Cracked 350 Z wheels danger!!!


Hi Guys,

I am new on here. I have a 6 year old 350Z with 57000 klm on the clock and just found that one of my wheels is cracked. The car is in near perfect condition with one prior owner 18 months ago... so i am 2nd owner.

Having worked in the auto industry for Lotus cars.. i know about wheels and wanted to get your story on cracked 350z wheels... if there is any.

I am shocked by the crack and am thinking there should have been a recall on this problem...as they should not crack at 6 years old and only 57K on the clock.

Called dealer... he says yep had loads of 350Z's with cracked wheels.

Called Nissan Australia.... not interested and said your problem... and we have not any cracked wheels so no recall

Anyone else had the problem? I am not bothered about the $1200 its cost me its just that my girl was driving the car and the dealer said it could have killed her if it had gone.

The only issue with the 350Z and cracked wheels involves OEM wheels that local dealerships had aftermarket chrome plating performed.

Yeah, I've never heard of a cracked rim on a 350Z that wasn't user-inflicted.

Understeer is when you hit the tree with the front wheel.
Oversteer is when you hit it with the back.
Horsepower is how hard you hit the tree...
Torque is how far you drag it...

Just found out that one of the wheels on my 2004 350z is cracked. Not chrome, just the regular powder-coat gray. Any have any experience with the wheels like aly62414u20n or aly62414u20 at automotix dot net? Know if they look exactly like Nissan or even ARE the same wheels?
