The early R65 18" snowflakes didn't have the webbing, but weren't recalled. And for the record, the 19" were probably just fine except for a very few that developed a few cracks near the hub, but didn't fall apart or break in two. I've gotten bikes with them still mounted and running fine twenty plus years later. My brother replaced the one on his RS that had over 100K and it wasn't cracked or falling apart in any way.
