I had no idea that the DOT also Approved wheels as well until I was talking
to my insurance agent about several things on my car and if they are insured
or not. He indicated that a car without DOT Approved wheels would not be
covered in the event of damage caused by a tire blow out or wheel failure.
He also indicated that this is in most insurance contracts? Good thing I got
the DOT Panasports instead of the UltraLights. Sure enough, one of my
panasports still has a DOT Approved sticker on the back.
