Help! 08 KFX brand new tires and alba racing beadlocks

I’m driving my self crazy over the past two weeks purchased a new set of tires and all 4 beadlock rims from alba racing I cannot get any of the to hold air for more the. 24hours and it’s driving me crazy. I’m pretty handy and can follow instructions on how to install properly torque and seat the tire bead but still can seam to figure out why they are leaking and advice or wisdom would be much appreciated! Thanks

It's sounds like the TIRE beads aren't seating...To seat the bead...soapy water around the rim/bead...inflate to 25~30 psi until the bead POPs into place...DON'T EXCEED MAXIMUM TIRE PRESSURE...!!

This might help..
