I have some giovanna corsica 20s and one of the wheels has a 2 inch long crack and it is letting air out of my tire. I can drive it a while but after a few hours I can notice a difference in pressure. After I park it for the day, I can come out the next morning and have to go put more air in it because it gets real low. I was wondering is there anything I could do to save this rim,I dont have the $660 to pay for one rim. any help would really be appreciated. thanks

Go to a welder who specializes in aluminum alloy metal.Also a Rim shop might have a connection with someone who can do it. You can't weld it with a regular welder because the rim has to be pre-heated before it is welded. Hope this helps ;)

From what i heard you need an aluminum welder like lil deville said, you can warp the wheel if it's not done right. Shit can happen to steel wheels too, i had to deal with it on some supremes i had cause the guy didn't know how to do it right.

JB WELD and DUCT TAPE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!









Nah check with local rim shops and ask if they now of any1 that does it. i cracked one of my aluminum 19's and got it welded and had the lip redone for $90. Tell the shop that you have some weird ass wheel that you know they don't make anymore casue a lot of shops are shady and won't tell you so they can sell you a whole rim!!!!!!!!
