MY HAS A RIM LEAK WHICH HASN'T BEEN SUCCESSFULLY STOPPED AFTER THREE TRIES. CAN I PUT A TUBE IN THE TUBELESS TIRE RATHER THAN BUY A VERY EXPENSIVE REPLACEMENT RIM?

2006 Buick Lucerne • 36,000 miles

TECHNICIANS HAVE CLEANED THE RIM, APPLIED SEALER EACH TIME, BUT CLAIM THE CORROSION HAS MADE THEIR EFFORTS FRUITLESS. I LIVE IN AN AREA WHERE SALT IS USED ON THE ROADS AND THE ALUMINUM, CHROMED RIM HAS BEEN DAMAGED. THE RIM IS AN 18 INCH TEN-SPOKED RIM.

Once the corrosion is this bad, it's time to buy a new rim.
