A wheel failure like that has to be some kinda manufacturing/materials/design defect. I've NEVER seen a wheel break like that before. Ever.

Damn.
I have to agree. I would definately be making some phone calls and sending some pics.

Don't allow Nissan to keep the wheel either

If they replace it they keep it.

Kinda scary yah, but it doesn't make all Nissans or Sentras bad.

I wonder about the car, balancing, and overinflation on that wheel.

there is absolutely no question AT ALL that the wheel was defective, if there was tire damage, then there could have been another fault, but with no substantial tire damage, that wheel is 100% without question defective

What caused the defect though is my point? Bad materials sent through Nissan, something that happened in shipping etc. If we hear of more of these, then it'* definitely a design error.

Maybe demand a 3rd party shop checks out the others for stress, small cracks, etc.

Werd. One case isn't enough to talk up Bonneville or the domestic set in general. If what people are saying in this thread rings true, What do UIM/LIM and transmission failures say about us?

A disintegrating UIM is a lot less likely to kill you than a disintegrating wheel.
