Slow Puncture

I have a slow puncture from my front tyre which does not show up at the local tyre place. I was told that as alloys corrode the seal between the tyre and the rim is compromised. The fitter sanded the rim and put the tyre back. The slow puncture continues (3-4psi per week).

Has anyone had this problem before on an IS200 or any car with alloys? Just wondering whether a new tyre might help (ie fresh/softer rubber).

i had the same problem with two of my wheels.

i used that instant puncture repair (the stuff in the aerosol can)about six months ago and they still haven't leaked.

I've had that problem on several alloy wheels in the past and the tyre fitters have always managed to sort it out by sanding wheel down AND painting black sealer on wheel also. Did your tyre fitter paint the wheel with sealer or just sand it down??

I had it done on two wheels many months ago (cost about £15 per wheel) and they lose no air at all now.
