use it as an expensive door stopper or paper weight!

There are places that fix wheels in the larger cities. Look around your area.

They also make good coffee tables. Just throw a glass top over it and your all set :)

THere is a place here in NL that will fix all aluminum rims. Dent/bend removal, welding cracks and refinishing. I saw them fix a wheel that had a chunk broken out of it. When they were done it was just like brand new.

So if there's one here in newfoundland, there's got to be one in the larger centers as well!!!

It's safe until it falls apart.

It's hard to tell with no discription of the crack or picture. Is it one tiny crack or does it run all around the rim?

If you think it's bad, don't ride on it. Put another wheel on till it gets fixed or replaced.

Hey man check into Wheels America.....they fix chipped and cracked rims and they also have a huge variety of stock wheels on hand....last i heard they fix wheels for $99 a wheel. They have shops in Dallas, St.Louis, NYC, L.A., Houston and a bunch of other places.

I drove on a stock cracked rim and it fell apart. Not worth the risk, man! :)
