Default Deflating tyres, corroded alloy wheels

I recently had all four tyres changed due to reoccurring flats with two of them. However now, they're deflating at a much faster rate, and my rear left one can lose all of it's pressure overnight. I was informed when i had them changed that because they are badly corroded and flaking, that was causing the flats.

Do these alloys look bad enough to cause that? Before I pay 180 to get them refurbished.

Thank you

Corrosion on the outside face doesn't matter - the bead seat surfaces do, and may be more or less corroded than the face. No way to tell w/o having the tyre off the rim. Also possibly the seat for the valve...

Unless they tyre guys were expecting to also do the rim refurb, I see no reason not to believe them. Even then, they are obviously leaking...

I had a similar issue on my old 307. I used some tyre slime and then got them to wire brush and seal rims when tyres were next changed

Hi...back when xr3i's had bad corroded wheels we used to spin them up on the balancer and use a wire brush on the bead seating area and cover with a black sticky/glue type fluid and that used to seal up 'bead leaks' a treat and you could still remove the tyre later if needed

Due to the adverse weather back in February our roads (across the UK) around here are terrible.. I've just had a claim against the local County Council turned down (I shall fight on) but I'll tell that story another time. Two of my alloys from my 207 were damaged by a pot hole, one so bad (see below) I had to replace tyre and wheel. But I noticed the same problem as we replaced tyres on two of our wheels (a new one) and a rear (which started deflating because of a small but big enough dent so that new tyre couldn't sit correctly on the bead unless full inflation and the black glue was applied) and although the rest of the tyre sits okay, because of a small amount of damage, every now and then deflation occurs. It's on the rear (car facing side) where the damage is and if yours is doing the same thing, it's probably similar if not the same. The wheel you have can be machined and rolled to straighten out any damage, but you can pick up a used but good wheel for around 50+ anyway good luck, your not alone....

That sucks! Well, an update on my situation was that I had all four alloys refurbished. Cost 180 all in, and they have come up like new. This has fixed my deflating problem. Before and after pics attached. If anybody is from Middlesbrough way I can fully recommend Total Wheel Solutions. Mine were an extreme case, and I am so happy with the results.

Oh nice! Shame I am all the way down on the Sunshine Coast in North Essex :-(

Hey ho, at least you got it sorted...

All the small one man band tyre fitters I have used always clean up the bead seat before fitting a new tyre. I suspect the larger outfits are more interested in getting your money and getting you out as quickly as possible.
