Not hating on anything, just want people to be aware and make a safe sound decision, that's why my OP said, "Not sure if this has been posted here (something like that)." Any car can be destroyed in a crash caused by catastrophic wheel failure.

Could be knock off/remakes...not defending just saying. The finish looks a little shotty. There are a ton of Advan and Volk knock offs with actual markings in so-called original packaging that are popping up everywhere. Can't be 100% that those are actual Volks.

Lame a$$ excuse. Why doesn't this happen to quality wheel companies like Enkei, Mackin Industries or Yokohama?
if you search you will find Enkei and Volks getting cracks from tracks.
