    Default Rim Crack or Seam in Metal

    Our L 3130 has 120 Hrs on it we bought it new two years ago.
    Yesterday I was washing it and noticed that the back wheels have a crack in the rim.

    It is more noticable on one than the other. I don't know if this is just a seam in the steel or a true crack.

    We only use this for bushhogging and I don't know of anything we could have done to make a crack.
    So I don't know if I am just seeing something that was there all along or we have cracked the rims.

    These do go the complete way from outside to inside and they do not have any gap just a crack.
    Please let me hear from someone before I use this again.

    A picture would certainly help, but I'll bet it's just a seam from when the wheel was made. Do you have tube type or tubeless tires? If they're tubeless, naturally, any crack would be leaking air.
