Bad news mate.
Personally I'd get a new rim if it's cracked in 3 places.
Are they RS8's, cos you should be able to pick one up quite quickly T:

I have a single crack in one of my RS6 rims and asked around, including my father who is a very experienced engineer. The consensus of opinion is that it's perfectly ok to get the cracks welded (assuming it's done well). Unfortunately he's 130 miles away at the mo, so haven't got mine done yet, but this is the course I will be taking. Also in the course of researching this found these guys who seem to pretty skilled in allow wheel repair. However I haven't used them, don't know anything about them other than what's on their site.
