There must be a Hell of a lot more Scot in you than me.  I rode back to 
Ontario from southern WV with a front tire with a rim leak losing about 5 
psi/day.  I had the rear chaged out due to a piece of metal gouging the 
tread off, but there were no front tires available in Beckley WV.  The front 
had less than 5000 km but I turfed it when I got home because the rim leak 
couldn't be fixed.
