Asked by Sep 13, 2007 at 10:35 AM about the 2001 Chrysler 300M

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The air in my tires keeps leaking - I have had new tires put on the car and was told it is the rims they used when manufacturing the car that causes the tires to leak.  I have to put air in the tires every 2-3 days, by that time they are almost flat.  Does anyone else have trouble with this and how can I get help?  New rims are too expensive, does chrysler not take care of this problem?

Could be warped rims, but it could also be the valve stems. Did they clean the crap off of the bead seating area? Aluminum rims over time need to have the built-up corrosion and gunk cleaned off the bead seating area before new tires are mounted or you will have exactly the problem you are describing. This is sometimes accomplished by a light buffing or even a very fine wire brushing.
