Will fix a flat seal a rim leak?
Re: Using Fix-A-Flat to seal rim leak? Fix-A-Flat may work for a nail hole in the tread area but I doubt it will help at all for a bead/ rim leak. Spinning wheel slings the stuff to the inside of the tread area AWAY from the bead/ rim where the leak is.

On average, tire puncture repair will cost you between $10 and $20. The repair will involve getting the tire patched.
