After watching a YouTube video on the subject, I decided to try a repair. I chose a 1959 Pontiac wheel that was beyond "BAD". I've read that people use JB Weld and similar epoxy products with great success. I was planning to write up a DIY on this subject once I was through restoring the wheel. I'll share the pictures I have.
Basically, any small cracks should be widened enough so that the epoxy can be effectively pushed into the crack. You smooth it level with your fingers before it hardens. Once it cures, you can sand it to make it smooth with the wheel's plastic surfaces.
See pics. I am very pleased with how easy it is and the cost is minimal. You need a Dremel tool or similar tool to grind with. I used NuMetal and I got it from JEGS.
Same area of the wheel after repair.
Repair area is just above my finger.
