Take them apart, and clean the bead surfaces with a scotch brite pad on your die grinder, then wipe them down with acetone and fill any bad areas with some tire glue. Clean the hell out of the rims too.

Jerod, I would loosen all your bolts on each wheel, and then get a torque wrench and torque each bolt right. I know it takes for freaking ever to do, but it should help. Don't put any slime in your tires, that stuff sucks. If they keep leaking, get a spray bottle of soapy water, and find out where its leaking and slowly tighten at that area. Swampers are bad because they have thick bead surfaces, I had to do that with the 39.5" Boggs I used to have:D If that doesnt work, then check all your sidewalls ect..I know those tires have been to Disney one too many times:flipoff2: .

I don't know mine NEVER have leaked:flipoff2: (Frankies Locks) Frankie said to silicone the weld on the inside of the wheel and not worry about it and they honestly have never leaked. Are they 32 bolt locks? It seams there is more broblems with the wheels with less bolts.

I've had 2 sets of beadlocks and I always followed the torquing instructions. I've never had a beadlock that would hold air doing that. Maybe I'm an idiot and don't know how to correctly use a torque wrench. So after spending a few hours doing the proper torque sequence and still getting leakage I just go around in a circle and snuck up each bolt until the air stops hissing. Haven't had a leak from this method yet
