Another Buckled Wheel From Ford

3 posts in this topic

Just to let you know guys I went to the garage today to check why one of my tyres needed to be added some air every 5 days and it tured out that alloy is buckled. Its not serious and I was told I can drive but you could easly see it and probably air was going out from there. It was not done by me as I bought my car two months ago and air was going out since then. I will never know how it happened and my car seem to drive normal without wobble or shiver at high speeds. When i saw it all i thought was damm, I need new set of alloys as I would not risk another bad quality of ford's alloys. Probably in the future i will need to replace them as there are many topics here about buckled alloys :/ not happy but only 15 pounds to replace my tyre :unsure:

yeah 15 quid for simple job. They have replaced valve, did some inspection (if there are no screws) and put some glue where buckle is. They told me that air shouldnt come out now. Balanced again and job done. They didnt do anything to the alloy.

I think air is still coimg out so I have been left with the same problem...
