    Not in Cambridge but a guy near me did my irmy wheels and there still as strong as ever , You have to watch who you get to do them because they need to cut a wedge out and weld them and there best to leave the weld in tact on outside of wheel for strength.

    South west wheels is where i got mine done

    As bigmac says, possible to do and the repair is as above.
    Bear in mind that when people properly train to be a coded welder, they advise against repairing alloys. Reason being that the alloys are cast and by grinding out a fillet and infilling with weld, you create two structural interfaces in the metal that have different material properties to the parent metal.

    If they are actually trained as a coded welder, they are ignoring their training. If they are not trained, what comeback would you have?

    Your choice m8, but for my money, weigh it in and get a new one
