WTB one OEM M166 Back Wheel

Hi,

Today I went to Buffalo to replace my tires (I live in Toronto) as I'm waiting the for the car to be ready the tech comes in and tells me that there is a fine crack on the rear wheel. The crack is at the edge of the back of the RIM like a hair line about 1.5 inch long. Not sure if the tech cracked it while removing the old tire as I did not experience any leaks prior to replacing the tires! But who could prove that! :angry:

So I'm looking for one OEM wheel with no damage. The tire shop tells me that the crack can be repaired but they needed to send it out for next day service which I could not wait for. When I got home, I called couple of shops, I was told that it is not recommended to repair a crack and should replace the wheel which I'm not looking forward to!

Did anyone have a similar experience and managed to repair the crack without any issues later on? Thanks

Could someone please advise if a crack can be fixed or recommended? It's a hair line crack at the edge of the RIM from the inside! Thanks
