    Should i use them?

    I know the answer is a big NO probably, but i somehow wanna convince myself that i could use them and nothing will happen. So i have some Mickey Thompson's on my ws6 wheels they are 26x10.5x17 i think? Well i had been using them with no problem but now after sitting for like 4 months one of them slowly slowly slowly went flat. So i took it to get repaired but the whole is on the wall of the tire and cant be repaired so my question is should i just air it back up and use it?

    slowly leaking air? if so 1/10 ET streets do this, i had a set that leaked ever so slowly, only way to tell the air was leaking was to pour water/soap on them, but the holes were more like pores after that i went hoosiers and never looked back
