One of my wheels kept losing air and so when I took them off I realized that I had a small crack on the inside of the rim. Can this be somehow fixed through welding? Will it be a problem as far as giving out as soon as I drive on it again?

Mine was way worse than that( I have a thread about it) wheel doctor fixed it right up. It can be done safely by the right person

Any aluminum welding specialist can fix that crack. But you will still have to bring it to a wheel shop to make sure it's straight and true.

Depends on where he could find one. If I cracked my rim I'd just go buy a new one since mine were 135 a wheel at discount haha

Mine was so much because it was on the front and the lip was bent and cracked. Lot more work. His is on the backside and not bent. Be about 50 bucks to fix. These guys are all over the place. Check out Wheel doctor.com. He's also checks for trueness of the wheel, balancing, and it holds air.

I stopped by a industrial lark and found a welding shop and he made mine look like new for a $5 foot long sub!
