I'm about 2500 miles from home. I wonder if a TIG weld on the rim would be sufficient to get me home where I can deal with getting a replacement rim. The crack starts on the inner edge and runs about 1-2" inwards. The tire leaks air otherwise I would never have found the crack.

edit: after some research, mostly comments from other Corvette owners in various places, I'm going with a weld to get me back home.
