Agreed, The wheels dont seem to be able to absorb any sort of bump easily. I have two alloys currently out of shape due to potholes, wernt hit that fast or that hard either. Slight dis colour aswell. Im aware of a mate who has a VW sirocco (new shape) and when he left his car in to be serviced they said that his wheels looked a bit discoloured and changed them free of charge without him even complaining!!

You may get somewhere with Ford if you can get a group together who are all expierincing problems with there wheels. Ideally you would want the group to consist of peiople who all own a car with the same spec of Ford wheels to show that it could be a quality error?

Contact Ford first but you also might want to put something on BBC’s watchdog web site, they recently did an article on certain 19” BMW wheels being faulty. :unsure:
