I have a set of 17" Cobra R replica rims (with the correct offset, etc) I bought used years ago. One of the set has developed a crack and leaks air, I had it welded once but it has begun leaking again.

1) What are my options for repairing this rim?

2) If I want to replace it, I don't have the company name who made these particular replicas and am wondering if anyone still sells them.

Find a certified rim repair company and please don't use JB Weld it's not worth your life.

Dude, you realize that's pretty insane, right?

JB weld ain't gonna hold a rim together; you're amazingly lucky.

You need to replace that, asap. Having posted it here makes you liable if you kill someone.

I got this rim welded a couple years ago and it cracked again at the same spot. So I took it back and the guy insisted on fixing it for free, says he never had a rim come back before after he welded it. I guess I will give him another shot at it...
