2003 Volkswagen Passat Q&A
2003 Volkswagen Passat Question: Rim "blew"
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/ - patrick mannion
