Repair or replace tire?

I have a slow leak in one of my new AD08 street tires. I'm pretty sure it could be repaired but sometimes I use these tires on track. Is it safe to repair or should I replace?

Replace, no question. Is $300 worth risking your life?

Agreed; but are you sure it's not a valve or the wheel itself?

I'll have it checked before for valve or wheel problems before I trash it. But will replace it instead of fixing it otherwise. I think I already knew the answer but was hoping I was wrong

Thanks for the advice guys
