    Default I'm cracking up

    Not a good day today, thought I had 2 slow punctures no such luck managed to crack 2 wheels probably in the same pot hole. So off the wheels come and on go the polos it came with. Looks like a spot of welding is in order. I know some people don't like welded wheels but I have had some done in the past and they where still fine 50k later. This just means I might as well get the refurbed while they are off

    Sorry to hear about your misfortune matey....not good.

    I have a late 3 series BMW and I'm thankful I'm not running on 19" rims, as you probably may have heard lots of BM owners have had issues with their 19" rims cracking. Owners are blaming the runflat tyres on later models, so the rim takes more of a bashing than usual, and of of course our crap roads dont help either. I'm told its only affected one make of rims and BM have stopped using that supplier.
