Radial lacing is usually done with the spoke emerging from the inboard side of the flange. Yours is backwards.

It looks like the spokes have levered the flange over. I wouldn't trust it & I'd further have a talk with whoever built that wheel.

To my eyes, it has the characteristic stressed aluminum look that would always make us aluminum airplane mechanics leery of what the dye penetrant would find.
