    take it to a place that knows what they are doing first for safety reasons and second cause if they use too much to fill it the balance or the rim is gonna be screwed up

    contact the manufacturer where you bought it. they usually have a rim repair deal you can get with em.

    like those guys they give free rim repair if you buy from them.
