Complaint - Wheels

REAR RIMS FAILED AT HIGHWAY SPEED AFTER HITTING A SMALL OBJECT, SIMILAR TO A SMALL TREE BRANCH. THE LEFT REAR RIM WAS COMPLETELY RUINED AND INSTANTLY CAUSED THE TIRE TO DEFLATE, SIMILAR TO A BLOWOUT. THE "RING" OF THE RIM, ON WHICH THE TIRE IS MOUNTED, SEPARATED FROM THE FLAT CIRCLE THE GETS BOLTED ONTO THE AXEL ASSEMBLY. THE RIGHT REAR WAS DAMAGED ENOUGH TO REQUIRE REPLACEMENT, ACCORDING TO THE DEALER, ALTHOUGH I COULD NOT SEE ANY DAMAGE. (BECAUSE OF WORK HOURS, I WAS NEVER ABLE TO TALK TO THE DEALER'S REP IN PERSON.) THE CAR HAD NOT BEEN IN ANY SERIOUS INCIDENTS PRIOR TO ACCIDENT. THE DEALER AND AUDI CUSTOMER RELATIONS BOTH CLAIMED IT WAS A NON-WARRANTEE ITEM.
