Question aluminum wheel on 05 GT leaks air

bought the 05 gt new
have had very few complaints
now having trouble with the 17inch chrome wheels
they are corroding in side leading to air loss
have cleaned and buffed but still lose air

How much air loss are we talking? All of the air? I have an 05 GT with the rims and I seem to lose like 5-10lbs of pressure over like a month. I was thinking it was the tires, never thought to look at the rims.

You might have a dent. Ive dented 3 which led to air loss.
I have made a promise to GOD alllllllmighty that if I dent another Im
buying aftermarket wheels.
