Aug 2011 Cracked rim warranty?

Post by upstate ny » Fri Jul 13, 2018 4:21 pm

I think this thread got lost...

update, Spoke to Gene/Hollopaw. Dealers can get the warranty extended. Rochester is the closest one to me, over 150 miles. I'll contact Ural, send pics, and see if something can be worked out to where they ship the parts to my local guy for a rebuild.

And I was off on the price for a complete wheel. The $625 one is for newer rigs, for a complete new wheel it's more in the $350 range, and they are less prone to cracking now with a new supplier. $160ish for rim only.

Thanks for all the replies...I did see them!

Old complete wheel is for 2012? $350.

What years does the "new wheel" begin?

RC20- Good question about the when did they switch suppliers.

The problems did seem to stop with the new supplier, so made the way they mark their rims is different? He did kinda dismiss the theory that they were torquing the spokes to tight after the steel to aluminum transition.
