Split aluminum is VERY VERY bad and unsafe. It is not a material, in this
state, that will handle much shock loading (such as that dished out by
normal surface streets!). Epoxy will NOT help making this rim safe, even
temporarily, it'll only help the rim hold air until the crack quite
quickly enlarges. He'd be a whole lot safer to even temporarily get an
appropriate sized steel rim until he comes across his injured BBS rim's
