Default Tire is slowly losing air

My rear right tire is slowly losing air. I've put air into this tire 3 times in the last 3 weeks. It's needs to be inflated to 30psi. I filled it to 35 psi every time. Now, for the fourth time, it needs air again. What are my options? I'm assuming it has a small pin-hole somewhere. Is this something that a dealership can fix? How much does this generally cost..what will they do?

Go to a tire shop. It's could be a nail or something in the tread ($20 patch), faulty valve stem ($20 valve stem), a leaky bead ($15 dismount and clean), or something in the sidewall (new tire $$$).

If you have a nail and want to be ghetto you could get a plug for about $5, but those are not considered as safe as a patch.

Tire shop, or dealership. They'll dunk the tire in a tub of water and find the hole. Or, you could get some soapy water in a spray bottle and find it yourself. Not much point, if you can't fix it yourself, though.
I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em. -
