Fix for alloy wheel slow leak

Here at Smart Car Specialist we offer a complete tyre fitting service. Recently a customer reported a slow leak on one wheel. If the tyre and valve are fine, then the leak must come from the alloy / tyre mating surfaces. We were able to confirm this with a quick bubble test, which helped narrow down the source.

With the tyre off we were able to spot the culprit corrosion. The corrosion was rubbed down with wet /and dry paper, sealed with silver paint, and lastly we applied a thin layer of sealant. With the fix, the customer will no longer worry about a slow leak on this wheel.
