Busted Wheel

I was out washing my truck last night when I noticed the lip on my Centerline Blackfoot wheel was bulging out. After further investigation, the wheel is totally cracked and useless. I'm sure Centerline will warranty it, it's only 10mths old, but what can I do until then. Does anyone know if wheel shops will give out a loaner wheel until my new one comes in? Luckily I saw it last night when I was washing my rig, bucause I had a long trip to the lake scheduled for today. Should I be worried about the others doing the same thing. I've got a Donahoe 7" lift and I would hate to lose a front wheel haulin *** down the freeway

Either a manufacturer defect, or ya hit a bump too hard. Look over the others real close, but if you don't see anymore cracks and the tires are holding air I wouldn't worry about 'em.

funny thing is the busted one is still holding air. I'm the only one who drives the truck and never hit a damn thing. I've always had Weld Wheels and since they're not really around anymore I thought I'd go with Centerline, and look how that worked out. I was looking at the KMC Hoss wheels in Black. Think they are a better wheel?

4 weeks and still no replacement wheel. Great customer sevice. My truck is worthless sitting on a jack stand and they could care less. Last I heard they built the wrong wheel and have to start all over. What a joke. If I knew it was going to take several months for 1 damn wheel, I would've just bought 4 new ones from someone else. Never again

not sure what state you live in but the tire store that does all my lifts and tires and wheels would without a doubt hook you up with a loaner, i use to work for these guys (les shwab) and if your local biz is anything compared to this place you wont have a problem getting a loaner till the POS company gets you one. the wheel would be a ****ty yard wheel but it would get your truck off the jacks lol

if you live in the western states hit me up and i can probly hook you up, i stay in touch with them often (getting a lift on my PS job on Thur)
