Third times the charm, I guess.
Have the tire place pull the tire off and clean the beads off with a "cookie" (scotch brite pad on a stick). We find that often on aging cars the aluminum will corrode under the finish of the wheel and cause the tire to not seal properly. Cleaning the bead works wonders.
