    During the snow & ice a few weeks ago, I hit a kerb side on - only slowly. I looked at the time, and it just looked like a scrape along the edge. However I've looked closer this morning, and I noticed a hairline crack:

    How worried should I be about this?

    I don't know if it's gone all the way through, but I've not been losing pressure.

    cracked, from the photo it looks bent, personally i'd get it off and repaired or replaced, preferably replaced. The worst that can happen is you suddenly lose air and get a blowout or the wheel will collapse.

    change the wheel then get the alignment checked as that sort of impact could of done damage to the suspension.

    we offer hunter alignment at £45 +vat if that helps
