What safety issue? People spread propaganda about supposedly inferior products all the time. These type of failures are a boon for the people selling similar products.

"Oh my rim broke"
"That's because you have cheap imitation rims and not our superior quality rims"

Crap crap crap crap.

I see impact damage on all but the first and last ones, and the shots were probably taken so you can't see it. 18"+ rims damage more easily because there is less rubber between it and the impact.

thats chinese rims for you they do it all the time even with small impacts IE running off the seal into gravel and back on.its another one of those you get what you pay for scenarios good quality rims will take curbs at 50+kmh and stay pretty intact

always had copies, execpt for the SSVs I have on now, never had a single problem, maybe that's because I didn't go sideways into a gutter.....
Wheelking always been expensive in my eyes, never even considered buying off them due to that.
