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!

Are just the covers available? I have one that looks like that I did last week....really pissed me off. Ebay sellers want $300-$500 for ONE use wheel/cover. RIPOFF!

After I bought mine, I noticed one wheel has a slight rub on it...
Its amazing how much money they go for on ebay...I wonder what a new one is.

The cladding is sealed onto the wheel, there's no replacing it.

Got the same problem. Can you just change the wheel cover or do you have to buy a new whee?. At least with alloy wheels you can repair damage like that.

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.
