Cracked Front Rim on C230 Sport
I have an 07 C230 Sport and about 6 months ago I got a flat on the front right tire. I got it aired up and went to a tire shop thinking I had picked up a nail....to my surprise and dismay, they found the inside aspect of the rim near the bolts has a crack. They 'patched' it with some rim glue and got me on my way. It leaks down about 5 psi a day. I've delayed getting a new wheels because of the OEM cost. My question is since all the rims are at 100k miles, would I be better off just replacing all 4 with a less expensive rim and selling the other 3 in hopes that 1. they are stronger and 2. the others might be near stress failure? Any insite would be great and anyone that has found rims that are as nice looking as these in an aftermarket, the link would be appreciated.
