2-piece wheels... seperating?

thought i had a leak in my tire, so i took my car on up to the tire place and had them check it out. come to find out that the 2 pieces of my wheel are seperating (rim from spokes).

is there a way to have this repaired? or am i SOL?

That's a serious structural defect and I'd take a real close look at all the others and really think twice about driving on any of them until you know what is happening. Is it a two piece wheel (hub section welded to or rivited to the rim) or is it a one piece cast or forged rim and the spokes have cracked. The two piece can probably be fixed. The other would have to be tossed. Fixing bent rims is Ok but don't mess with spoke damage, that's a structural and safety issue. I'm sure if the wheels came from a reputable wheel company they would be interested in hearing about your problem. I'm assuming you didn't bounce it off a curb or into a car eating pot hole.

it's a 2 piece wheel, definitely. and it's not the spokes, it's between where the spoke section and the polished lip meet.
