    Just got some G/Y Wrangler Territorys 265/75R16 put on my truck last night. They called me at 3 to say it was ready and when I got there at 430 one of the new tires was flat. Upon inspection they found cracks in the rim. What is weird to me is that I have never had a flat before! There was several cracks on the inner rim and one that is obvious from the outside(inside the tire!). It looks as though a rock was wedged in between the rim and drum.

    Has anyone had this happen to them?

    The only thing that we could think of was the crack managed to stay sealed with dirt/mud until the tire was dismounted and cleaned.:confused::confused::confused:

    No jumping. Mostly highway and the odd washboard gravel road. Also it was a rear wheel. I would have thought if I whacked something it would be the front wheel that would be damaged

    that is strange but I have never heard of this. Ive seen paint issues on stock wheels but never cracking. Im thinking maybe somehow there was a very quick series of expansion and contraction and these are like stress fractures. Maybe sitting in a warm garage and then going and driving in the snow? Thats my best guess

    Um.. K&N so far... sorry my bad.
    How many winters you got on the truck in B.C.
    Sometimes the road "salt" has other stuff in it that can eat at metals. The weak spot on the wheel could have been cracked by the tire taker on-er off-er machine, grabbing the inside of the wheel during tire removal / install.

    I got them to throw the new tire on the spare, thinking it matched the rest...not!

    Any of you Kelowna guys know of a good wheel repair shop up there? I've been thinking of getting my wheel powdercoated too. I guess now's my chance.
