The wheels aren't your problem. the corrosion can be easily removed, the bead area of the tire is damaged by the corrosion. Putting the old tires on new wheels will not solve your problem. I put new tires on heavily corroded wheels all the time (cleaned with a bristle disc) without sealer and have never had a bead leak. Sounds like an incompetent installer is trying to sell you a set of wheels.
