This is a warning to all of those considering to purchase a set of cheap rims. Depending on the manufacturer, some rims may not be to spec. This is an example, a very dangerous example of what can happen to cheap rims. Please becareful while modding your car and be safer than sorry.

I hope none if you were going to purchase a set of ADR Jazz. This is what happened when a guy hit a small pothole going about 80 km/h and the Rim snapped in half.

This thread is what made me stay away from ADR. ( The link no longer works due to excessive views sorry)

What is your opinion on ASA rims? They are relatively cheap, but are they known for good quality?

Wow and he only hit a pothole at 80kmh? Last time I seen a rim bust like that I was doing about 100kmh in my Focus and caught 6 feet of air. Also drove my shock tower through my hood but on the plus side the rim only had a chunk out of it. Wasn't destroyed as much as this one.

I have yet to hear of a problem with them except for finishes/clearcoat coming off.

Since I originally found that post I have seen other ADR wheels that have succomd to this same problem. It's something to do with the casting problems.

I think their technology is licensed by BBS.
