2,,, holler with your results and I'll recommend solution

3,,,the simpler no brainer Rx is to t OSS in a tube,,,,,till we sort it out
Holler n y

Leak was at the spoke next to the air valve. Took the tire off and the sealant wrap and tape had also come off and was balled up in the tire. The "caulking" on that spoke was in fact cracked and that's why it was leaking.

Put a tube in until end of next month when I can send you the rim for repair.
