The chrome plated rims on my Concorde LXI have severe oxidation on the hub area, the valve stems, and bumps on the lip area of the rims. My tires continually lose pressure and I have to stop and use a portable pump while on the road. This problem was addressed with the dealer at approx. 37,000. I called the Customer Relations Department at Chrysler. They spoke with the dealer. Both felt the unsafe problem could be solved and that Chrysler would help. Although the customer service rep and the dealership service manager were nice and tried to help, the higher ups told them to inform me that they would not help with the problem. I was informed it will cost me $3,000.00 to fix the problem, and now the dealership has also informed me that they will subtract the money if the from a trade in if the problem is not remedied. Is there a "fix it" kit, so I can solve this unsafe issue? Or is my only resort is to purchase new rims. I feel uneasy selling my vehicle with this problem because I myself have had to stop on the side of the road to put air in my tires. One of my tires has been as low as 15 psi before I had a chance to put air in it. Does anyone have any ideas? The Customer Relations gentlemen and the dealership service manager really thought my issue deserved attention and help, but their hands were tied, and I actually think they felt bad about it. Thank you, Carolyn Nieman

Go on Ebaymotors.com and try to find used rims for your car, or go to sears or something cheap and buy after market rims
