Rim was tested twice. And not visually , technology is the only way to trust , when your life depends on.

If you hit it hard enough you woud see a buckle. The cast wheels are very soft and buckle easily.
As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everybody is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.

No Tom it was not a hard hit more like pushing hard a soft tire against a sharp edge.
