Today I'm driving home and a guy next to me points to my right front tire. So, I go to a near by gas station and fill my almost flat tire up. 32 miles later I arrive at the tire place where I bought the tires for my 2000 Rave4. A half hour later they tell me I have a rim leak. A rim leak? I've never heard of such a thing. The guy shows me where on the rim the small leak is coming from and tells me I will have to order a new rim from Toyota. $136.00 dollars later and the rim will be in at Toyota in two days. I'm told 15 bucks to install the new rim to the older tire. I've never heard of this rim leak thing. Both places the tire company where I bought the tires as well as the Toyota parts department told me this does happen quite often. I've been driving for some 38 years now and have never had this happen. My rims are factory rims by the way.
