949Racing 6UL & 6ULR wheel Limited Warranty

 The 6UL wheel is guaranteed to be free of structural, materials or workmanship defects for a period of 1 (one) year from date of purchase. 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.

Because racing is a dangerous sport, the buyer assumes all risk and liability whatsoever resulting from the use of said products.

  If you have a materials, workmanship concern within the first year after purchase, return product to 949 Racing for warranty determination. Shipping from customer to 949 Racing is customer's sole responsibilty. 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 wheel is found to be covered under warranty, 949 Racing will cover shipping charges back to customer. Otherwise, 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/redial runout "Roundness"
Axial and radial runout spec for a new 6UL is .020" measured at the bead seat. If you believe your new 6UL 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 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 on car. Inspect your wheels first!

 Examples of non-warranteeable conditions:

  • Powder Coating any portion of the wheel

  • Stunt driving involving jumping the vehicle off the ground
  • Any timed motorsports event

  • Damage due to over-inflation of tire (>51psi)
  • Damage or failure resulting from bead or sand blasting for paint removal

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 may result injury or death.

Intended Use
All 949 Racing wheels are designed, engineered and intended for competition use under rigorous conditions.
As competition or trackdays are inherently prone to causing vehicle damage, such use is not covered by any warranty express or implied for any 949 Racing product. Use of 949 Racing wheels or any other product sold or distributed by 949 Racing is done so at your 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.
