Does anyone know the best way to repair a slow leak in the rims of my 308 wheels? Am thinking of getting a tube in for the short term but does anybody know about parts or the likes to get it fixed?

Usually, a simple wheel refurb will fix it up.

Dismount all the tyres, strip and re paint all wheels inside and out after first diagnosing the exact point of leak. (Sink them in a big bath)

Wheels can be welded or most likely bonded to fix any larger holes or porous points if needed.

Often, it's just corrosion at the tyre bead, caused by using caustic soaps when mounting tyres, that cause the problem.
