Pulled the tire and tube last night and went over the rim really carefully. The sides do not show real obvious wear. No deep grooving or pitting on the braking surfaces.
Here is a pic of the seam. The small dark mark on the shoulder, above the braking surface to the right of the seam is the scratch/crack, not sure which
I did find what is either appears to be a scratch but what may be a crack near the pinned seam. It is circled in red here and is hard to make out, shows a shiny line moving diagonally up to the right in this pic.
Gave the rim and tire a very good wipe down and put it all back together. Went over the wheel again looking for loose spokes and did not find any.
Going to take it by the bike shop this weekend and let their wheel expert look at the scratch/crack area near the seam.
Thanks for the input ya'll.
