Does anyone know of a place in Perth that does repairs to cracked rims? The tyre place I usually go to says theres a guy in Osbourne Park and someone in O'Conner that do them, but I didn't bother looking and just bought myself an entirely new rim.

I was thinking of getting it welded and selling it for cheap for a bit of extra cash, otherwise if anyone wants it to fix it for themselves or to sell or whatever, I'd sell it 'as is' for next to nothing.

I've included some pics of the damage for anyone interested.

s**t, if you were a bit closer I would have liked to have buy that off of you, wouldn't mind a matching spare.

How'd you crack it mate?

was about 2 weeks after i got it.. first time id really driven it in the wet.. span my wheels round a corner.. straight into a square kurb..

blew the valve out of that tyre (my front left) and ripped my rear left tyre completely off. guys at the tyre place said the rims where fine, worse damage was obviously the tyres and my wheel alignment and camber was all out

then about 4 months later, my front left tyre kept deflating and coming off the rim, thought it was the valve again but they then found the crack that they obviously missed the first time
