For The 3rd Time In The Last 10 Months I Have Had The Same Problem With The Factory Rims On My Truck. The Problem Is A Hair-line Crack On The Inside Of The Rim That Causes Loss Of Tire Pressure. On The First Occassion ford Replaced The Wheel At No Charge Because Of The 3 Yr 36000 Mile Factory Warranty . On The Second Occassion They Would Not Cover The Wheel Because 36 Month Warranty Was Expired . As Of Today My Truck Is In The ford Dealership For The Third Time With The Same Problem . The ford Service Department Wants To Charge Me $247 For A New Replacement Rim, They Do Not Seem To Concerned About This Ongoing Problem. On The Nhtsa Web Site I Have Read Several Complaints On The 97 ford F150 Concerning The Same Symptoms Of “loss Of Tire Pressure On A Daily Basis “. I Can Assure You That This Is Not Caused By Firestone Tires It Is A Defect In The ford Factory Rims. Please Help!

I Own A ford F150 Truck Bopought New In March Of 1997. I Recently Experienced A Low Tire And The Service Person Said That The Wheel Was Leaking Air And Showed Me The Problem. The Area Around The Valve Stem Was Very Rusty And Was Leaking Air Through The Steel Material Of The Wheel. I’ve Never Had This Happen To Any Of The Many Vehicles Owned By Me In The Past. A Question To The Local Dealer Indicated No Recalls Or Service Bulletins From ford Regarding This Matter. I Consider This To Some Degree A Safety Issue Since Low Tire Pressure Contributes To The Possibility Of Accidents. I Have Three Other Wheels That May Well Be Affected. I Have Yet To Contact The Company Due To The Nature Of Business During The Holidays. I Will Appreciate Your Consideration Of This Problem And Perhaps Investigating Whether It Is Widespread Of Not. Thanks Much For Your Time.

I Have A 1997 f-150 In Which I Had Two Wheels Rust Through So That The Tires Leaked Air. The Other Two Whheels Were Ex Essively Rusted As Well. The Only Solution Was To Replace The 4 Wheels. I Saw No Recalls, So I Suspect This Is A Regional Issue ( Salt In Winter) As I’ve Seen Other 1997 f-150s With Similar Rusted Wheels. Please Look Into This. This Should Be A Manufacturer Recall.*ak
