I had a very very similar experience.
I had a very life changing experience recently. Whist travelling with my young family at highway speed, my front passenger wheel strarted to make a squeeking sound. On examination (I stopped as soon as I could and thank god I did) the OEM Brabus Monoblock was completely cracked from front to back, all the way through on 4 legs and the 5th leg was holding it together with less than an inch of solid uncracked metal. This could have wiped my family and me out completely, absolutely shocking. Im never buying Mercedes again. I have attached the pics to illustrate just how bad the cracks were. These rims are genuine OEM and not reps. I triple check everything now.
P.S. Car always driven carefully, had no accidents, no pot hole damage etc etc.
