    Depends how they are used. I have had 19" snowflakes on all four of my cars, 2 Vectra's and 2 Signums, do 30,000 miles a year and never had one cracked rim.

    If you go driving over kerbs etc, you will have problems.

    But mine have neen fine.

    Definately looks like the owners obviously hits curbs.

    They look like they have taken a beating.

    Also people never post how good there wheels are, you only hear about things when they go wrong. And this tends to stick in your mind.
