I just recently had to take a wheel back to my tire guy. The sidecar tire had developed a leak and even ride-on wouldn;t seal it. Did the soapy water test and I had bubbling around the rim. (Sidecar wheel is off an 85 VN750)
Took it back and they made it right..
Cause of the leak?
They hadn't cleaned and checked the rim throughly. After taking the tire off, cleaning the rim with a brass brush and CHECKING it by running a towel along the rim (if it catches there's a bur or bit of residue) the tire is fine now.
