Found crack on edge of rim, where to fix?

Hey guys,

I found come curb rash and a small crack on the inside wall of my front wheel, dont know if a pothole did it or my suspension rubbed on it....but it is not leaking air....i think all the potholes in toronto started the crack and it will probably get worse and start leaking air....a new rim is $200...can I get it fixed for cheap (around $50) or should I get a new rim?

If I can get it fixed for cheap...anyone know where?


Thanks.

Really I don't know where you can go. I had shit experiences at Wheelfix, and Precision Wheel Repair. I have 3 piece wheels though.

You can try Carcone's, but they only work on cast wheels. And I haven't been there.

Thanks.

Someone posted from another site: Tiremaxx will fix (crack)/refinish the rim $150.00.

You can also call carcones.com and wheelfix.com

Thanks guys....but if its gonna cost me $150 to fix a small crack then i might aswell just get a new one as its $135 for a new RIM from tirerack.

I was just wondering if anyone knew a place that would fix (seal) a small crack for less than $50.
