THAT is exactly why I only trust stock production, heavy wheels right there....UNLESS the aftermarket wheels are forged aluminum like RC or PM wheels.... When I used to work in the shops years ago, I saw all kinds of "bad " wheels fail..... Dymag was the most common....CONSTANT cush drive/bearing failures and spoke cracking...... Even $3000 BST carbon fiber wheels will develop weak spots if they are submitted to a lot of ultra violet rays. You rarely hear about Marvics failing but....I still don't trust the drives on them.... I like a big thick hub with big rubber spacers in it... Especially on big power or hard launching bikes...

It just goes to show that ANYTHING can fail at any time.
