I had one that was even slower. I really couldn't tell if it was
leaking for a long time. As they were new tires, I took it to the tire
store. They found a bead leak. He said it was common with aluminum
wheels. They clean the wheel edge and put on some bead sealer. Charged
be $5 and asked if that was too much!
For a "fine-wire" puncture I would put a patch on the inside and
possibly shoot some glue in th hole with a syinge . Not likely with a
standard office staple though.. Just don't want water getting into the
Putting in a plug requires opening up a larger hole, which can
compromise the carcass cords. In the case of a small staple, I would
patch and not plug, if possible. For a larger nail. I would plug, or
use an internal plug-patch combination (one piece "umberella" patch)
