    Re: cracks in rims

    That would be really strange to have cracks in ALL FOUR wheels...
    I have never heard of that.... maybe one, but not all four.
    I would want to see the cracks for myself.... he may just be wanting to sell you a new set of wheels.

    Just as a point of reference... my 2006 has almost 130,000 miles on it and the factory chrome wheels are fine.

    Hello rays07dys,

    I am sorry your vehicle had cracks in all four rims. Was the dealership able to resolve this issue and fix your rims for you? Let me know if you have any other questions or concerns! Have a great night.

    Sincerely,

    Laura M.

    Re: cracks in rims

    I didnt see the cracks myself but 1 rim did have a crack in it from last year while it was still under warranty the dealer said it wasn't covered. They told me they filled the crack with a epoxy or something to hopfully keep the air from leaking out. I baby my Cadi and always looking out for potholes,

    Re: cracks in rims

    Your problem or the 'problem' the dealer says you have . . . has a high probability of - Not Likely in all 4 wheels.

    Were any of your tires losing air?

    Filling a crack in a rim with epoxy??? Is this DOT approved???

    Sometimes tires will lose air, because they are not sealing well around the bead.
    The service shop can apply a sealant when seating the tire bead, which usually takes care of the problem.

    As Jim stated before, not likely all 4 wheels would have the problem.

    You need a second opinion from a reputable service shop.

    Those 9 spoke wheels look so much better to me than the gaudy Platinum wheels I have. Anyone near NC could easily tempt me to swap if he feels the reverse.

    My car was in Michigan for 5 years, until it was bought by CarMax and shipped to south Florida.
