Continental RaceSport Tires

Hey all,

I have recently set up a x-king racesport both in the ghetto tubeless (using stans fluid) and the actual tubeless method (stans tape on the rim with a sealable valve core and stans fluid).

Both ways mounted up easily and now they both hold pressure (35 psi) for the entire week between rides. On the trail I do notice that the tires loose about 5-10 psi during a 2 hour ride. They are also still springing pinhole leaks on the sidewalls and even on the tread lines after these rides.

My question is this: Will these pinholes eventually stop springing up as I ride the tire more and force the sealant into the pinholes? Or does stans not dry into these pinholes and seal them permanently?

Anything that can be done to stop the leaks? Something better than stans?
