    Default Nearly bought some snowflakes :(

    Well put a bid in for these after asking the seller many questions about the condition of the wheels. Went to collect them yesterday and 3 of the rims were cracked and one of the cracked rims had 2 dents in as well. The faces were also a lot worse than the pics make out.

    So just to make you aware guys try and avoid these wheels.

    the number of pics and threads about cracked snowflakes... worrying isn't it? must be a design flaw!

    I thought it was the 19" VXR rims that suffered cracks, not seen any threads on snowflakes cracking, they are made by a different company..

    That's a shame mate. You really never know what people are trying to sell you

    Better luck next time though
