The handling can be improved by running larger wheels on your EV. Generally larger EV wheels mean that you will run a lower profile tire and usually a wider tire. The low profile tire often performs better when cornering and braking, as tire roll is greatly reduced.
Extremely large wheels are heavier and can increase braking distances. However, Ohm will always endeavor to keep the wheels as light as possible without compromising the strength of the wheel.
With regular care and regular road conditions, Ohm offers a one year finish warranty on its wheels with chrome and painted finishes. Ohm provides a lifetime structural warranty for wheels it manufactures that are structurally unsound because of a manufacturing defect caused by Ohm that makes the wheel unfit for its ordinary purpose. Damage or issues with wheels manufactured by Ohm that are not caused by, or the result of, a manufacturing defect by Mandrus are not covered under the warranty. Additionally, the following are expressly excluded from the warranty:
• Ohm does not offer a "road hazard warranty," so any damage or issue with a wheel caused by the wheel colliding with a pothole or any other object or debris will not be covered by the warranty;
• Wheels that have been used in racing are not covered by the warranty regardless of the damage or structural unsoundness; and
• Wheels mounted on vehicles with a load rating in excess of the load rating of the wheel are not covered by the warranty regardless of the damage or structural unsoundness.
• Wheels that have been modified, repainted, or powder coated.
THE WARRANTY ONLY APPLIES TO THE ORIGINAL PURCHASER OF A WHEEL AND THE WARRANTY IS LIMITED TO THE ACTUAL AMOUNT OHM WAS PAID FOR THE WHEEL.
To submit a wheel for determination of coverage, a distributor must first obtain a Returned Goods Authorization number from an authorized Ohm salesperson. Wheels sent to Mandrus without first obtaining a Returned Goods Authorization number will be refused and returned to sender. After obtaining the Returned Good Authorization number, THE DISTRIBUTOR WHO PURCHASED THE WHEEL FROM OHM must send the wheel by freight prepaid, as freight costs, shipping costs and any consequential damages are not covered by the warranty, to Ohm headquarters, California for inspection by Ohm. The invoice of the original purchase must be included with the wheel so Mandrus can verify the wheel is being submitted for coverage under the warranty by the original purchaser. A customer of a distributor cannot directly send a wheel for inspection to Ohm as Ohm does not communicate, correspond or deal in any way with the customers of Ohm distributors. A wheel submitted to Ohm by a customer of the distributor will be returned.
After receiving a wheel submitted by a distributor for inspection, Ohm will inspect the wheel and notify the distributor if the wheel is covered by the warranty. If Ohm determines the wheel is covered by the warranty, Ohm will issue a credit note to the distributor for the amount the distributor paid Ohm for the wheel.
