I bought my 2005 new, and 448K later I'm happy with it... but I just bought two 2008 3500s, and I have two wheels that are leaking air through tiny holes inside the rim at the weld. Has anyone else had this problem?

What now we have rust pin holes in the rim LOL
If there is a break in the welds of the rim where air is-escaping, then the rims will ultimately fail with aging and split under load.
Whops there go's another Sprinter or two.
Thats a warranty replacement and possibly a National recall:hmmm: if the fault is factory originated. Mind you could slime slime it. No more leaks.
