This was just off a facebook group. But I do remember something about that. They were all saying it wasn't torqued correctly but I think they were just guessing. More likely the rear brake locked from heat expansion and eventually tore free from the rim.

Nope. Not my pics. But these both got knocked back for warranty. One looks like an impact. The other looks like the standard surface cracks BMW describe only that there is clearly fibers showing. More than clear coat cracks.

Wow, the more of these complaints I see the more I'm glad I didn't get the 2020... I hope BMW changes their mind for future builds on quality of parts. For the price of the bike and the features you get, seemed too good to be true. All this confirms that.

Read the post at the beginning and you’ll find all the answers as this topic has been one of the dominant features of this bike.
BMW has its vendor improving quality wheels are being changed under guarantee.

I checked my rear one and it also has cracks around the same places like in the video. Small, barely visible but I suppose it is going to get worse.

This has been a major pain in the ass.

yours deserves to be warranty out by some dealer.
