Best way to check for air leaks is to use a spray bottle or small brush with water/dish soap mix. I would check the air filler valves first. Sometimes they stick and leak very slowly. I was told by a tire man that the valve caps are also important because they seal the valve stem. Spraying the soap mix on a valve or fitting will make the leak bubble.

Another consideration is to check for a line or fitting that is stressed. It may only leak when it is getting jostled.
