The cracks look like they have a little rust stain bleeding out. I thought they were aluminum. If they're steel rims could it be a failure of the chrome plating or maybe it's just a bit of grime. Would be interesting to see the back side.
C'mon Jayco, you guys need to step up on this one!

Update

Jayco has stepped up on this, got a quick response from Randy, even though we are out of Warranty by about a month Randy said they would cover it and either he can ship me a replacement rim to my home address or I can purchase a rim and send him a copy of the bill and he will send me a reimbursement check.

I went ahead and ordered 4 of the HWT High Spec Heavy Duty Rims this morning, waiting on tracking number.
I will feel a lot better with the Stronger / Heavy Duty rims under our Pinnacle since this is the second rim failure.

It is great when a company like Jayco steps up and does the right thing, you can be sure when in the future we get ready to replace our Pinnacle with another 5th Wheel, it will be a Jayco !!!!!

Great piece of news Rob. Sounds like they'll help you buy at least 1 new rim.
Jayco, good job!

That is a great price. Couple of questions if you don't mind.

1. What is the load carrying cap. of the new rims?

2. Are they chrome steel instead of cast Aluminum?

I think they will give you plenty of peace of mind.

The cracked rims are made by Sendel. The same wheels that came on my 2013 Eagle 5er, except mine are 6 lug. Here they are at the Sendel site:
http://www.sendelwheel.com/wheels/t03sm
It would be good to know if there have been many other failures. I just bought a fifth wheel from them for my spare tire ($98).

****Upon further web research, found this discussion on another forum specifically dealing with this type of wheel, and that they have had a problem with cracking on Chinese made knock offs.

I read that post on the airstream forum, very informative.

My rims are made by Tredit and were OE on my current Jayco.
