CRF 450 R wheels

So I've got a couple of cracks in the rear, after some thoughts from anyone that's gone down a similar path....do I
1. Buy rim and replace it
2. Buy a wheel set....expensive, and I'm broke
3. Anyone got a spare to sell???

It's a 2008 model

I've had a front wheel start to crack at the join and I just got it welded up. A good welder can do it easily.
If it doesn't use fossil fuels then it's not a toy worth having.

I've had them welded too, cost bugger all but I would make sure they are a good welder that does it just to be sure.
