Update on cracked wheel:

Decided to purchase new wheel after not finding any in salvage yards.  New
OEM 10 spoke wheel from was $178.00.  Dealer price was
>$400.00!!  For the difference in price between repair and new,  I figured
it would be best to spend the extra money and not worry about it cracking
again.  I will soon have a cracked wheel rolling around my garage, too.
