So if it's a "raw material" failure then that brings into question the quality of the forgings they use to manufacture any of their wheels, especially if it's true they said "no promise it won't happen again"
. If the wheel is properly designed, analyzed, and manufactured from a quality forging I would not expect to see such a large "net" section and/or bearing failure of the inner barrel ring/flange.
Eugene I definitely agree with creaminz and I'd ask for a refund because, IMO, it's a huge safety issue to run these wheels on the street. Good luck in getting this matter resolved.
