Just out of curiosity, do you have original wheels on your car, or are they after market "mag" style? The reason I ask is that my "Mag" style wheels are porous and leak down slowly. It was interesting to see the air bubbles come out of the wheels between the webs while I was cleaning them. My cure for this is to coat the wheels with POR-15 black for the insides, where the tire creates the air chamber and the inside of the wheel, and use Glisten PC by the POR-15 folks after I polish the outside surface of the wheels. On two of the wheels I've already done, the leaks have stopped.

i think they're the 15 hole ones

yeah i went out and checked and they have 15 holes with the opel hub cap thing on it..... drivers side takes up to 4 days to go flat.. passenger sides takes about a month to a month in a half to go flat...

I had my 72 Stock wheels stripped down to bare metal and they found some cracks which they welded closed. This might be a cause of leakage.

I'd try new valve stems and reseating the tires before doing anything drastic.
