Unhappy

Heading home from Lake of the Ozarks. Not sure if I have posted here or not in the past. Cracked the trucks left front wheel on the way home. 16.5 wheels are no longer made. A new look soon on the truck.

Are those Weld wheels? If so I did the same thing to one of mine and buddy of mine lost his off his Dodge on the freeway. Front wheel too.

The crack was internal and just caused the tire to go flat on the down side of I40 from Flagstaff. New one piece wheels and tires on order. 3 16.5x8 Weld wheels and 4 33x12.5x16.5 tires BFG's if anyone is interested. I wouldn't want them though.

I am sorry to say I am not surprised. I always thought Weld was the best made wheels so I paid the extra expense for them. Well after cracking two seperate sets and loosing the chrome on three other sets I am done with Weld Wheels. I went through 5 sets of Welds in 6 years so my tire shop said find another wheel for obvious reasons. It wasn't too bad for me in the short term, I was getting a new set of wheels every year except for the frustration and lack of confidence in them.

The bigger problem was finding a good replacement.......

It's always for sale, lol, not really. I was looking at the 25's, but a little rich for me right now, plus people are giving their 2's away. Funny, how people compare a loaded 2 (Mine) to one with half the stuff and expect the same price. So looks like I will have to slum it for awile.
