    yeah man, a cracked rim is like a crack in your television screen. You might as well go out and buy a new one. Shitty, but.....the truth

    Cracks only get BIGGER. I dont know how far welding is gonna take you, the rim probably has warpage from hitting that pothole. Anyway, low-pro tires are really shitty if you plan on hitting any more potholes

    man, I'd rather buy a new rim than rock one with a big ugly ass weld mark on the side but hey, if it's worth it to you, I'd look into the welding gig. If you live in the bay area, i could maybe get you some help from a friend of mine that does a lot of welding/metal fabrication

    the problem with buying a new rim is that these are custom 17inch that are painted black

    probably the same place you bought the set unless it came from an individual.

    you're not the first person to lose a rim to a pothole. shit...that's a good part of the reason why I won't put 18's on mine.

    edit: because the roads are so shitty where I live. we've got more potholes than the moon has craters.
