A few years ago my 3500 DRW was hit by a car dead center on the driver’s side rear dually…This not only bent the rear axle but caused the outside alloy rear wheel to look like a popcorn kernel…But upon a close examination of the wheel, there were sharp folds and bends, yet NO cracks!! …My suspicion is that a cracked wheel suggest a ‘cast product’ rather than a forged wheel, the same type used on Big Rigs – JMO
