that what we do at my work too. i cant tell you how many times ive had people come back in saying their tire's leaking. then we gotta waste the 20 minutes finding out the problem. most of the time if they say its a leak with no puncture we put a new valve stem on and send them on their way. so deffinatly spend the few bucks to save you a hassle down the road, especially if there 3 years old.
