damaged rim

I just had a new set of tires installed, and maybe by coincidence, or maybe the tire jockey clamped the rim improperly, but the rim is split right where it has a 90* bend. I would like to find a used barrel if possible. They are custom made 17" fuchs, with 20 bolts. The inner barrel is nearly 7.25 inches as seen. Any help appreciated. Philip

found a barrel...

and thanks to those who suggested it may be a broken seal. I will have a more detailed look at it tomorrow, and hopefully that's all it is. Philip

If it is a bad seal, strip the tire and use silicone to seal the spit. I can't remember exactly which silicone, but it was a silver one.

It's more than likely a bad seal. I had this happen when I put together 3-piece wheels and the silicone inside didn't cure properly.

If you need suggestions on how to do this yourself. PM me and I'll do my best to help.

cracked rim

Well it turns out to be a hairline crack in the rim. I found a used barrel... Philip
