Q: I have a crack in my rim

asked by on

Can you drive if the rim has a crack
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello, thanks for writing in about your Dodge vehicle. This can be very dangerous if the rim decides to come apart. I do not recommend using the wheel and putting on the spare tire until you replace the rim. If you need assistance with this, consider YourMechanic, as one of our mobile technicians can come to your home and install your spare for you.
