This Pit Bull Growler with removed rim protectors didn't begin to leak until just below 1 psi on a basic aluminum wheel, once the inner sidewall was perpendicular to the wheel, which is almost exactly what happened when using an aluminum Allied bead-lock wheel. With the Allied wheel and the rim guard intact, the tire let air out at a significantly higher 3.5 psi.
