just noticed a huge crack in one of my wheels, cant afford a new one!

Wot happens next? It gonna crack and fall apart?? or will i be okay till i go to change the tyre??

The crack is about 3" long and kinda runs parrallel with the edge of the rim.

looks to me like it jus gona keep gettin worse till it snaps.

i noticed a funny line in my alloys, one of em has a crease, like a crack but more smooth at edges, like a cut that has been sprayed over. have been told its a fault in the metal

You need a new wheel mate. Either that or you will die when you tyre blows at 70mph+ on the motorway!

as said m8 - dont take a chance on it getting worse, either get a new rim or stick the spare on till u sort the problem out. not worth risking ur life over chancing it. how old r the wheels??
