According to the lawsuit the 17-inch and larger alloy wheels in 2007 or later BMW 5 Series cars are subject to premature cracking under ordinary driving conditions, putting drivers at risk.
Lead plaintiff Ki-Teh Kim bought a used 2007 BMW 5 Series covered by a 4-year/50,000-mile limited warranty and when a low tire pressure warning appeared on the dashboard in November, Kim took the car to an authorized BMW dealer.
The dealer told him that the one of his car’s alloy wheels was “structurally unsound.” However, it was not covered by the warranty.
