    Not the answer you are looking for, but check valve stem first. Also if you can change a tire you can fix a leak.

    WalMart. If it does not work the first time, the second time is free. Probably rim has dirt causing the leak.

    It may have a something in it causing it to leak.

    If you know what you are doing and dont care that your nice rims may get damaged by fixing it yourself.

    Should cost you less than $20 anywhere you go. Just take it in next time you get your oil changed.

    Just remember to mention it the next time you go in for new tires. The guy taking the old tire off the rim will appreciate the heads up.

    If you damage your rims using a plug kit, you probably can't change a tire.

    Using a plug isnt fixing a tire.

    Since that stuff is corrosive to your rims and tire pressure sensor, i'd just go in and have someone look at the tire; especially since it wouldn't cost much more than buying a can of that would.

    Does it need to be high quality?

    Hopefully it is just a leaky tire. Last time I had a "leaky tire" it was actually a cracked rim.

    Go to a place that specializes in tires only. THey will probably fix it for free. Discount Tire in Minneapolis did. What you could do is go to the counter and ask for a quote on 2 or 4 tires even though you are not interested in buying and then ask them to see if they can fix your leak.
