The rims can crack causing the rider to lose control of the bicycle, fall, and suffer injuries. Performance has received two reports of rims failing, though no injuries have been reported.

The silver or black rims have the above-mentioned brand and model names on the rim (i.e., "Forte Pro SL"). Performance Stores and the company's website sold these bicycle rims from February 2001 through October 2001 for $600 for Performance bicycles and between $35 and $130 for bicycle wheels with rims built on.
