Lawyers don't command... they only make suggestions.

COR - as well as any other business - can do as they wish to.

Well you could argue "Cause and affect" . The inferior wheel broke causing the damage that occured to the vehicle. Or your limited liability warrantee will state the wheel will be replaced but not the damage that occured due to the failure.
On your second comment you can never prove a tire failed causing a accident without the manufacture knowing tire pressure and conditions.
The bottomline is we are spending high dollars on products that we are led to believe are far superior then OEM for a particular application or applications.

Default Play nice?

There is only one person in this thread that is not playing nice. Apparently he can't even carry on a civil conversation. Instead he expresses his opinions accompanied by slinging foreshortened expletives and insults. No place for that on the forum. This is supposed to be a forum dedicated to intelligent discourse and exchange of ideas and opinions. Thus far in this thread things have been taken way over the top to the point of bordering on psychotic ranting.

That's true, if they were willing to let their liability insurance carrier cancel their policy.

in the first five seconds of seing the failed wheel i thought there was just not enough material there. also the way all the spokes appear to have just snapped screams WEAK !
To dave concrete i have always thought the opposite oe wheels can take a hit and most aftermarket wheels are for looks.
If a company is selling wheels for a performance car they should be able to handle ANY dot tire on streat or track. these wheals just look like toothpicks.
AND if a company is selling wheels for performance cars and there website is full of race cars with slicks :-) think i will stay out of s.w. ont
