    Default 19" snowflake rim cracked!!

    Just found out I've a small crack on the inside of one of my rims as the air kept leaking out overnight. I took it to tyre place and they found the crack. Now I would say its a small crack. One that can be easily welded. Anyway, I'm driving round with the spare wheel on and it's ridiculous looking. Embarrassing even. So I asked a local mechanic who is actually a vauxhall genius, and who breaks up vauxhalls as well if he had a spare 19" vectra snowflake. He didn't have any but told me that a batch of 19" snowflakes had been recalled at one time because the inside was cracking. I googled it and only saw stuff to do with BMW snowflakes being recalled. Nothing on the vauxhall snowflakes.

    So my question is, does anyone know anything about this supposed recall before I go to vauxhall and look stupid.

    Ps. I didn't hit a pot hole.
