Metzler tires will not hold pressure

Mad I bought a 2006 Honda VTX 1300 R6 new in 2006. A few years back, I decided to put some new rubber on the bike. It came with Dunlops (of course). My mechanic (the best in the West) suggested Metzlers. I concurred, and he put them on the bike back in 2011. They will not hold pressure. We've tried everything we can think of to get them sealed. They refuse. New stems and valve cores did nothing. We polished the rims to ensure nothing was in the way of a good contact seal - No good. I am running out of patience, and I'm tired of constantly refilling the tires with air prior to going out for a spin around the town. Frown

Looking for ideas in Lubbock.
