NEW Cooper tires: 19x filled with air, told to put nitrogen in tires, still 4 flats, now they say its the rims & I need new wheels.

Dealer & tire co said the the tires bubble in the tank, someone used glue around the rim. Everytime they tell me they need to be cleaned. Everyone is blaming everyone and I'm stuck with flat tires & pressure loss year around.

That's ridiculous, maybe they're not putting the valve stems in correctly. There is no reason for all four to be flat if they're new and the correct size for true wheels, meaning the rims aren't bent, if they're constantly bleeding down it's due to incorrectly installed valve stems or, no valves in the stems, or someone is sabatoshing you. Ask to speak with the service director, they're the one in control of that department.

Did this dealer sell and install these tires? If so, they have to stand behind there work!

I had that exact problem with the wheels on my old MGB. The steel rims had rusted right where the tire seels. After spending a hour with a wire brush on a drill brushing the rust down to bare metal they held air. So if you have old wheels with rust around the bead area either you get rid of the rust or the wheels.
