What can cause repeated flats, besides a defective wheel?

My rear-right corner on my 95 Eagle Talon TSi AWD keeps eating through tires. Besides the obvious explanation that the wheel itself is bent/cracked causing it to leak, is there anything else that might be causing this?

The tire has gone completely flat 3 times now. I've limped to back home and to tire shops. I suspected an issue with the right-rear wheel after the second time, but both tire shops I had it at did not notice an issue with it.

I still think it could be the wheel itself, but is there anything else that might be causing these flats?

Just wanted to get some input before I drop several hundred on a new set of wheels and tires.

Thanks!

If you know your car always gets flats, why aren't you checking the tires before you drive?

Do a thorough inspection on the wheel/tire and I'm sure you'll find a leak somewhere. Find the source of the leak and fix it.

Whoops, didn't word that properly. I've already gone through 2 new tires and this would be the third. All my new tires keep going flat. I've had to replace them since the car basically ran flat and chewed up the tire.

Leaky valve stem?
Someone hates you and deflates your tire?
Gremlins?

Remove the wheel from the car and check for a hairline crack. If you can't see any, submerge the wheel underwater and look for bubbles. If there is a leak anywhere, it will show.

Unless someone's screwing with you, both your tire shops suck and should've found the cause of the leak.. It can only come from 3 places:

-leak from tire
-bead corroded on wheel, wheel cracked/bent, corroded around valve stem
-valve stem leaking or valve stem core loose/gasket not sealing

What about gremlins?
It has to be them.

Just submerge the wheel in water. Leak will show right away if you have one.
