if you again, know where on the wheel its leaking, I would make it, and pull tire and inspect the area really well, and tap out if need be to get it right!

maybe you have too ruff a finish from the grinder?
but even so, if the wheel was out of round from a bend, grinder or not, unless you made it back to true round, it can still be the issue here, of a bend in the wheel, all the more so if you say it leaked before!

are the wheels steel or aluminum ??

mrbb I don't think you need a new wheel, LOL
But wheel damage can cause leaks, be it a bent spot, damaged from trails(rocks and like), or could be a BAD tire, that has tire damage to it where it needs to seal
WHO mounted the tire, YOU or a shop?
to rule out the tire you can, mark tire where its leaking now, then deflate it, and spin it on wheel and re inflate and see if it still leaks in same spot on tire,
OR wheel
if same spot on tire, then its the tire that has damage

if the wheel, then the wheel has damage, if steel wheels, they can be bent back pretty easy and be good to go again

if aluminum?? well you might be able to smooth out the area to get a better seal, but if damaged enough and or cracks, its time for a new wheel!

Jeepwm69 You clean/ smooth up the bead on the wheel before you put the tire on?

Tire bead leak

I have a brand new tire with a bead leak. I used bead sealer and it’s still leaks. Any suggestions?
