the PDF is to big to post so here are the instrucions to find everything

http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/defects/defectsearch.cfm

go to nhtsa action number type in EA08003

it should bring up a thing about sevas.... then go to the very bottom and u will see "document search"... click on that... in there, you will see the response sevas sent to nhtsa... it shows how many ppl had problems and where the rims are made etc etc in high detail

I see Harjot Hundal is in there with a claim. Funny how the documents marked "Confidential" are all over that PDF. Also, someones credit card number and expiration date are on a receipt as well. I cant believe with just our forum how many issues there have been with sevas. Glad when I had my 22's I had GFG's! I had bends galore on the inside but never leaked until my ill fated day with road construction. Blew both fronts out. It was nice that I just happened to have all 4 stock wheels in my car because I was selling it that day and after work I was to swap them out!

There are many companies that are having the multi-piece wheels built at the same places. I have the Sevas forged sitting at the shop that came off of the G37. The barrels don't look like any I have seen in person before. Either they actually build there own barrels, or are out sourcing to some china barrels, or a new company.

Am I impressed with what I see, or the build quality of these wheels?:tsk:
