Only register rims with a strength report?

What is the difference between a Strength report and a Teilegutachten? A question that reaches us frequently and that we would like to address in this short article. A strength report is just one Snapshot. The report determines the test conditions and the technical values ​​of the test parts. You can use the strength report so-called Comparative tests carry out. With regard to the rims, the result then provides a statement as to whether the rims in ongoing production were manufactured under the same conditions as the test wheels at that time. But we are often written to whether a set of rims can be entered according to §21, i.e. as an individual entry, if a strength report is available. In fact, there are many providers on the net who offer rims with the note "Strength report for registration" to sell.

no entry with strength report

But even if some inspectors still do it, the practice of individual registration of rims produced in series, for which only a strength report is available, is not permitted. If parts are produced in series, then a parts certificate or a ABE necessary. And that applies not only to light alloy rims, but also to other tuning parts. The tuning parts like Rims, Exhaust and Co. must therefore bring a parts certificate / area of ​​application certificate according to §19.3. Alternatively, of course, the ABE mentioned above is also possible. So there are no problems with the entry in the vehicle documents! So it corresponds to the fact that rims can no longer be registered with a strength report alone. At the TÜV or Dekra you can save yourself only with the strength report. Has the desired set of rims KEIN There is a parts certificate especially for the desired car Teilegutachten for the rims for another car and on top of that comparable rims with parts certificate for your own vehicle, then maybe this can be done by means of Comparative report enter. Here, however, the individual case often decides.

    Thank you for your contribution on the subject of rims. My sister wants to buy new rims for her tires. Good to know that the use of unregistered rims must be confirmed by strength reports.
