Matt,

1. You understand there are literally hundreds of TUV, SAE, JWL/VIA certifications out there and companies don't need the one from ADV.1 to copy it right?

2. That is not a TUV certification. That is a certificate of conformity. You should know the difference. A TUV certificate specifies a wheel has been tested, has passed, and has been registered/certified by TUV-Rheinland. It also certifies a wheel to an specific vehicle only which is why is so expensive.

A certificate of conformity is the manufacturer certifying that the products, in this case, wheels, have been tested to an specific standard (SAE/JWL/VIA or even your own) and the manufacturer signs and attests that to be true and valid. Your statement is misleading.

This a TUV Certificate:

and for EVERY wheel, not just ONE wheel.
Each design needs to be certified

From what I understand, each size has to be tested too?
I think that's what Paintpro was saying about the Forgstar's on the first page.

I had a set of HRE 441Rs on my old E46 M3 many years ago, and one of my rear rims cracked under normal use.
It was a big eye opener.

Damn.... good info.... and very interesting...... you slapped them down harder than my girl slapped me down last night after i asked for sexy time......

on a more serious note, this is very important information and definatly makes me think long and hard about my wheel manufacturer choice...., i usually stick with BBS, but they are usually alittler heavier than the japaneese brands....... i think my oem CSLs weight in @ 25lbs for the 9.5-19" rim.

I hope someone makes:
JWL, VIA and SAE certified wheel model/company list and mod sticky them just like wheel weight or rub/norub threads.

Just a thought.

dont respond to me, respond to everyone else. and it shouldn't take ANY time for you guys to come up with the response. In my book, you already lost my business, no matter how you guys decide to respond.
