Here is pics of my wheels 22" Eco Evo
hvac911...your brakes!...they look so...... SO SMALL!...LOL
my wheels....my brakes....my X....
well I talked to a few guys who are experts and they said they have never seen a wheel do that before. All I did was go thru a puddle, I didnt bounce, I wasnt airborne, there was no pothole.. I guess the rims just suck
Were they aluminum? As you know, aluminum is brittle and I've cracked the stock 15-inch stock "teardrop" aluminum wheel before -- but that was after sliding around in a mild Rochester, NY snow storm.
BTW, looking at the crack, if that wheel is indeed cast aluminum, that looks a little on the thin side. If you think its poor design, maybe try contacting DOT/NHTSA
Sorry I havent posted pics of mine, but you can check them out here.
Rubyslow that is the scariest thing I have ever seen, and hvac does have small brakes. lol Other than that nice looking wheels you guys. Keep em coming. Big tire small wheels and thin tire big wheels, which look better??
Off topic who did you air bags? And thanks for the comment on the wheels and I know the dics look small but there stock no kits to up grade with out major modications.
The front was done by Master Image Customs and the rear was done by my buddy at Rowdy Customs. I would like to go lower in the rear but i dont want to cut through the floor and ruin my system. Still needs a lot of work
I could post pics of my stock "deerhoof" rims, but I am sure you all know what they are like.
I thought it was from them hitting the curb/wall when you lost control. Isn't that where the damage come from on your bumper?
Yeah--looking at the tire-it hit something hard and grey.It's scuffed right where the wheel is broken.
Things hide in puddles.
That broken wheel is scary, most of these wheels don't rate enough for the trucks.
