    Take the wheel weight off and then reapply it. Sometimes it digs into the bead and causes it to leak. I had to take it off and re apply it on various occasions and it worked.

    bring it back to where you had the tires mounted
    have them pull the tire and check / clean up the lip on the rim
    then have them remount / balance the tire
    check it for leaks before it goes back on the car

    if it leaks at the weight then the wrong type of weight was used. if it is new take it back you should not have to fix it.
