Default Original KO tires

All, I've got a leak in one of my KOs and haven't been able to find the location. It loses about 10lbs of pressure a week. Though I would try posting here to see if anyone has any suggestions or may have a 275/70R18 laying around. They are fairly new with lots of tread, probably around 18k miles on them, so I am trying to avoid the "new tire" purchase. Worst case, I already have a KO2 as my trail spare, and I could just buy three new KO2s and use my original KOs as the trail spare.

Have you taken it to a shop and had it remounted? Often those hard to find leaks are on the bead and they just need to be cleaned/remounted. Had to do the same on our Tundra twice this year.

Haven't had the time. I'm going to try and take it in this weekend. Hopefully that's it.

Once had a vehicle from NH, even with new tires it would always lose pressure rather rapidly. As MDH33 said, mounting could be an issue, sometimes the rim of the wheel may have corrosion that prevents a proper seal. If you haven't replaced the valve stems, sometimes that rubber seal can weaken. If putting water on the tire doesn't yield any visual indications of a leak, try those suggestions.
