I got a new tires for my 2001 dodge stratus with 85,000 on it. I have had to fill the air a few times and took it back. They said the rim needed to be cleaned and resealed again, why did they not do this the first time when the new tires were put on? Well they charged me $45 for all 4 which I knew was a pretty good deal so instead of arguing I just did it. Well same problem and now they are saying I have to replace the rims. I would not have thought much about it until he said "all dodges and chryslers need rims replaced at that mileage" So instead of buying rims I made appointment for next week so I could research this.
I grew up at a repair shop so I thought that was a fishy statement and thought they could have skipped out on these basic services to make more commissions. The only times I have seen rims that needed to be replaced was with dents and such and I have a few scratches but nothing more than that. I stopped into a few shops and they are saying they don't need to be replaced just put on right.
Has anyone ever heard of rims on dodge and chrysler vehicles needing to replaced around 80,000 miles?
