I was at a wheel shop a couple of weeks ago and saw a failed (what appeared to be a) Ruf front wheel. The outer flange had broken where it meets the spokes and it appeared the metal there was barely over 1/16th" thick.

Either theres's somebody making very authentic-looking knock-offs that are dangerously poorly engineered or someone machined the wheel after it was sold. It broke on the tire mounting machine; thankfully not on the street.

Be careful out there!
