Us customer service - Dodge brand site brief description: Wheel problems comments: Hello, I owned a 2001 Ram 1500 for 7 years & 400,000 miles with no complaints. I recently bought a 2007 4X4. I am really glad that Dodge has not made too many changes to the truck. I only have one major complaint about this truck. The wheels! I live in the country down a dirt road. The wheels are made wrong. Everytime I go in out from my house when it's muddy, the mud gets in a groove on the inside of the rim that makes the frontend shimmy really bad. It is so hard to dig this dirt and mud out you almost have to take the wheels off to get it all. This is going to really wearout the frontend parts very prematurely. The wheels are 17" and on gravel roads, rocks get hung between the rim and brake caliper, and cut the rims. 20" rims have plenty of clearance. This is an issue that needs to be addressed. The shaking is very dangerous on a wet highway!! I have talked with several other owners even Chevy owners that are having the same problem. I contacted Dodge and they replied it wasn't of any concern to them and that I was on my own. It seems a truck that list for $32,000 would have a set of wheels that would not give this much trouble. Thank you, mike gentis mileage: 24,000 servicing dealer: Steve jones, wynne, ar.

- the contact stated that mud and or snow got into and froze in the rims of the 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 with 500 failure mileage. The vehicle then shook when driven, almost uncontrollably. The vehicle was taken to a dealer, and they determined that the rim had a cup that held the snow and mud, which threw the vehicle out of alignment. The contact was concerned that he will one day have an accident because of this. The current mileage was 3,900 miles. Updated 04/30/07.
