    I posted this in the 60 forum also, when I crashed last week, one of the wheels suffered a crack and slight bend in the inside wheel lip about 3/4 of an inch long. Can this be welded?:hmm:

    With the bend and the crack, and the nature of aluminum; I would say no. Thats not to say you cant find someone to do it, I would be hesitant putting so much faith in such an easily replaced part. Maybe a trail spare at best IF it will hold air.
