Cracked Vossen CV3: How bad is this??

Noticed this while cleaning my wheels today. I knew about the curb rash but the crack is something I hadnt noticed before.



That is one of the spokes of my cv3 front wheels. Then inspecting other wheels I noticed another two have things like this



Is this something to be concerned about?

I would be very concerned about this and contact the seller or wheel manufacturer to see what they think. If it were just the wheel with the curb scuff they might try to blame it on you hitting a curb but the second pic doesn't look like you scrubbed a curb with it.

Bottom line, it looks like a safety/warranty issue to me.

Yeah on other wheels there is no curb scuffs but the little small crack-like lines are around the spokes. Like 2 out of 5 spokes in two wheels have the look of the last picture.

If you still have your stock wheels get them on immediately. If not have your car towed to a garage.

Whatever you do, I strongly, strongly advise you not to drive the car until you have new wheels on it.

That crack is bad. Very bad. It could give way just sitting there.

He purchased the wheels, used, from an individual, with the curb rash and cracks. There is no warranty for them anymore.

To me, it does not look like a safety problem. I doubt the wheel will ever even start to separate anymore unless you maybe hit a big pot hole or a similar object that causes lots of impact to your wheel. I can't imagine the wheel would just completely fail as your driving down the road, no matter what speed your going.

Sucks man. Seems like a perfect instance of "you get what you pay for".

I would not drive on that. It looks like a catastrophic failure waiting to happen.

Crappy casting or maybe counterfeits?

Just contacted Diego from Vossen. They will gladly swap the damaged wheels. Tomorrow morning Im going to the shop for the swap. Their have a lifetime warranty for structural damage.so I will end having 3 wheels replaced. They rock!!!

FYI when I bought the wheels the nasty crack wasn't there.

Good job! Congrats!

If you are driving your car to the shop, however, be VERY, VERY careful. Drive slow, turn slow, brake easy.

I would still consider having your car flat bedded to the shop. That crack is very dangerous, no matter what other people tell you. You have no idea if or when it could give way.

Don't be surprised if they say they are warranted to the original owner for life. Might ask for the sales slip. If not you got a good deal.
