Noticed hairline cracks on two of the "spokes" of the rear wheel, Anybody have a good used one for sale?

Was just wondering what may have caused the cracks?

Crummy tire brand? (luv's me City Grips! HARD tread/soft side-walls.)
+33lbs. tire pressure?
'Full-figured' rider?
Lot of 2-up riding?
Not constantly, consciously, vigilantly, riding a 'thin line' down ALL America's deteriorating roads?
Jumping over too many bus's like Evil Knievel?
Not properly supporting the 'hub' & rim when changing tires?

Maybe if you had the tires replaced before the mechanical tire bead breaker? I would think it would take quite a bit of force to crack the spokes.
