I've had air loss in my tires that is far from consistent...
some times I lose the air overnight, sometimes the tires stay well for 3-4 days but I can never go one week without needing to add air.
2 times, we have removed the tires and reset back on to rim and the last time the rims were cleaned and buffed on the edges.
I keep my air at 15psi it works great for the terrain I have to deal with and cuts down on puncture/pinch flats from rocks.

This last time after buffing the rim edges the air held really good for almost 4 days and I thought the battle was over.
Then as looking around at my rear axle I caught it!

Had my suspicions and today its confirmed, my air is leaking at the edge of the rims...

looking for thoughts, comments, feedback on wether its time for new tires, new rims or is there some other amazing solution out there.
