I have just had to replace all 4 of my alloy wheels due to buckling. I have heard that there are a few people who have had this problem too. I have only had the car 9 months. The ford dealer where I purchased the car offered to pay for 2 wheels which I declined as I have heard the alloy they are using is not of a good quality.

Anyone out there in Ford land had or heard of this issue. :angry:

Its a well known issue on the mk7 fiesta's. I think the new alloys for the facelift fiesta (7.5) are meant to be alot stronger

best bet is to buy aftermarket, or if you dont care, just get steel wheels which are stronger than any alloy could be.

I got some smart black alloys from a specialist car place, and at half the price ford were going to charge, and they look stronger
