Freightliner XCM Chassis

Recommended Posts

This post is to advise anyone with Freightliner Chassis that has Trlangle Slotted Aluminum Wheels to check their rear tire inboard valve stems. They may have come loose from the rubber stabilizer and make contact with outboard wheel. This will cause the valve stem extension to wear on wheel and tire deflation is likely.

If you’ve had this issue, please contact Freightliner to see if involved in recall. If you have issue and being told not involved, Please contact the NHTSA website and follow instructions to file a complaint!

Is there an actual recall, or do we just contact Freightliner Custom Chassis?

  I had the same issue.  Mine rubbed through at the extension thread so it did not leak until I put on the TPMS system and it leaked through the hole.  I replaced the extension and now check on a regular basis to make sure the rubber stabilizer has not moved.  There is still the issue of the valve stem not being bent to the correct position which is creating this issue to begin with.

It appears to be a recall on some but not all...typical Freightliner.  I would call them!
