Yep...I had the same thing happen. I called and happened to get Mark on the phone. They did the same thing for me....brand new set of pre-mounts showed up a few days later.

It is nice to find companies that still understand the concept of customer support. Seems like it's a lost art sometimes.

I e-mailed Mark and he offered to replaced all my cracked premounts. Amazing service.

I couldn't care less if AKA had the worst service out there I would still buy their tires. I love their tires it's all I run other then Calibers because I was having a hard time getting AKA. It just makes it so much better that they have great service.

My only question is, why not build a better rim?

Many people in our series who are running 1/8 Buggy have the some complaint about the AKA wheels.

I have run the AKA, JC, ProLine wheels and thus far only the AKA have this issue for me. So for now I buy the AKA tires and just mount them on PL rims
