because my tire was going flat, the mechanics found that the wheel was cracked. they ordered one; it came and was wrong size; when they ordered the next one, they were told that there were 500 on back order! this 1st visit was on 7/5/00 and i didn't receive the new tire until 8/21/00. what if we don't find out that these wheels are cracked until one breaks apart? how are we to know this could happen?( dot number: tire size: 17 )

Sept 01, 2000
Location:
Ellicott City, MD

both rear tires began going flat on a weekly basis. both began occuring at about the same time in august, 2000. no puncture could be found in tires. reported problem to dealer (antwerpen dodge, columbia, md). dealer serviced vehicle and reported they could find no problems. tires continued going flat. antwerpen again serviced vehicle, dismounted one rear tire from wheel and found severe wheel corrosion. told us it was our fault because we had put fix-a-flat in the tire...we had not! we have put nothing but air into these tires. chrylser was contacted (1-800-992-1997) and after speaking with antwerpen's service mgr declined to warrant defect. chrysler wants us to pay $625.00 per wheel to replace these defective wheels a that are only one year old! wheels have now been examined by a wheel specialty shop (ye ole wheel shop, 6363 washington blvd, elkridge, md). this shop repairs damaged wheels and does work for several insurance companies. specialty shop found no evidence of fix-a-flat or any other foreign material in tire/wheel. informed me that this type of corrosion was common with chrome plated wheels that also had been chrome plated on the inside surfaces. indicated that moisture had gotten into the tire/wheel assembly (probably through an air hose at a service station). the moisture then created a reaction between the chrome and the wheel material causing the wheel to "eat itself". wheel examined has holes in the inside of the wheel where the reaction has eaten completely through the material. shop informed me that quality manufaturers do not chrome plate the inside of the wheel to avoid this known problem. they also informed me that it was likely that all four of the wheels on this vehicle were bad. they will eventually become weak from corrosion and could break apart. chrysler continues to refuse to recognize the problem as a warrantable defect. this is a safety issue as the wheels could fail at speed on the highway causing a crash.

since purchasing my sebring in may '98 i have had 6 flat tires. i have never had a flat before. after speaking with other sebring owners it seems there could be a fault in the soft aluminum wheels. i have just had my second flat in the past 2 weeks and am afraid to get into the car. this is happening on 3 of my wheels,not just the same one. usually it is a slow leak. i work for the airlines and i am out of the country quite a bit. this makes it even more strange as i probably drive half the miles of anyone else. since purchasing the car from another person in may '98 i have driven only 15,000 miles. what should i do? thanks.*ak (dot number: ? tiresize: oep215/50r)
