    Q: Are your wheels DOT approved?
    A: They have passed every D.O.T. test including: (a) Radial Fatigue Standard test is 2.5 million cycles ours passed 5 million (B) Cornering Fatigue 1.2 million cycles © Radial impact testing (this is the one that everyone worries about) our wheel exceeded the impact test by 60KG which has never been done before. (d) A repeat of A, B, C with low profile tire... this test not required by JWL or BSAU (e) Additional impact on unsupported inner flange without tire ( no wheel has ever passed this before our wheel) (f) CASS test environmental chamber designed to add age to the wheel (g) Repeat A, B, C on wheel post CASS test After all testing the wheel was pressure tested to assure no micro cracks This wheel compared to the Z06 wheel was twice as strong and held up better in impact testing then the Z06 wheels and we did it without the center spokes we also did all the same testing once again with only 1 support bolt in each spoke rather then the normal 2

    Go for it B... after all your stock rims were "curbed" (aka lightly scratched and not anywhere near noticable unless your eyes are touching the rim)... :ph34r:

    stronger sure, and badass.

    I'd worry about one scratch causing a stress crack and ruining a $1500 wheel. Any compound that hard is bound to break, but it needs a place to start.

    Im thinkin that if a guy spent that much money on a set of those rims, those bitches would be track only. Thats the way I would do it anyways.

    I'm thinking if someone had 6 grand to blow on rims, he wouldn't be to put out by breaking one.

    I would truely not be surprised if my dad bought a set for his.

    $6000 for rims on a $60,000 car > $2000 on a $3000 car.
