Tire Help

I was wondering if anyone has had a similar problem, mounted 4 new tires today and one of the rear rims leaks around the lip of the seal. We noticed that on that lip of the rim there are 4 small holes that are apparently holding some nasty tire sealant from the previous owner, and I believe that is why it wont hold air. Does anyone know what these holes are for, and has anyone had this problem before. A Possible solution maybe JB WELD the holes, but would like to see if someone has had similar problems and what they did. We tried putting patches where the tire and rim meet and it slowed it down but eventually went flat.
