Well, the weather's been nice the last few days of March so I decided to swap out the winter tires for the summers... got to the last damn wheel and what do I notice but a gigantic crack on the side of one of the spokes...clear through to the back. :shock:

I'd insert the image into the post but don't have it online, attachments are included for the morbidly curious.

The rim is one of a set of OEM refurbs I bought off ebay in an attempt to have dedicated summers and winters mounted. Well I got one season out of them I guess... :(

If you guys and gals are changing your own tires I highly recommend looking over your wheels... you don't want to find out about a cracked rim when you're accelerating out of an off ramp...

Wow that's scary. Lucky you caught it before rolling on them.

That really sucks. I wonder how long it would've held up had you never noticed.........?
