Aftermarket wheels cracking

Has anyone had any aftermarket wheels crack? I had one set that had 3 wheels crack that were replaced with upgraded wheels from the same company. Now that I have had these wheels for 3 years one just cracked and it has me worried more will crack. I can understand most other cracking in the spokes but mine are on the inside bead roll area. all 4 wheels cracked in similar places. I tow a large toyhauler with my truck but am within my weight limits and over 1800 lbs less than the wheel rating. I am trying to figure out if maybe something is whack with my truck or me. I am not hard on my truck but I do tow heavy. The thing that is wierd is this one was a front wheel. I have gone across cat scales so I know front, rear and trailer axle weight. I am at a loss and looing at going to centerline forged wheels but the are min. of 5 weeks out and 2k. I really really dont have the cash to drop 2k on wheels but I am worried. these wheels are rated at 3640 a wheel. Anyone else had issues?

Time to upgrade to commercial tires. Not pretty, but will be big and do the job. You can run some 285/70/19.5 tires on this wheel.
