Doing a 3 point turn against a curb and miscalculated by a hair.. Anyone know where I can get a new wheel cheap? I have seen used, replica and what appear to be repaired wheels but no deals on new ones. Would prefer new oem so that I know it's safe and straight.
I have 4 that look like this! Rotating might help the tires but it didn't help the rims. I searched and gave up. Not going to pay upwards of $200 to have 5+ like this. I found an alternative though.....Just don't stop. You can't see it when the wheels are moving!
2007 Expedition EL Limited
2002 Explorer XLT
2002 Mustang GT
I did that to one of mine. I only hit the cover though and the wheels itself was untouched. I got a small section of 2x4 and beat it the bent portion of cover back into shape. The chrome is still cracked a bit in the area, but you have to look hard to notice it now.
wife nailed the drivers front cladding while I was deployed. the steel is straight, but the cladding is tore up and FUGLY
For the price of 1 rim, I can almost buy a set of new rims. I think I'm going to pick up some take-off 22" F-150 Harley rims (2008 style) and get new rubber.

I had three wheels that looked like the OP's. The cost of replacing the factory wheels made it easy to talk the wife into the aftermarket wheels I wanted. Used ones that are scuffed up look like they are going for about $300 and up on Ebay. I did see some new take offs (less than 10 miles) with a buy it now of $485 plus $40 shipping. Too much (IMO) for factory wheels.
