Haven't, but you can probably find your rim on the Tredit website: http://www.tredittire.com/wheels

Jack Lyons had a bad rim a couple of months back and Tredit sent him a new rim.. I believe they are warranted for life if cracked.. Call Tredit and ask..

I had one crack. Tredit replaced it. If it is an 80 PSI rim I recommend requiring 100 psi rims so you can upgrade tires.
Best of luck and safe travels.

Had a rim crack on my Ford Truck that was covered under warranty. The crack was where the spoke met the outside of the rim. Cracks happen even when within weight ratings. This is why being overweight doesn't help matters.

DW and I were returning from a 1,600 round trip and we were at our last final motel stop about 300 miles from home. Woke up that morning, getting the truck packed up, then saw the tire problem. Talk about feeling "deflated", LOL, pun intended. Finished packing, got breakfast, paid our motel bill, changed to the spare tire, and drove home the last 300 miles. The next day, we drove to the Ford dealer to take care of the replacement and had to argue the fact the cracked rim was NOT my doing so that the warranty paid the cost.
