Hi there, I'm new to this forum. Last night, I ran over a rock and my rims cracked. These rims were installed last night and they got cracked within 2 hours of installation, arghhhhhh. Just wondering what you guys think; should I repair them, get it welded or should I buy a new rim?

Thanks guys!

You should be able to find examples that don't need to be welded to repair cracks, which is a last resort IMO

Why is the question though. I can't tell the exact wheel style, but it looks like one you could probably still get fairly easily.

That because how often, will you be able to find just only "one" used wheel for sale......

Mostly used wheels will sell as a set of 4 with or without tires..... I'm sure the OP don't want to find a space to store the 3 wheels....

Buying a new one will cost an arm & leg.....

Getting it fix is the cheapest route to go, unless you got lucky & find just only "one" used wheel for sale.....
