TheInstructor For this exact fault I had 2 of my wheels replaced under ford warranty with. My car was under 3 years old at the time though, but they may pay toward a new pair or more.

bmaxbill Its looking that way but why Ford adopt a minimalistic approach to corrective measures beggars belief.

cianpars Looks like the fourth wheel needs changing then.

bmaxbill After 2 years I noticed corrosion around the valve stems of 3 of the 4 wheels and these were changed, not sure why the 4th wasn't. However I had a new off side front tyre changed last week and it seems to be losing pressure ever so slightly.

cianpars Common problem with alloy wheels I'm afraid, both around the valve stems and the rims.
I suspect that the BMax alloys are a bit substandard compared to the alloys I had on my last Fiesta.

Tyre losing pressure.

I know this has been mentioned before on here, but my front offside tyre has been losing about 5psi
in a fortnight.
Eventually I took it in to be looked at, and it turned out to be corrosion around the valve stem.
This seems to be quite a common fault. Do other Fords get the same problem, or is it just the
quality of the aluminum on the BMax ?
