    found right front rim broken today.
    (2 years old Cragar Nomad II steel/chrome 15x10 6lug)
    Changed from 35 BF AT (balanced) to 35 Kelly Safari QTR (unbalanced) last week, having less vibration now.
    Checked rims carefully when changing, can't remeber any hard hit since. Running at 38 psi at present.
    Any suggestion why it broke???
    Ever heard of Cragar rims being weak???

    It's a long shot, but...
    Give Cragar a call. They might be interested to find out why the wheel broke too. Who knows...if you butter them up enough, you may get a new wheel on their dime!!

    Did YOU change the tire or did someone else? The operator of the changing machine could have tweaked something. Where is it broken? Bead? Center?
