We had the problem on a 2388 with singles at about 4500 hours. We bought rings that match the bolt pattern and inner wheel diamater and welded them right on top of the wheel. We bolted the rings on the wheels and took them to a professional welder. Held up great.

Just an opinion, but I would not cut part of the wheel out. Seems like a good way to have a bad day. Welding the ring over it doubles the strength around the lugs.

We raised heck with case and they gave us a free wheel. You would probaly have better luck since your machine is newer.
