Cracked Rim

This is new rubber that I hit a bad pot hole on the way to brooklyn. My passenger rear rim is cracked and its causing a leak.

Any ideas on what I should do? I am driving on it (just had it filled with air) and the tire place put a compound temporarily on it.

Comments questions concerns?

Cheers.

Get a used replacement when one pops up here on the forums or ebay.

Do you have 159s? I'll be selling my 5 off individually in about 2 weeks.

I would replace the wheel as soon as possible. Driving on a slightly cracked wheel is extremely dangerous.
