Rim "blew" on 2003 Volkswagen Passat

Has any one had problems with the rims? I was driving and my rim just kind of "blew" the tire did not go flat but the rim bent, has a gash and a large crack.

Has your car got alloy wheels or steel wheels with wheel trims? Has the tire got any sign of damage. You obviously need to get it fixed, check with any tire store see what they think, I've never heard of a problem. Check with the department of transportation and see if anyone has launched an inquire with a similar problem. http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/ivoq/

I am sorry. We did end up going to a junk yard and finding a replacement that matched mine for about $100.00. VW said nothing.
