    Default snowflakes

    ive had my 2006 vecky now 4 years and always thought about putting on a set of 19inch snowflakes,last week i fount a pretty bad write up on them about how the are prone to cracks and air line fractures even on the smallest of pot holes,and people who have put them on have fount the car is really awful to handle and the road noise was a lot louder,i relay would love a set but dont know now after reading this,anybody out there who have fitted have this sort of trouble

    thanks
