    I own a 2008 F250 power stroke and have had the second cracked OEM 20″ alloy rim in 3 months. Truck driven highway only with very low miles. I baby this thing. I do tow a car trailer on occasion but never abused. Cracks are very similar looking and follow the bead line. Both found thru tire leak downs but this is very dangerous and no fluke. I am afraid to tow with it now. Two different rims on same truck! Ford must know something here. Probably under designed or poor quality at the Tiawan factory. Ford is getting a letter from me now.

    I have a 2009 and I and my family where head too family for thanksgiving and I had a low tire
    And I pull in tire shop and they got too look at the tires and said your rims are crack.
    Not one but three of them. So that means I have too buy 4 rims for this truck now. And ford is not going too help. This is safety Hazard and ford needs too take care of the matter.
    I’m 58 and I have never run in this before.
    So is there is any Lawer out there that would like too take on ford.
