking. Then have the tires taken off. Seal the area on the inside of the wheel where the wheel was leaking with silicone sealant. Let dry for at least 24 hours. Remount tires and away you go. I've had two sets of real Daytons that leaked. Welcome to the club..
I will do the same thing. apply it on thick, and smooth it out w/ a putty knife?Originally posted by SQUEAKYG@Dec 5 2003, 10:04 PM
TRY USING WINDOW URETHANE .... AVAILABLE AT ANY AUTO BODY SUPPLY STORE ... IT TAKES ABOUT 24 HOURS TO DRY BUT USUALLY WORKS THE BEST ..... TRY AND SCUFF UP THE SILICONE AROUND WHERE THE SPOKE IS LEAKING FROM SO THE URETHANE STICKS BETTER ...
