All four of my titanium alloy wheels are also buckled.
I felt vibration through the steering wheel and through the floor so i had the wheels balanced and to my shock all four are buckled.
I saw it for my self as i had a mobile tyre fitter balance them and i saw the buckle bob up and down ARRRRGHG
They are fully balanced now but iam not buying four (4) new alloys i will leave it as it is as i cannot afford £600 on wheels.
Surely we should do something about these crappy soft metal alloy wheels i have never had this problem before with my previous fiestas (6)
Yes my shiney 6months old Fiesta Titanium went in this week to have the vibration checked out, and guess what 4 badly buckled alloys. with a smile from ear to ear the fitter informed me they wanted £730 to replace them, I duly informed him I have been driving 46 years and never buckled a wheel, now i have managed to buckle 4 on the same car without any suspension damage !! I would have had to drop the car from the roof of the house to do that type of damage.so another set of inferior alloys at £730 to go the same road in a month or two is not happening.Ford are 100% responsible in my book, and its up to them to put it right.The battle has just started.

I think the new style of alloy must be a lot better, I don't think we've had anyone yet complain of those ones being buckled.
I hope this is the case and that they're a better quality than all the others
