I have a cracked rim too. Someone tried to fix it by just spot welding it. Is that how they are supposed to fix it?

Depends on where/how the rim was cracked. Spot welding is still compromised in rigidity--so if it crack on a spoke or something I think you might have to replace it. Should ask some wheel specialty shop.

A place like that, except in socal.

I suggest taking your rim to Tru Wheels located in North Hollywood. Just google and you'll find them. I bought a set of used Volk GT-7s that had terrible curb rashes. I was skeptical at first, but they did a great job and cleaned up pretty nicely. Don't be turned off by their simple website. ^^
