    I had one of mine do this and I think it came from the sharp edge on the extrusion when I inserted the wheel, the wheel got a little nick in it and then cracked form there.
    My solution is to file the sharp edges off the extrusion before bringing wheels near it (-:

    If you got your wheels from the Openbuilds shop, or one of their Representative outlets, then you should get in touch with them and explain your problem. :)
    Obviously under normal situations the wheels should not crack. Our shops will be more than happy to help you sort this problem out. :thumbsup:
