Alloy wheels can be particularly susceptible (sp?) to leakage. I recently bought a set of second hand alloys (for my Cavalier) and have had to have all four tyres removed, the rims cleaned up and bitumen added to stop them all from deflating slowly. Total cost at a local independant tyre place was 5 a wheel so no problem!

EDIT - I'm not sure what benefit the bitumen has, but none of them has leaked even slightly in the last four weeks!
