I can get a set of EB S 5 spoke wheels but...

I have to get them fracture tested :( Anyone know where I can get it done?

Story is the wheels were on an EB that completed 2 seasons of off road rally racing. I can get them pretty cheap but since their life was about 20,000km of racing with things like hitting potholes at 160 + i need to get them checked before I can buy them. Mainly for peace of mind for me and the seller. They are dirt cheap and are in fairly good condition.

So i'm assuming X-Ray would be the only way to check them?

Re: I can get a set of EB S 5 spoke wheels but...

yeh x-ray is the way that they are checked

one of the ROH rims on that i had on my EA had a hairline fracture in it, ROH took all the wheels and x-rayed them to make sure that none of the others did as well. They then replaced the damaged one and we were all happy!

maybe you could contact someone like ROH and see if they can advise you of someone that does it???
