Cheap cast wheels...Seen MANY broken wheels on track cars, common denominator is there are all mass produced cheap wheels. This doesnt include the occurrences where busted wheels were inevitable.

I don't mean to downplay the seriousness of this (or validity of your statement) but I also want to point out that many, arguably most, of the aftermarket wheels out there are cast, but some are better than others. I hope this gets sorted out by XD.
