In Topic: 17" Buckled Alloy - Zetec S

29 March 2011 - 09:44 PM

I'm in the process of getting an alloy replacing for my Titanium, having gone through Ford Customer Relations, whom I've found to be extremely helpful, with my case, anyway.

I got told when I put new tyres on that one of my alloys had a buckle, but got told the same, keep an eye on it, and then, before I know it, it's wrecked a tyre :(

Ford Customer Relations told me the maximum they'll pay towards my new alloy is 75, as they feel this is substantial in refurbing a single wheel etc, though I begged to differ, and am now waiting to see what sort of goodwill gesture will now be offered as I feel it's unacceptable, the amount of posts I've read about alloy buckles, and I've told them that! Seems persistance is the key with Customer Relations!

Hope this helps

I might be replacing the alloy as I was told it had a 'slight' buckle, but was then told "don't worry, it's not bad" so it could be a result of today's 'puncture' although there is no obvious damage to the tyre, nails etc, and the tyre has been re-inflated and remains with the correct pressure, but time will tell, I spose once it goes back on the car, weight of the car etc, IF it goes back on, cause tbh, I'd rather just replace than have the inconvienience of a flat tyre, and being a woman! :lol: But I will take it to a tyre place to see first.

Are these titanium alloys or zetec s or zetec alloys that are getting buckled?
Someone start a vote on the subject.
I've hit a couple of big pot holes in the last 2 months and can't see any visible signs, is it like when you hit 50 to 60 and the steering wheel starts to judder?


Titanium alloys. The steering juddered under 30, but seemed to improve slightly above that, at faster speeds.

It would be interesting to start a vote to see how many have had problems!
