Have you checked the tube to see where the leek is coming from? That might give you some idea as to where the problem is on the wheel. Or it could be you're getting pinch flats? In which case keep your tyres hard and put plenty of powdered weightlifters chalk in the tyre.

Ubrakes with a gyro take a while to get used to if you're used to V brakes, part of the problem is that you probably don't have chrome rims, chrome makes u brakes work tons better.
Get some diatech hombre brake pads, they're green and stop much better than stock pads.
Keep your pads and rims clean and if all else fails take your bike to someone who knows how to maintain BMX bikes. IME LBS's know diddly about BMX.
