HELP! I have tires that are leaking air and Costco tried to fix it but said the Tire Rims have rust or something that they can't scrape or polish off and therefore I either need a new set of rims or some non rusted used one's. Where do you find tire rims in the Hampton roads area for a Mazda Millenia? Are there businesses around here that offer Rims other than the Expensive Dealships?

Check the phone book. You should be able to find a used wheel/tire shop in there. If you are looking for the factory replacement, check out eBay. They often times will have new factory wheels at prices that are much below what you will find at the dealership or in retail stores.

If I may offer a suggestion, go to a real tire shop and have them try the repair. There is, to me, a lack of trust in a store that sells tires, 300lb boxes of Tide, and frozen fish.

I've worked previously as a Costco Tire Center manager, they should have been able to sand or remove the rust using a wire brush tool that attaches to the air hose. Then there is a black sealant that can be applied to seal the tire to the rim. I've done this numerous times to rims that were rusted and been able to seal without any further leakage.
If you haven't gotten new rims, try another tire shop like Goodyear or Firestone. Unless you have a hole in the rim then it should be repairable.
