I have no problems at the moment but is there a way of identifyng the problem Ronal wheels?
I had to change one of my 16'' alloys today due to a puncture, and Ronal is stamped in the rear of the spokes along with the part number and the ford logo.
none of my wheels are buckled though

amazingly, as i was photographing the pothole a guy wandered over who'd had the same thing on his VW golf and i got a call from him later telling me an audi driver had his go bang minutes after i left! 3 cars in 20 minutes!!
annoying bit is that it wasnt even the biggest pothole i've seen today... essex highways are sooooooo forking out for this! great service from gates of harlow ford though, booking me in for a replacement tomorrow morning and doing my courtesy check at the same time

Im sure you all agree that it is far too common, as a 2 x wheel victim myself I know first hand the issues, I am still after all these months still arguing with the Ford Executive team who work directly for the CEO, the problem is that Ford can just blame the councils and although we all know that it isn't that the issue is that the damage is caused by potholes, curbs etc and I don't think anyone would say there wheel just buckled while driving BUT the point is the wheels should not have buckled under such a low pressure impact, I know someone else on here is trying via trading standards in relation to his filler cap and I hope he gets it sorted I do however feel that we need some more action in bulk to get this one anywhere, I will speak to my contact at the Executive Office tomorrow or Friday and see if she is OK for me to give out an email or phone number for her so that everyone who has had this can contact them, I can only hope that enough people complaining will actually lead to anything.
I have tried contacting watchdog but they did not respond, I ran a poll on another thread about it and to be honest the results speak for themselves.
If anyone has any idea on anything else we can do let us know, I also would like to say to the people out there who have not got buckled alloys and think we are all just rubbish drivers, there is a high chance that they either have got them without realising (easily done) or they will probably at some point get a buckle.
I am basing that on the fact there are reports of cars all the way back at 58 plate up to 12 plate having this issue so it is not about a bad batch.
I will post any updates if I get any.

Irritating, as I know where most of the pot holes are on my journeys, then BANG, one springs out of nowhere
