I have a set of 17" Focal R3 rims. The other day I hit a pothole and cracked the inside of one of them. The crack is about 1/2 inch long and causes a slow leak. What should I do? I heard you can't weld on a rim because it throws off the balance or something. Some of my..."creative" friends thought that JB Weld or Fix a Flat would help. I...disagree. Can this problem be fixed? Thanks in advance!!!

BTW: Focal wheels absoloutely suck! They are heavy and low quality. The finish comes off and apparantly they crack pretty easy. They are cheap so I quess you get what you pay for! Anyone know a good deal on some Racing Hart C2's or C5's?

I would replace the rim or just go and buy new ones. welding a rim back together is risky if you ask me. just my 02.=)
