Anyone have these wheels and suddenly have the wheels crack???

I put on a set of Firehawk Indy 500 tires and not long after, the front right wheel started slowly losing pressure. Found out it was cracked! Couldn’t find a replacement that wasnt $1800 so I opted to have it welded. Fast forward a month and now I have 2 MORE wheels cracked! One on front left and one on right rear, which has 2 cracks in diff places.

Any advice or knowledge as to what could be happening would be much appreciated!

Welcome to Challengertalk ;) Sorry, no answer for you, that sucks though. Those WRT wheels are forged, not cast, so should be less likely to crack I'd think

Are they the forged OEM wheels or cast WRT-style replica wheels?

Welcome to the forum from Virginia !
I always liked that style of wheel. Bummer they are getting cracks in them.
Must be that WV Turnpike : )
Hope the dealer can help you with the issues,

LOL Yes ! 79 is rough in places , Gee whiz, c'mon WV Dot, you have to have inspected that road ?
81 here in VA is getting bad in places. Some places, you want to be in the left lane for miles. They send all the highway funds in Virginia to NOVA. (Mordor)

Some of that crap they call a 'Interstate standard' highway, makes you appreciate those 10 ply tires
on the D-Ram & Jeep !

have a good one !
