When it comes to counterfeiting and replicating, it is never right to sell or to purchase them. It may come across as a good decision when you are offered a lower price for an item that looks exactly like the genuine and original product. However, we all know that looks can be deceiving. Some of us may have to experience it firsthand to believe it, but if you can take this information in, you will be better prepared in a purchase decision.
Would you be okay with a store selling you counterfeit designer branded products? What about if it’s a fragrance? You wouldn’t be happy about that, and you definitely wouldn’t be happy with the product. When it comes to car parts, it is the same concept. Except, when you purchase car parts, there is a technology that goes behind it, the material used to manufacture it, and the process behind forging the wheel. So, if a factory decides to take the appearance of the wheel, and replicate it, they are disregarding the material being used, and the process of forging the wheel. So in reality, you do get a wheel that looks just like the actual thing, but is of a much lower quality.
What does a lower quality wheel mean for you? That means your wheels are more prone to being dent, bent, cracked, and broken. Having a dent will eventually lead to air leaks, even if slowly. That means your wheel will be imbalanced both due to the dents and air leakage. This makes it more dangerous to drive, as your vehicle will no longer go straight when it should be going straight. This is unfixable. Additionally, having a cracked wheel simply means you’d have to replace it. You may experience that your replica wheels crack very often leading to you having to spend more and more money on getting them replaced. Additionally, if your wheel cracks on the road, your tire can too be shredded and you can easily lose control of the car.
So if you are thinking about buying wheels from EUDM Autosports? Think again.
