Do you have pictures? What did you do to crack it cuz even the cheapest wheels don't usually crack driving along the street. I would think if it's just cracked with no damage to the rim then you should be able to talk them into replacing it.

Yes I also have a broken 57s.. Mine cracked at the bottom of the spoke. Tire wont hold air. I took the tire off to try and get it fixed but there was no crack on the inside that could be seen. Kinda strange.. So I had the crack welded on the outside but it just cracked again in the same place..Sucks!
I just ordered new rotas today... Still kinda bummed about it. Now I have 3 useless rims .

And no I did'nt hit anything..

Where did yours break?

The more important question is what did you run over that caused them to break?

Sorry to hear about your wheel, butI love to see threads like this, just to prove to all the Rota haters that any rim can break.
