 Description of the problemAfter the car had been operated for ~20k miles, it was time to take it in for tire replacement. This was expected seeing as the stock tires are a soft compound tire. While at the tire shop, it was determined the front passenger rim, and rear driver side rim, we both cracked. The front had four cracks on the inside edge of the rim, and two cracks on the rear rim. After discussing this issue with my local dealer, he informed me that many customers have complained about soft aluminum rims installed on the mercedes s class. Apparently these rims are easily dented, cracked, or punctured, even during normal operation on roads without potholes. I believe these rims are a safety hazard to not only the occupants of my car, but also to other drivers on the road. Apparently this issue has come to light in years past; just google luppino et al v. Mercedes-benz usa. Mercedes needs to place a recall on these rims to ensure the property safety of their vehicles on our roadways.
