    Vehicle : Signum

    Trim : Design

    Engine : 1.9 CDTi

    Year : 2005

    Default Cracked alloys other than 'Snowflakes'

    Have any other alloys suffered cracks as much as the 19" snowflake alloys?

    We get alloys in with cracks now and again but most of the time its the 19" snowflake alloys.

    The 18" and 19" vxr wheels can also crack, But not as much.
    I suppose any alloy wheel could crack if hit hard enough.
