    Another cracked wheel

    Well, I got it fixed for the cool price of one crisp $100 bill. I took the car out, got it up to speed and as soon as I hit 88 mph the wheel turned into a pumpkin! Craziest thing you've ever seen!! No wait, I'm getting stories mixed together. That didn't happen at all. The rim is functioning...

    2015 Model S - Trunk Won't Open When Approached From Behind

    And that design, of not allowing the charge port door to open when you come directly to it, was stupid. I'd like to meet the person responsible for that decision and smack the piss out of him.

    Heat treat cast aluminum? Lol. This is a legitimate business. Not some crackhead in a back alley.

    No. It's really not. It may crack again around the weld but the wheel isn't going to just magically turn into a pumpkin while I'm driving.

    They claim it was damage from a pothole. But I haven't hit any. There's no other visible damage to the wheel, not even curb rash and the tire isn't damaged either. It's a BS cop out. I'd fight it but it's not worth my time. Just pay for it to be fixed and move on.

    Yeah. I do. Can't be any worse than the POS wheels that come on it. It's just aluminum. The worst that will happen is that it would crack again. Big deal.

    Carbon Ceramic Brakes

    Is anyone really looking at these for the braking performance?? I thought everyone was wanting these for the decreased rotational mass.

    I've only got 25k on my car. They refused to replace mine. This is clearly a design flaw.

    I talked to the local Porsche dealer who we use for my wife's Cayenne Turbo. They hooked me up with a local guy who does wheel repairs. $150 including remounting and balancing. Can't beat that!! They said their customers use this guy all the time and he does great work.

    Add me to the list of people who have a cracked 21" wheel. I've never hit anything hard with my car. No curbs, no potholes. The tire and rim are pristine except where this crack developed. $1150 for a new wheel. Seems like there's almost enough of us for a class action suit.

    Carbon Fiber Rims

    As mentioned above, it's the toe that really eats the tires. Much more than the camber.
