Angry Cracked wheels on BMW 2006

Today the front left rim (17 inch) on our 2006 BMW330 cracked at freeway speed. The car was going on a perfectly smooth road, and did not hit anything. The rim cracked all the way around, and basically it split in half, as you cut a baggle. After that we decided to get rid of the BMW rims and repalce them with after market ones. Ofcourse we had to buy new tires too.

I can not believe the hazard associated with this car. Why is BMW not doing anything about this? These cars are EXTREMELY dangerous to drive. So many people are getting their rims cracked with these RFT tyres on the 330 BMWs. There is even a facebook page now.

I was wondering if anyone has had any luck talking to BMW about this. I did file a report with BMW customer relations, and have yet to hear back from them.
