If so, did you file a claim directly with Grand Design, Lions Head, or your RV dealer? Thanks for the help.

Just an update on my original post. I filed a warranty claim with Lionshead and provided the 4 photos each per wheel. Lionshead very quickly responded that they approved my claim and would ship replacements to me. I received the new wheels and will be mounting my tires on them soon. Lionshead acted very quickly and professionally in replacing the wheels.

    Our unit was four years old last spring and when I pulled the unit out of storage I had one wheel that was cracked real bad. I sent Lionshead the required photos and information and they sent me four brand new wheels two days later. Was very pleased with their customer service.
