Geez, I don't know what they expect with those wheels. They look pretty weak to begin with.

This.

By cheap I meant cheaply built. If the guy spent $4k it makes him even more of an idiot. Educate yourself and do your homework before you buy parts so you don't buy stuff that can kill you

Oh look, another US wheel company with broken wheels, I am sooooooooo shocked... The funny part is ADV1 is trying to sell wheels in that thread over at nagtroc now. Someone should ask them about their TUV certification over there.

Not trying to sell wheels at all in that thread. ADV.1 was brought up so I was trying to clear up some facts for people that asked. No different than what anyone else would do in that position.

These are a $1500 set of wheels, regardless of what the maker wants to charge for them. Fact. I would not spend over $1000 for them. Just not worth it.

I dont put any stock into wheels just because they are hi-priced..its about proven standards of manufacturing..only a handful of companies produce wheels of high quality.

Found these pretty funny from their FB page. Posted around 9 PM on 10/24. The also offered a "statement" regarding the Mustang incident. So you're not supposed to use their wheels during "competitive events" but you still post them being used in that manner?...
