What was their explanation of the failure? I mean, they didn't just say "we'll replace them" right? Surely the owner wants to know what the cause of this failure was, and why he won't experience them on the next set...

really glad your friend is OK, I never gave into the hype about these new companies popping out of no where. I would demand a refund vs a replacement.

Man why even bother with replacement?? Just get the refund from them if possible. That is just not safe to put on your car. And those wheels cost $10k...why?
I'd rather save couple thousand dollars and get HRE.

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.

I'll see if Pyspeed can help out with a refund

If you're an "A" student in engineering school, you get hired at HRE.
If you're a "C-" student, you go to AVD.1

It is true that everyone and their mother now has a wheel company. Sad fact is that most of these new companies source the same china made cores and barrels so most of them will bend and crack the same way. I've noticed how so many used wheels for sale on this forum are bent or was bent as some point. I am talking about 5-6-7K wheels here and these are cali cars. The term "forged" has been grossly misused in the wheel industry. Throw the word in their name and everyone is fine with paying 7K+ for a set of wheels thinking they are strong but to only find out they aren't forged at all or only part of it is.

Top of the line wheels back in the day use to be in the 4-5K range which was expensive. Now companies are asking 8-10K for some wheels which is ridiculous.

hiding. ADV.1 is the most pathetic wheel company Ive ever come across seriously. From 360Forge to this shit, the ppl there have such a thick face its unbelievable the shit they claim and their pride goes further than their scams.

I would demand a full fucking refund and then some. Especially when kids life are involved. Imagine the fucking wheel fell apart at highway speeds with his kids in the car. I'd want some mother fuckers dead if that happened. Absofuckinglutly pathetic. Re-blogging to Asian car blogs.

I just think about all the folks here alone that have ADV wheels. Id probably be taking them off right about now. I think these guys are done in our community.

Eugene the reason for the delay was the part was backordered from the supplier. There was nothing we could do (or any other company for that matter) to get the part any sooner. Here is the official update on your order as it's progressed:

2/8: Supplier confirmed 22x2.5 4 weeks b/o and all other parts in stock
3/15: Received (2) 22x2.5 outers from Supplier and sent outers to finish

For the normal crew stating we suck, our product isn't forged, etc... The step lip cracked, and the step lip is from the same supplier that everyone else in the industry uses. So lets stop the quality hating right there because it's not an ADV.1 specific part failure. It could've (and does) happen to every wheel company when you produce any product in volume.

Beyond that this set was originally purchased in 2010. And this is not directed at Eugene or anyone specifically and simply part of being in the wheel industry for any wheel company - we don't know what our end users do, what roads they drive on, or how careful they are. The truth is there are some awful big potholes in the world. We've had customers ruin entire sets of wheels because they got drunk and went off roading in their 7-series... we can't protect against reckless drivers, and these wheels aren't brand new - but have been used for over a year.

Regardless - we've already taken steps to replace this wheel outside of it's warranty period to stand behind the product but a backordered part is a backordered part and that was the cause for the delay in getting a new lip out to him to fix the issue.

To me, a good wheel should bend (a lot) long before there is any visable material failure. These wheels suck.

Also, we've looked into the matter further with the supplier and apparently there was a small batch of isolated failures associated with an improper heat cycle during the forging process that affected a small run of 22" step lips. The supplier is writing up a statement to share with you all on the issue.

we all know that every one is on the jock of adv1, maybe its time to pass the word around " other forums " that his wheels are cracking because the lack of engineering. The problem with the wheels is that the bolt circle on the center and the bolt circle on the barrels doesn't match, the bolts go in at an angle causing the in and outer sections to flex and eventually crack. Adv1 was informed by their parts manufacturer that this was a big problem and would cause BIGGER problems and decided to let it go in hopes that it was an isolated incident. Apparentley not from these pics...
