Default Hairline Crack, Repair?

I have 5 KMC Rockstars. (20", black, 5 on 5.5....)
The extra is for a spare. While in the desert earlier last year, I aired down the tires while stuck in a huge sand dune area and got out. But I realized I needed to go to the gas station to air up, as my compressor had ceased working. So I made the trip 1.5 miles slowly but hit a pothole with 1 wheel and put a hairline crack in it. I didn't find the slow leak until 200 miles later, and I had to use a tub of soapy water to find the crack.
Now its my spare.
Can it be repaired by anyone?
A shop off of Craigslist offered for 90 bucks, but I first wanted to check that it was possible to fix and it was safe to fix.
Thanks for any help.
I might just replace?
