Default e60 tyre losing air

Hi All,

my e60 loses tyre pressure and as much as 20 psi in 4 weeks if not topped up

it only happens on front wheels and I have so far taken them more than 5 times to reseal the rim and it is ok for 2 weeks and starts all over again .

garage told me my rims are fuc*** and it is rust that is causing air to scape.

i can't see any rust inside or outside of it and each time the garage uses their wire brush ( electrical and cleans all around the inner of the rim ( both sides) but still

do you think it is my rim?

if so would you have refurbished the rims at cost of 80 each or just buy a new set of 4 sport rims ?

Agree.. not worth your time, might as well make it a good time to upgrade/change your look since the cost of 2 is enough to pay for a whole set. If you're looking for stock rims you could get a whole set for a couple hundred easy.
