949 Racing Wheel Limited Warranty

949 Racing wheels made after 2022 have a lifetime structural warranty against cracks or fractures. Wheel lifetime is defined as the functional service life of the wheel. See exclusion listed below. 949 Racing wheels are warranted for one year against materials, workmanship  and cosmetic defects for a period of one year. This warranty is valid until the size, offset and PCD variant being submitted for warranty is discontinued or no longer available or two years from date of purchase, whichever comes first. 949 Racing is not liable for any loss, damage, injury or expense either consequential or incidental, from the use of this product. 949 Racing assumes no responsibility for any losses, costs or extra expenses as a result of a defective item or the return for warranty determination of said item. Example: tire dismounting, rebalancing, shipping, alignment, etc. This warranty is extended only to the original owner with retail purchase documentation and is not transferable.

949 Racing wheels made before 2022 are covered under our 3 year defects, materials and workmanship  warranty. Warranty for wheels that are discontinued or no longer available will be offered as a store credit at 949Racing.com.

Motorsports is an inherently dangerous sport with significant risk of personal injury or even death. When a user participates in vehicle racing, track events, performance motoring and or other motorsports events, he or she accepts the risk inherent therein. 949 Racing, its employees, and affiliates make no warranty that the use of its products or parts guarantees personal safety or freedom from physical injury or operates as a life saving device.  949 Racing disclaims all liability for any special, direct, incidental or consequential damages, or any damages whatsoever, including, without limitation, the loss of life or limb, or damages due to bodily or personal injury, which may arise or result.

If you have a materials, workmanship concern within the first year after purchase, return the product to 949 Racing for warranty determination. Shipping from customer to 949 Racing is customer’s sole responsibility. If the product is found to be defective under the terms of this warranty, it is at the sole discretion of 949 Racing to replace or credit the wheel.  If the wheel is found to be covered under warranty, 949 Racing will cover shipping charges back to the customer. Otherwise, the customer is responsible for shipping both ways. Wheels returned for warranty submission become sole property of 949 Racing. It is in 949 Racing’s sole discretion to destroy a returned wheel if it is deemed unserviceable, whether covered under the terms of this warranty or not.

Sphericity, concentricity, axial/radial runout “Roundness”
Axial and radial runout spec for a new 949 Racing wheel is .040″/1mm measured at the bead seat. If you believe your new wheel may be out of round, perform this test: Remove tire. Mount wheel on balancer and tighten lock nut. Spin wheel by hand and either observe or measure with a dial indicator. Reports of out of round wheels are invariably due to a tire seating unevenly. The customer sees the tread wobbling and assumes it is the wheel. Before we can accept a wheel back for out of round, an 8-12 second smartphone video with the wheel only on a balancer must be emailed back to us. If the wheel has been mounted onto a car, the warranty for roundness becomes void.

  • Buyer responsible for fit. No returns once tires are mounted
  • No coverage for cosmetic defects or shipping damage once tires are mounted or wheels mounted are on a car. Inspect your wheels before mounting tires!

Service Life
All aluminum wheels used in competition have a finite service life. It is important to check the wheels for cracks before every competition or track day. Any brand of light weight alloy wheel may crack after several years of track use with race compound tires, kerb hits or dropping a tire off the track edge. If you find cracks in any aluminum race wheel, it must be removed from service and destroyed. We recommend drilling a large hole in the outer rim to make sure no one else uses a cracked wheel. Failure to regularly inspect your wheels and suspension may result in injury or death.

Use of 949 Racing wheels or any other product sold or distributed by 949 Racing is done at your own risk. 949 Racing assumes no liabilities for injury, death or loss of property as a result of using a 949 Racing branded or sold product under any usage conditions, including competition, autocross, drifting, time trial, HPDE, or track days.
