Broken wheel

I check tire condition every time we stop. Didn't expect to find a broken wheel. Drove 80 more miles, changed it out tonight at campground.

Wow if I seen that I'd have change it right there, that was quite the risk to carry on especially knowing about it, just my two cents but I am a licensed mechanic.

That is scary. All the posts about China bomb tires but I would have not considered an actual wheel failure. Now I have another item to add to my check list for every rest stop and overnight stops.
Glad you made the additional miles without a fatal wheel failure.


Love my Wildcat 295RSX!

Uh..the wheels are made in china, too!

If its not still under warranty this is where I bought my exact match wheel for my spare.

Wow! Thank the good Lord for your safety!
Wouldn't the spoke be the strongest section of a wheel?
If you get an explaination of the cause of the break, please share it with us.
Maybe Tireman9 can enlighten us?
Travel safe

No explanation yet. Lugnuts were equally tight. Figured it had been broken for a while before I saw it. Checked it a couple more times in last few miles before change out.
