It is normal to need topping off every few days. I commute every day and top off every 2-3 days. Rims and tires should not normally have anything to do with it. If the leakage seems excessive after reading the replies just replace the tubes and be done with it. Check your rim tape, the stip of material that protects the tube from the spoke ends. If it looks like a stip of inner tube, replace it with Velox or other heavy fabric rim tape.
If it ain't broke, mess with it anyway!
