We phased out a lot of our GM vans recently, but prior to that it seems we had 50/50 GM/Ford. I have not heard about the Ford rim problem though. started there in a Ford moved into a GM and just moved back into a Ford this year. I am sure our Chevy lovers would have informed me if they heard the rim problem. I do not care what I am in as long as it takes me home when the job is done.
