Cracked wheel

Was trying to take the wheels of the front of my truck. But my half inch impact won't do it. While I was waiting on my compressor to catch up I noticed about a half inch crack in one of the holes on my passenger side front wheel. Would you guys trust a repair shop or buy a new rim.. Next question where can I find info to update my wheels to the sd star style wheels or what do I type for searching. I ran a quick search but came up with nothing of use. Just jibber jabber. If im not mistaken they are different lug patterns right?

My current ones are the obs ford dually aluminum. In avatar pic.

Thanks

Yes the 99-04 were 8x170mm then 05+ i believe they went to 8x200mm. So you would need to change the front dually spacers into adapter/spacers going from 8x6.5 to 8x170 or 200 depending the year of wheels you buy. For the back you would need adapters to the new bolt pattern.

Just make sure you buy high quality spacers because these trucks are big and carry big loads so spacers and adapters can be dangerous. Its honestly safer(and probably cheaper) to buy aftermarket rims that fit your bolt pattern than buying all those sets of spacers and adaptors AND the new SD wheels. But thats my opinion so take it with a grain of salt.
