In Topic: Magnesium Wheel Crack Testing

20 May 2016 - 11:37 AM

I did find a good kit for DIY crack testing using dye when I was considering crack testing my e50, e28 and e14's, but I cant find the link again.

 

I will have a look on my other computers to find it.

Risky though. If they are cracked, you wont get them back.

 

Does that really matter much if they turn out to be cracked? Unless you want to use it as a hose reel or table?

 

 

Have anyone tried this guy?

I have tested a few diferent wheels with a custom 390x36 CL 65 AMG discs and SL 55 8-pots for my old Scirocco. I tried 8,5x19 ET 42 OEM R8 wheels, 9x19 ET 33 S5 Element-5's, Brabus Monoblock IV 9,5x20 ET 37 and BBS RS-GT 9,5x20 ET 36, and the wheels that was the tightest fit, was a the Audi S5 9x19's

Why did you not go wider on the fronts?

 

Theres more space in the front than in the back!
