I really believe rim life is down to air pressure and ...wait for it.

You do realise that with cast wheels, they just completely fail without showing much in the way of outward signs of damage?

I distinctly remember reading 2 cases of fatalities here over the years due to this.

Also, most wreckers wont sell cast wheels off write offs, for cars or bikes. Because they look perfect one minute, and come apart at speed the next.

If you stop posting suddenly I'll assume the worst.
