problem #5

TPMS alerted us of a low tire. When taken to repair we where notified the left rear rim was cracked and leaking air. Car was only driven on the highway, no rough roads...what would cause the rim to crack? I understand the uk's ntsb has issued a recall as BMW admitted that their wheels had defective alloy metal causing the rims to breakdown. However, BMW of North America has not admitted to any defective metal and has not accepted responsibility. Hope this gets reviewed for safety before some gets physically injured or dies as a result of these defective wheels. Having reviewed the forum, there are hundreds of these discussions regarding cracked rims on bmws. This is not a one case incident, thereby warrants further investigation.

Rear passenger wheel, cracked again, less than a year before I had to purchase a new wheel due to cracks causing it to shimmy. A year later BMW tells me the same wheel is cracked again causing the car to shimmy. Wheels cost $500. + per wheel. As a result I replaced all the wheels with a set of new american racing wheels, and shimmy has gone. There is a problem with these wheels, I have a four door sedan, not sports package, just standard wheel.

You can't hit a pot hole without bending a rim my daughter just bought 09 328 with 7800 miles, drove it 3000miles, has one cracked rim, two bent rims and the shop said she has two damaged tires. She bought 4 new tires. I'm sorry I told her to buy BMW. My son bought 08 335xi with 60000 miles. Drove it for a few months, the dealer said it needed 3 rims straighten. Also because it had a mis the dealer gave him an estimate for $18,000 to fix the rims, the two leaks and the transmission. He got rid of it as fast as he could and took a beating. I have been driving for 56yrs without a bent rim until I bought the 07 BMW.

The wheels were checked due to several instances of tire pressure loss. It was discovered that 3 of 4 rims have cracks that are causing the tires to lose pressure. Upon doing some research, it is apparent that this defect has affected many BMW owners with run flat tires.

BMW 3 series and also other series with run flat tires have an issue that with an average bump like a manhole cover the wheel will crack. I have replaced 3 so far on my 2007 335I at my cost. After research I have seen that this is a common issue and that everyone has had the same experience with BMW denying it was the wheel. The car has 45,000+/- miles on it. When brought in due to rapid air loss BMW states it was the driving conditions not their wheel. I drive on mostly highway roads and secondary roads to my house. I have never hit any kind of pothole or curb that would cause an alloy rim to be cracked. In all 3 instances, the crack is exactly the same and the replacement for this damage is in excess of $500 for the rim. In two of the instances, I had to get a new run flat tire as well at a cost of $400 a piece. All three of these problems have occurred over the past 5 months!!
