Has anyone found a reliable fix for these slow leaks associated with alloys? I've had the wheels ground and sanded but still have two wheels that leak. Is there another solution?

Thanks

I have used rubber cement to glue the tire to the rim. Could be removed
very easily with a wire brush or throttle body cleaner.
Check for warpage or bends, that could be your problem.
