I started this thread more because I was worried about the filter actually falling off at 60 MPH, than I was about a leak.

I'd suspect the tires.. and get a road force balance to narrow it down. could also try rotating them and seeing if anything changes.

There is a limit to how much weight you can use to balance . Check if you passed it . Example 10 pound of weight .(just a random value) for big rig if I recall its 10 ounce) so for car its probably way lower .love travel center sell special valve tip
