With any new tire repair, it is a good idea to check the tire pressure a few times for the first couple of days. It may lose a couple pounds while the string seats in but it should be stabilized after a day. If not, redo it IMHO.

I have NO issues with plugging my tires with the sticky strings and riding them to the end of their useful life.
