This Is What Happens If You Use Fake Wheels On Your Car

Testing

That looks dangerous. REALLY dangerous.

Nice wheels make our cars look better and we all want them. However, nice wheels are expensive and people often buy non-genuine wheels for an identical look for cheaper. However, how dangerous are fake wheels? That’s what Mercedes Benz Australia wanted to show. The video first shows how to tell fake wheels from real ones. Next, the testing team had two CLA shooting brakes, one with genuine wheels and the other with fakes, perform a pothole test at Holden’s proving ground.

This was to see how the two sets of wheels react on real roads in Australia. Check it out yourself to see just how dangerous knock-off wheels are.
