However how safe is it to repair a crack about 4 ins long?

It is fine. If a professional wheel reconditioner who was looked at the wheel says it can be done, it will be fine. Please kindly click on a positive rating

Ok understood ( but it's a shame) - how do I know someone is a professional alloyvwheelbrepairer?
Expert:  Steve replied 1 month ago.
Beacuse that's their business and they have the equipment to do it and advertise their services as such and have a shop full or repaired wheels... or you can ask your local main dealer for a referral as they certainly use one. Please kindly select a positive rating. You must click on a positive rating for each answered question
