ahalee84,
Are these alloy rims (Aluminum) or the OEM steel wheels?
What tires are on these rims?
Are these rims aftermarket or genuine Mercedes Benz?
Have you actually weighed both axles on the Sprinter?

I can't say why it's happening but it is extremely unusual to see a factory steelie fail.

We have 9 Sprinters, only one cracked steel wheel in our history and the drivers here overload them all the time.

Are the cracks consistently in the same place?
