Buyer Beware, Brentz wheels.

I am in no way attempting to bash Brent's wheels although I do want to bring attention to this issue, as it regards safety.

Anyone who owns a set of Brentz wheels should check their wheels for cracks.

We have a truck (2003 F350 Dually) which one of the front wheels cracked rather severely. The truck has roughly 45,000 miles on the set of 19.5 wheels 8spoke BrentzWheels.
Until now I thought it was just a freak incident. I spoke with a friend yesterday who also bought a set of wheels from Brent (2005 Chevy 3500), both of his front wheels have begun to crack. This truck has about 33,000 miles on the (same design) 8 spoke wheels.

Unfortunately Brent is no longer able to be contacted, so I am unsure of the remedy for these situations.

His website is still intact and I believe he is still in business, but he doesn't answer or return phone calls or emails.

I, as well as my friend with another set of cracked wheels could not contact him.

Also a member on another forum stated he could not contact them either.

His web site says that he is in Dallas,Tx. I'm sure someone in here is around that area and would go into his place.

He's always been really bad about returning calls and e-mails.

He has lost several sales from me because of no return calls.
