Ford Rims
Just an FYI if you have an F350 Or F450 with the alcoa style aluminum rims. Last year I noticed corrosion on the two rear rims by the valve stems, Ford replaced under warranty. Just over a year later I notice some corrosion by the valve stems on the rear & by the lug nuts on the front rims, luckily still under warranty & Ford replaced all four. Service writer told me they have replaced quite a few, so if you're still under warranty Id check them out. Now I need to keep the new ones from corroding.

I was just at the Dealership for first oil change and was talking to service manager about slow leaks on three out of six valve stems. He said ford does have new design and reccomended I schedule an appointment to get all six replaced.

I see the valve stems are slightly different on the replacement rims. I think the pitting issues were from the valve stems being installed with no clearance and the coating was damaged. In still putting a little clear silicone around each one.
