You should be shot. What sort of momma's boy spends 4K on new shoes? Were you trying to give Imelda Marcos a run for the title?
And it wasn't the cat's fault either you twit - drive under control.

i know that PG3s are three piece but exactly where is the third piece? I know that the center (the actual 5 spokes) is one piece and another it the very outer lip but where is the third piece?

PG3 is a welded 3 piece wheel. the 1st piece is the center obviously, the 2nd piece is the front lip, and the 3rd piece is the rear lip where it extends to the rear of the wheel. all 3 pieces are bolted together with rivets, then the portion where the 2 lip pieces meet up are welded togethere (some 3 piece wheels are silicone sealed).
