My daughter had a 2002 Gallant with aluminum wheels. We had all sorts of
problems with them retaining air. My indy tried to clean them a few times
and they would last for a while but then they'd starting losing air
again. Those wheels were one of the reasons we decided not to let her
take the car to college.
Now she's driving Mom's 2005 Taurus Wagon. I kid her that she's the coolest
kid on campus. ;-) In reality, she really likes the car. It has a rear
facing seat in the back so she can take extra friends when they go out, plus she loves the cargo space for when she goes camping, skiing, etc.
I had a pickup truck with those miserable alum wheels. SAME PROBLEM.
Constant flat tires. A mechanic at a tire repair place finally told me
the same thing. They are not reliable, which means to me they are not
practical. I had planned to replace those rims with steel, but the truck
was old, and the transmission began slipping, so I junked the truck. END
