I have a bad leak in the rear left tire of my 2009 535i and found out it wasn't the RFT tire but a leak from the inside of the rim, anyone have similar problems after 25K miles? The worse part is that I only have 2 months left on a 3-year lease and is planning to turn it for a F10.

Now I have to fork over some dough to fix the rim and was told the tire may also need to be replaced. Please if anyone can recommed a cheap fix from local shop in the S. Cal area I would greatly appreciated.

How long will it hold air? Long enough to get past inspection?

If you can figure out where the leak is, demount the tire, smear silicone sealant on the inside of the rim to cover the leak. Should work for a bit.

Although this defect- if not due to damage- should be a warranty claim.
