    alloy wheel cracked

    I unfortuantly discovered that one of the brand new alloys which had only been on for around 7 weeks had cracked all around the centre cap and into the stud holes.





    Rubbish pics but the cracks are visiable.

    I've contacted the retailer who've seen these pictures and they are saying that those cracks were casued when fitting

    "If a socket catches the edge of the bolt hole during fitting this can damage the wheel and the paintwork."

    Is it just me or does that seem like complete BS?

    Its bollocks, a wheel doesnt crack because because of damage by a socket when fitting. If thats all that had happened then you would expect to see scuffed paint worked or rounded indents into the metal not cracking like that. Try contacting Team Dynamics direct.

    I smell very strong bs mate...

    Dont let this one lie, get down there with the alloy and go crackers...

    By law that alloy must meet BS1474, this is industry standard for aluminium, either way you would have to be heman to brake that by tightening the bolts up..

    Could have killed you that mate, I wouldn't let it lie anyway!

    You've not hit anything hard or anythin have you, like a kerb?
    I dont want to be a product of the enviroment.

    I want the enviroment to be a product of me...
