Just my 2 cents.

ZIP i have used the dishwashing liquid myself on the tubeless tires on my 67 camaro...they would still leak down but would take up to 3 or 4 times longer to leak down..but i am sure this was a rim to tire seal instead of losing it thru the rubber itself..u are right this technique has been around for decades an old timer turn me on to this 5 yrs ago.
