Just looking for an opinion/consensus.

I have a 2005 B5.5, 118k miles now.

I have 2 sets of rims, one with summer tires and one for winter tires. One of the rims cracked and frankly, I don't trust it being repaired properly.

So, with that said, should I just suck it up and buy a new rim from VW OR should I try the junkyard route?

This is on top of having to replace the drivers and left rear passenger door lock actuator, along with no heat issues.

I plan to keep the car for another 4-5 years.
