I'm thinking about some silicone spray to soften and swell the rubber. Some sprayed periodically on the outside then some inside

Why not just take it to a shop and have them fix it? Goodyear fixes flats for free and they don't even charge for balancing. I used to go to Town Fair Tire which also fixed flats for free but charged $4 for balancing.

If the leak is due to corrosion under the bead then you may be able to reseat the bead in a different orientation.

But if the bead itself is bad then good luck. New tire time.

How are they going to fix it?

Break the bead from the rim (at least on that side), check for / remove rust from the rim and any that is stuck to the tire, apply sealant.

Take some of this advice. Tires are kind of important especially if you drive the car anywhere near me.

Agreed. I'll be avoiding that 40 year old Toyota you drive, like the plague. The vette hasn't moved since June when I took it to get inspected. All my tires rot before they wear out.

I had a set of older snow tires on corroded alloy wheels. They had started off new together. They would take turns leaking - always a slow leak. The wheel-tire unit could be temporarily fixed by taking the tire off - cleaning things up, applying some sort of tire dressing and reassembling. But it was costing a lot and getting me no-where.

I checked out getting the wheels sand blasted and powder coated. But that would have cost more than I paid for the wheels in the first place. And the shop said they didn't think they would look all that good.

So I scrapped both the alloy wheels and snow tires.

Scuff up the old bead slightly with scotchbrite. Be careful, the rubber is pretty thin in spots. But you also want a shiny rim for it to pop onto and that revulcanizing goo just to be sure.
