I have a 06 Titanium S with stock rims and Scorpion tires. I've had the tires for almost two years now, putting 35K miles on them.

For the last 6-8 months my front right tire has been slowly loosing air. I fill it up in the summer every 2 weeks or so but I find myself filling it more often in the cold weather (every 3-4 days). My local indy has a dunk tank and says that the rim is bad. I didn't hit anything, it just won't hold the bead seal. He has tried to 'fix' it twice already.

Is this common? Any suggestions?

Does anyone recommend using the Porsche tire sealer as a long term solution?

Tire sealants normally distribute themselves around the inside circumference of the tire opposite the tread.. centrifugal force causes that. I doubt if any would reach the bead area. You might try a real performance tire shop. I have one down here at the shore who does all my wheel/tire work, when I had a similar problem with a BMW M-Coupe rim they cleaned up the sealing surface on the rim, then used some sealant as they reinstalled the tire. Problem ended.

If you want to use them - it's "The Front End Shop" in Farmingdale NJ. Good guys, good attitude and honest.
