    yep thats the beauty of true split rims they can be taken apart and repaired or replaced if needs be. Not always the cheapest though, so if you are buying make sure you get a price before you buy for the repair.

    Depends where you get it done, as it varies from place to place.

    Also depends what finish you want.
