BMW owners among you have probably been watching a story broken by BBCs Watchdog regarding an unusually large incidence of cracking in their 19” alloys installed in run-flat tyres.
If you are worried about this, or have experienced it, we highly recommend reading the Watchdog article and its update on BMW offering to pay for replacement of some cracked alloys.
Remember that with all alloy cracking of all types, you should always replace and not repair. Diamond Alloys does not repair cracked wheels because if a weld breaks it could result in fatalities. Even if the wheel gets welded to repair the crack, this can sometimes break if it is not strong enough and we consider this an unacceptable risk to our clients.
