  1. You should be ok as long as you dont get the fiesta titanium16" wheels. Ive wrote to ford and they sent me a response yesterday so fingers crossed...!!
  2. Mine does it too. I had it checked out and they said the clicking noise is normal!!! Annoying though!!
  3. Re above... Send an email to farin.roberts@bbc.co.uk. If they get enough ppl to notify them of this problem they can look into it further. I have sent a strong complaint letter to ford today so hopefully get a response soon.. Also when i cleaned my alloys yesterday.. Paint is flaking off?? Anyone had this??
  4. No, by the sounds of things its only the fieata 16" and 17" wheels. Its like theres a fault in design and that theinside of the alloy hasnt got enough give.. And thata why theyre breaking. My bfs got 19" alloys and drives on the same roads as me abd has bever had a buckled alloy and there even more low profile than mine. And ford is putting my buckles.down to the low profile???.
  5. Not sure how.many spokes nine have got.. Is these alloy complaints actually gonna be on watchdog coz i got an email yesterday saying they didnt have enough people come forward.
  6. You need to send emails to watchdog if uve had this problem. Ive been told they didnt get enough ppl to report it to them so coudnt start a case. That statement you posted clearly shows there wheels arent strong enough for their use!!! Thanks for the info!!!!
  7. I dont drive my car often as always in the city on trains and when i do drive its on a motorway. I havent hit any potholes, hence me saying its not on. I only want to know if others have experienced the same and if ford are giving the same old story.

  9. One buckled wheel You could just be unlucky to get.. Two.. The wheel is obviously not fit for purpose expecially as it has just been replaced one month before.
  10. Hello Everyone.. After owning my ford fiesta zetec with titanium 16" alloy wheels, I have had two buckled front passenger wheels in the space of 2 months, which they are blaming on poor road conditions. I can understand one buckeed wheel due to road conditions, but not two in the space of 2 months.. Has anyone else had a bad experience with these particular alloys, if so how are ford dealing with it? Are they under warranty? Thankss Charlotte
