Hairline crack

I had problems with a tire once and thought it was someone screwing around me I went out and baught a tire air compressor from 12 Volt Rechargeable Emergency Jumpstart System w/Air Compressor & Power Inverter RPAT715 - $119.09 : and only a daily basis it seemed like I was still adding air turns out it was a small crack on the inside wall of the tire near the rim.

I had one that would only go flat when one particular section of the tire was facing down. 50 psi and soapy water finally found it.

Don't use "fix-a-flat". It's corrosive and will trash wheels, especially alloy wheels, if not cleaned out soon, and thoroughly. I see it all the time. It's a pain in the ass to clean out, and it smells bad, and can make it hard to patch the tire. In fact, I charge a customer $10-$15 extra if my tire guy has to deal with a tire with fix a flat in it.
