I think she broke the wheel with her bare hands, just to prove that she can.

Did you drive it for a while and then another crack? Or when she gave it back to you, there was still a crack?

No no, when I got the wheel, it was re-welded but then I see a new crack at the weld. I was like..WTF? Thanks for making another crack...

They redid it though, it's all fine now

Interesting... that's the same issue I had - a 1 cm crack became a 25 cm crack (really! ) and they removed metal along the lip of trhe wheel for some reason also. I still have that wheel in my backyard.

The owner's wife told me they got rid of the "new guy" that did my wheel as he screwed up other's also. Still, it's obvious they didn't have a proper quality control dept. to check what they are actually shipping back to customers.

got my 20's back: 1 was bent in a few places, 1 was cracked and bent and the last 2 were slightly bent. They did an amazing job and they're located in the GTA- Precision all the way.
