Raceline Beadlock Crack or Casting flaw in wheel?

Bought a brand new set of Raceline RT 233 AL Monster beadlock wheels with tires recently and noticed one of the wheels had what looked to be a crack by the valve stem when it arrived.

Has anyone experienced this and is this actually a casting flaw and not as big a deal as I'm thinking it is?

Also when it arrived, the tire that was mounted on it was flat, and air was leaking from around the valve stem but not at the exact crack location.

Returning the wheel to the vendor is posing a bigger problem than I anticipated (long story) and I wanted to see if anyone had any thoughts on the issue. Thanks!

If you aren't getting support from the vendor then go direct to Raceline. They are reasonable people and should be willing to answer your questions and replace the wheel if it is indeed a new and unused wheel.

I called Greg and he's getting it taken care of He said it's very rare they have issues with their wheels....which from my research seems to be true. Glad they take care of their customers!
