Cracks in eyelets

Just noticed 3 or 4 of the eyelets in the back factory rim have cracks up to 7mm from the rim hole.

Should I be concerned with this or does the rim have plenty of life left in it?

I was concerned that the rim could discintegrate on a big hit, is this possible?

Bike is a 2001 KTM 520 EXC.

Rim SIze - 18inch

Running tyre - 120/100


Of course - replace it ASAP. Man, did you really need to asK?

Cracks propagate into material failures, you don't want to be the rider when it goes.

Cracked rim=scrap rim. Once it's cracked anywhere, it's like a helmet, it's done.

Ahhh leave it..............whats the worst that can happen.:):cry::applause:
