    The VXR snowflakes dont tend to have any problems with them mate, it's the 19" XP1 rim that cracks.

    Boodachris, the Astra VXR snowflake is also the exact same rim so that should help broaden you search criteria.

    The 19" snowflakes are renowned for cracking at so much as a glimpse of a pot-hole was my understanding!

    (Don't think the 18" version that the OP is looking for are quite as guilty though)
