Help with replacing AMG Rear Wheel

While replacing the rear tires at Sams Club on my 2001 SLK 230 (118,900 ODO) the tech found a 1/4+ crack in the wheel rim. (I have pix but dont know how to upload them.)

The owner of my local tire shop said its going to leak even if I have it welded. I check the air in my tires every month and have never found extraordinary leakage, but to err on the side of safety, Id like to replace both rear wheels.

My wheels are not stock SLK wheels. They are AMG wheels: Rear is 8.5J x17 (5-spoke) Mono Block Alloy Wheels; Tire size 245/40 R17.

Does anyone have any idea where I would find a set or worst case a single wheel rim?
