    For info purposes, we had this same problem with our 07 Escalade ESV but we have after market rims. To make matters worse they are super expensive (they came on the car when we bought it 6 months ago) - 24 inch Giovanni's. Since they weren't factory- the dealership wasn't an option.

    After 3 flat tires in a row (and 1 complete replacement tire) and several different repair places looking at it we got the suggestion to find a rim repair specialist. We found a mobile guy who came out and showed us the corrosion areas under the tire where the chrome coating had flaked or torn off. Those areas were preventing an air tight seal so the tire was slowly going flat. He charged us $50 to grind down those areas on the rim to smooth it out. All of it was interior so it's not visible when the tire is put back on. Problem solved!
