Front Rim Problems

I have a Velocity Deep V front rim and I'm having some problems.
Recently I hit a pot hole and got a pinch flat. I changed the tube and pumped it up and it was fine until I pulled my bike out the next morning and found that it was flat. I changed and checked the tube again and it was the rim side of the tube but my rim tape was intact. I changed the tube once more and pumped it and it lasted me through 70 miles in one day on 80-90 PSI I then pumped it up to 110 PSI and it lasted me a while. This morning I pulled my bike out and it's deflated to about 50-60 PSI right now. Can someone help me out? I don't think it's my rim tape because my rim tape is intact.

Check for little burrs in the tire. You might need to put a small amount of rim tape on the inside of the tire itself to cover up any burrs.
