its not leaking air ummm on the back part of the rim theres a flat surface then go into the wheel and on that flat surface there is a lil crack i hope i can get this thing fixed because theres no way i can buy a new rim :crying: but my bro says if it gets bigger ill start loosin air

take it to a place that knows what they are doing first for safety reasons and second cause if they use too much to fill it the balance or the rim is gonna be screwed up

contact the manufacturer where you bought it. they usually have a rim repair deal you can get with em.

thats exactly how mine was but on the front of the wheel, it never got any bigger and did not leak..
