Had similar situation on my '02 f250 two wheel drive on set of new Michelins bought from Sam's around 2014. We ended up repositioning tire on wheel and leak went away. I have aluminum/alloy wheels too.

My wheels are steel. A couple of days ago I put 83# of pressure in that tire. Hasn't leaked since. Apparently the bead had somehow become unseated somewhere, although it could also be that the 12 pumps of Green Slime I put in it finally found the hole. I don't know, but for the time being at least the problem is solved. I once bought a tractor from the mesquite area of Texas. The previous owner had spent a good many hours bushhogging mesquite. He had filled the front tires with foam so they didn't leak, but each of the back tires had about a million thorns in it, and that is no exaggeration. The tire shop said it was hopeless because if they spent several hours with a small side grinder,cutting off all the thorns inside, the barbs would continue to migrate the thorns inward and puncture a new tube. So I put an entire gallon of Green Slime into each tire, aired up the tires, jacked the tractor off the shop floor, and spun the tires for several minutes. About a million tiny green drops appeared on the outside of each tire. They never again leaked. Made a believer out of me.
