Cracks in Alloy Wheels - Dangerous?
Posted 29 April 2012 - 02:22 PM
Before I put them on I gave them a real good cleaning.
I noticed that on two of the wheels there was a small crack about an inch long (2.54cm) on
the inside rim and on the third wheel about 3/4 of an inch.
The tires do not seem to be loosing any appreciable amount of air / pressure.
My question is - How dangerous is it to be driving with these wheels in their present state
and can they be satisfactorily repaired?

if you care about possibly injuring others ,no go.
if you live life on the edge, go for it.

If you are looking for advice on repairs, IIRC a new board member has experience with wheel repairs.

I wonder how many people the world over are running around with fractured
I mean how many people inspect their rims anyway?
And I've never heard of any spontaneous wheel disintegration.
Not into injuring myself though, that's for sure. Been there, done that.
I would like to investigate repairing them though.
Anyone with any experience with that?
