You should definitely replace it. Call your local salvage yards - they can be had for as little as $50 around here.

Good luck,

Sometimes they can be repaired. Check with a local wheel specialty shop to see if they can fix it for a decent price. If not, a scarp yard is the first place id look followed by craigslist.

Good luck.

Either way, I wouldn't be driving with them. Had a friend that thought driving with a cracked wheel wasn't a problem, until a pothole finished off the wheel, and totaled his car as well...

Agreed with the consensus that it should be replaced. In most cases it cheaper to replace than repair..

You find a full replacement set for under $200 or less.

Agreed. With stock wheels its usually cheaper to replace. Repair is usually more for expensive aftermarket wheels.

Please do not drive on the cracked wheel. Not safe at all.
