REPLACEMENT WHEEL OPTIONS

I just joined the forum. (Great forum, by the way!) I purchased the wife a 4x2 2007 Expedition Limited a week ago Friday. Unfortunately the wife has already found the curves in a parking garage, and has damaged the 20" chrome-clad wheels. I had thought about just replacing the damaged wheel, but now I'm thinking about just putting on some aftermarkets. The wife wants something compariable in appearance to the stock chrome clad ones. I know some of you have already replaced your wheels, but I was just wondering if any one had advice on some chrome wheels compariable to the stock ones in design. I found some "Raceline maxim 6's" that I like( http://www.racelinewheels.com/s-9-wh...?ProductID=222 ) , but just wondering if any one had come across any other brands with something closer to the stock look. Also, these Racelines have an offset of +35mm vs the stock +44mm. That shouldn't be a problem on the 2007's, should it?

thanks,
Joey

Just replace the wheel...If you were in the midwest I have an extra one I could sell you.
Look on Ebay, with shipping I saw one for around $250.00.

I disagree. Get a new set of a differnt (better) wheel. If this happened to one, it will happen to others. We had one scuffed up when we bought ours in March. Now three are bad. When the tires are ready for replacing, i will be replacing the wheels and tires. I just have not started looking. So i am sorry that I can't help. And I doubt that I will be going with chrome. But we will have to see. The chrome does look good with the pearl white paint. Good luck. The stock plastic chrome wheels suck.

Is your wife going to park somewhere else from now on? if not, maybe just go the cheapest route.

I ended up the buying a used OEM pair on ebay. I'm still looking for a third one. I really wanted to go with aftermarket, but couldn't find anything that the wife liked as well as the stockers.. And it will be cheaper finding 3 replacements vs 4 aftermarkets, although not much. I've seen a couple different tires that have the "wheel guard" molded into the tire, so I plan to get some. Also, I am thinking about going with the 305/50/20's vs the stock 275/55/20's, which should help-out some..
