Hey all. Inhave a 2013 GSA Camhead that was treated with new tyres few weeks ago. Noticed pressures dropping by around 0.5bars every week. No punctures but soapy water bubbles at the Valve core (big hole in rim). I gently tried to tighten up about 1/4 turn to no avail, bubbles got stronger.i did hit a full lock, but didn't want to torque through it. Ordered a valve stem repair kit, but just wondering, whether I could use some sealant around the bar of the hole from outside rather than taking the off etc.
TPMS works fine.
Advice appreciated.

Don't try to jury rig it. Take it back to the people who did the tire change and have them take the tire off and see why it's leaking. They may have damaged your TPMS. It's easy to do with the bead breaker if your not paying attention during the tire removal. It needs to be repaired right.
