Insulating the rim plate while allowing the moisture of the home to penetrate the cold rim is impossible to dry the home enough to stop.

A better choice is to have a air tight vapor seal on the warm side of the insulation. A tight fitting, foil faced 2" thick foam block is used instead of fiberglass. Caulk the seams around the edges of the foam to make it air tight.
