Had similar situation on my '02 f250 two wheel drive on set of new Michelins bought from Sam's around 2014. We ended up repositioning tire on wheel and leak went away. I have aluminum/alloy wheels too.

My wheels are steel. A couple of days ago I put 83# of pressure in that tire. Hasn't leaked since. Apparently the bead had somehow become unseated somewhere, although it could also be that the 12 pumps of Green Slime I put in it finally found the hole. I don't know, but for the time being at least the problem is solved. I once bought a tractor from the mesquite area of Texas. The previous owner had spent a good many hours bushhogging mesquite. He had filled the front tires with foam so they didn't leak, but each of the back tires had about a million thorns in it, and that is no exaggeration. The tire shop said it was hopeless because if they spent several hours with a small side grinder,cutting off all the thorns inside, the barbs would continue to migrate the thorns inward and puncture a new tube. So I put an entire gallon of Green Slime into each tire, aired up the tires, jacked the tractor off the shop floor, and spun the tires for several minutes. About a million tiny green drops appeared on the outside of each tire. They never again leaked. Made a believer out of me.

There might be or could have been a few grains of sand in one area of the bead.
Would not leak when off the truck and in a tank.
Would not leak when on the truck either.
Until parked with the tire valve up, down, left or right, etc.
Then it would leak down until it got to the "sweet spot" of psi and stop leaking.

Been there, done that.

Still don't know what the problem was, but apparently had something to do with the bead not seating. Ever since I put 84# of air in it, it has not
leaked.

Had a tire on a pickup one time with slow leak. Turned out to be a little plastic scan tag stuck on the bead that was not removed when tire was mounted

Thanks. I'll check the bead when I next remove the tire from the rim. But it seems like there would be bubbles coming from the bead if it was leaking from there.

Green slime is made to sell not use.

As long as I keep 80# of pressure in the tire it doesn't leak down. On the contrary to your response, I have had excellent results almost all the time from using green slime. My most memorable experience with it was concerning a tractor I bought from the mesquite country of Texas. The back tires each had thousands of thorns sticking through the tubeless tires. The air would leak out in just a few hours. I put a gallon of green slime into each tire and then aired them up and spun the tires for a few minutes while the tractor was jacked up off the ground. The result was thousands of tiny green wet dots appearing all over each tire. Neither tire ever leaked again.
