Being a forged wheel it should be fixable (that if it's not losing air - welding wheels is always a bad idea), but for a such low profile wheel I wouldn't risk it.

Try this

Give Rim Guard a call. They will tell you if they can fix it. They are based out of NC. They have done work for me before and its turned out really well.
