Truck Was In The Shop..

Well took the truck to the shop today.. It had been in there since 8:30 this moring and well its 5:30 and i finally got it.. OK well i had a clicking noise in the front end and well i was kinda worried about it so i took it in.. they looked and looked and could not find what the noise was at all. until they called for head quarteres and this is what they said word for word.."Customer states clicking Noise from front end, Advise DIAG, Found over sized tires casueing the chrome cladding on the rim to make wheel pop when driving contacted ford hotline on issue... So what they are saying is since i have the factory wheels the chrome peaiece cant handle the wieght that the tires have on them which is causing them to click against the rim.. This still does not make since to me.. will someone make some light of this.. Ohh and by the way Thankes to josh he hooked me up with the right guy at the service depot.. thankes bro

excuse me? BS! what chrome cladding? You talking the chrome plastic wheel covers they put on those trucks? No way the tires caused that.

Use a different dealer because that is a bunch of BS.

wait actually think about this. doesnt the chrome come to the lip of the rim...

he is BFG tires with rim guard that goes over the lip... if there is side wall flex it could pop the chrome lip on the cover

the chrome piece is a hubcap? if so it makes sense. lots of vehicles have clicking sounds coming from hubcaps everytime they hit a bump in the road. it is due to tire flex in most cases as stated above

its only stuck to the rim with glue on the spokes not the edges so that could be doing it just enough to make noices

it is not glue.they are clips that when you push they click on.if one of the clips are broke it will make noise.
