I have 4 Vega rims, two of which leak from corrosion on the lip side which mates to the tire. Can this be easily repaired? Any suggestions on using inner tubes as a solution? Thanks in advance for your insight.
Cheers, James

Since I can't see the corrosion I won't judge the integrity of the wheel. If you feel it's safe then you can use a tube but it may difficult to find a tire shop that will mount them anymore.
Another option maybe to paint the inside of the wheel with Glyptal. I've had good luck with that on Cromodoras.

Thanks for the advice, NMMilano

a thin smear of RTV along the contact surface. At least that's what works on a leaky bobcat rim. Others more knowledgeable than i will chime in, but I would think a wheel shop could re-machine the bead surface.
