Raceline Monster BL leaking thru nutsert

I have mounted an older used Toyo Open Country MT on a brand new RAceline. It is leaking about 5 psi a day. So today I got the soapy spray bottle and long story short the air seems to be leaking thru multiple nutserts. Should I take it all apart and start again meaning loosen ring and start over with the torquing ? Any ideas?

When you say "nutserts" are you talking about the inserts that you can just punch out and install new ones? If so, why not just punch out the bad ones?

I'm assuming it's leaking out the backside of the wheel where the bolts come through, right?

Try taking it apart and remounting it. There is no possible way that it is leaking through the nutsert that is just where the air is coming out at.

Yes thru the jbackside. However when's I just retorque that specific bolt it appears that the issue comes up some other area. I did a star pattern but I was not as critical in my pattern on this one as I was the first 4. I will try a complete new setup tomorrow and let y'all know.

Did you just get these wheels? If so what is the head stamp on the bolts? Is it "TUZ" or "c"?

Steel or Aluminum rings? I had steel rings that leaked with BFG Krawlers. Got Aluminum rings and leak went away
