shelbymustangdan Posted January 7, 2013 Report Share Posted January 7, 2013 Hello everyone, This past Saturday, I had my 07 GT500 in for state inspection at my local Ford dealer. On Sunday, I went to wash my car for its winter break and noticed several marks on my rims, mostly around the lug nut holes. I immediately jumped to the conclusion that it was caused by the air wrench used by the mechanic to remove my rims for inspection. (it certainly looked liked it to me) I contacted the Service Director and sent him pictures to show him what I thought was damage caused by his tech during inspection. He responded this afternoon saying this was a known issue called "Fillform cracking". He also went on to say that Ford has a "job aid" documenting the issue, and the remedy which is replacing the entire rim. Unfortunately, it is only covered under the 3yr/36,000 mile warranty. Of course I am coming up on my fifth anniversary and just over 8,000 miles. (Before I hear comments about the mileage, my daily driver is a 01 GT and I have two 67s to play with in addition to the GT500) I know, tough situation to be in.... ;o) Anyway.... Has anyone else heard of such a thing? Is this true or is he blowing smoke up my ass?? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
