Upgrading tires from "E" to "G" rated and got a call from my tire guy stating the wheels on the driver side of my 2016 Wildcat 327 CK have cracks through spokes! So thankful this was discovered as I can only imagine the devastation if there was a complete failure at 65 mph on highway...I am awaiting a call back from manufacturer HiSpec to see if there is a recall, but want to make others aware so you can inspect your wheels.

Glad it was caught before something really ugly happening.

From what I understand, HiSpec just copies other brands. When you don't have to go through the pains of r&d yourself you miss things.

I have HiSpec wheels on my 2013 Forest River Flagstaff TT that have an inferior finish. I attempted to call HiSpec & also emailed them as well about the issue & never received a call back nor email reply. I spoke to the HiSpec distributor that Forest River uses & was told I would need to get in touch with HiSpec. So, don't expect any support from HiSpec!
