cracked rims

I have a 2011 Cyclone 3814 triple axle, that we bought in 1010 has a cracked rim on left rear right front and right rear axle, cracked at the spokes, they are sending me one at this time I just noticed the other two today, and just sent them an update, I hope they will replace all of them. not really feeling warm and fuzzy, reading that there has been others that have had problems

I’m guessing you’re dealing with Tredit. As someone who has dealt with Tredit three times on wheel issues, I can say they are very responsive to their customers. All times they have replaced the wheel in question and the last time all four wheels. There is a lot of weight on there, in my case, 16” wheels. With 11 years on your wheels I’d be glad they were Tredit.

We had one of our rims like this crack as well. Ours was on a 2010 Elkridge. It cracked in 2012, Tredit sent us a replacement.

I know you meant 2010 but your finger slipped.

Tredit and HiSpec must use the same overseas supplier. I have had 3 cracked rims and know several others that have had the same issue. Lifetime warranties help.
 
update: Tredit is replacing the rims, they have been very helpful. FedEx on the other hand has lost or misplaced 2 of the rims . Tredit is overnighting them to me as of today, so we can leave on our trip.

I just discovered this thread. I had one basically explode on the way south last November. The tire was a new Sailun S637 bought last summer. I had to purchase a new tire and steel rim to complete the trip to Arizona. I have since discovered that the other wheel on the same side has 2 cracked spokes. I now have 2 of the spoked rims and 2 steel rims on the unit, one of each on each side. I guess I am SOL with Tredit. because I am not the original purchaser. I will be going to all steel rims that are rated at least 4000 lbs. These spoked aluminum things are not meant for these heavy trailers. Mine weighs in at about 13,500 lbs on the road.

Be interesting to know root cause, is it inclusions, voids, or stress-risers from poor machining? Combine one of those with smacking a pothole and voila!

You might want to check your date of manufacture or your tires. There has been a recall on some Sailun tires. Check it out HERE.

If your rims have developed air leaks, it's not surprising that you'd have tire failures. Even though you're not the original owner, you should call Tredit and ask if they'll replace the rims. They might surprise you.

If they ask, you should be honest about being the 2nd owner. But they might not ask.
