Broken AEV Pintler

One of my Pintlers developed a hairline crack where the spoke attached to the body of the wheel (obviously not caused by wheeling abuse). AEV has a lifetime structural warranty on their wheels and has replaced the defective wheel.

It's nice to know there are still companies that stand behind their products.

Thanks, AEV.

Re: Broken AEV Pintler

Nice to know AEV is one of the good companies out there.
Strange how that happened, were u towing a heavy load?
Reason i ask is because my dad towed a heavy load one time on his chevy van in the winter, he was trying to get out of a good pile of snow when the tire cracked. over torqued or just weak metal.

Re: Broken AEV Pintler

No towing, but some trail use. A reply to my post on JU implies that I got some old stock, this seems to have been a known issue with AEV's first batch of Pintlers.

Re: Broken AEV Pintler

Sucks that you have to powder coat the new one to match your set. shouldn't they replace all 4 maybe?

I had a powdercoated spare, the replacement is in Argent and is my new spare. If I break any more Pintlers I will have to have the replacements powdered (or see if my powder coater can match Argent).

I really should have just bought Argents to begin with - the color of my armor is very close to Argent and there was no need to custom powder my original wheels.

Mine are a couple years old. You'll know if they go bad, they'll develop a slow leak.
