Mystery loss of air pressure on FX35

Hello, new forum member here looking for a little help.

I am the original owner of a 2004 FX35 with AWD & 20" Chrome Wheels.

The vehicle now has 80,000 miles of mostly local driving in the southeastern USA.

Today I checked the air pressure of my tires, as I regularly do, and the right rear had only 10 lbs of pressure.

I suspected that I'd picked up a nail and had a slow leak ... but, I can find no visual problem with the tire nor the stem.

I pumped up the tire and it has not lost pressure after a few hours, but I'm really puzzled.

I figure it must be some unusual problem with the bead of the tire and/or the rim.

If anyone out there has any idea what might be happening here, I'd appreciate hearing from you. Thanks.

My FX35 has 4 new tires and 1 has a slow leak... losses half the air in 10 days. So JUST TIRES checked it completely with water, dye & light & found nothing. ..ok then in end he just sealed it & packed it back and put it back on my FX. 0 charge.
