deflate tire, fill hole with high quality epoxy and go on with life...well, I did anyways for a while after I discovered a pinhole leak in a rim. The best idea, no, but it'll work at least short term. Don't inflate the tire for a day or so to give it ample time to cure. If you could take out the valve in the stem you could vacuum the epoxy into the hole.....never thought of that til now.
