I'm sure you or the tire place have, but did you spray around / in the valve stem? its rare, but sometimes the little needle thing inside the stem isn't screwed in all the way.

If he went to 48 psi it may have popped the bead into position.

on a side note...
Your detailer does tires on the side? pretty sure the balancer has to be calibrated at certain intervals. Usually the mounting machine and balancer equipment is kinda pricey and you need the volume to justify the expense.

Yeah, he sprayed the valve stems multiple times. They tried to tighten the needle thing but it was already tight. Everything is ok now. Itís a very small leak so I guess I have to wait a couple of weeks to see if itís still leaking.

Jack Williams was going to do it for free, but last time they scratched all four wheels. Didnít want to deal with that headache again lol. My detailer has a touchless machine and has mounted/balanced several vehicles with no issues. Itís not impossible that the bead didnít seal properly. The more I think about it the more it makes sense.
