Front Wheel Cracked

Just got back from two weeks on the road and as I inspected the front tires I found the wheel has a crack all the way through. I google searched it and found a recall from Alcoa but it said it does not apply to OEM rims. Has anyone else had the rims crack? I had front end alignment and front tires balanced and replaced four rear tires before the trip and front tires wore very bad on outside and inside during trip. Pressures were good when I checked on the road.

Need front tires and now a new rim...What can cause tires to wear so bad after alignment?

They either screwed up the alignment or you had an existing problem before.how are your ball joints and wheel bearings?
Just throwing this out there but I have a shop near me that wouldn't align my truck cause my ball joints were going bad and I had 2 bad tie rods. If they went ahead and aligned your truck and you have a couple bad front suspension components then that might be the case.

I'd say they only set the toe, and nothing else. I also think you had a bad tire. You shouldn't need to add as much weight as they did to balance out.

someone I spoke to mentioned worn ball joints may cause the inside of tires to wear? I that was a lot of weights added to the tire! It's also where the wheel is cracked all the way through. I'm sure the shop would have mentioned it if the wheel was broken when they balanced it??
