    They seem to sell on eBay for $125 up. OEM rims can be a bargain there as the kids all want monster meats.

    Sorry, I do not have a recommendation. But will say that I have had two wheels straightened, one was successful and the other not so much. If you can grab one as G-man says for $125, that is probably cheaper than getting one straightened.

    That is a serious ding. Is the tire ok?

    Like others have said you can go the repair route for a similar price or more than it would be to just replace the wheel. My dad refused to buy a two new wheels on his old bmw. The previous owner smashed into a curb and rashed the hell out of them. Always leaked air. He spent 3 or 400$ on trying to fix them. Never did, he could have gotten two new replacement wheels for half that and been done with it.

    What's the difference between a bolt and a screw?
    First you screw, then you bolt.

    I called junk yards and found a rim for $100 when this happened to me. Good luck!

    Alloy Wheel Repair Specialists in Quincy welded a cracked 19" mercedes rim and refinished it for me last year. $170, and I was very happy with their work. They aren't a retail facing shop as they mostly subcontract to the dealers in the area, but you can walk up and drop your wheel off. Good luck.

    Check this "auto recyclers" source, but it looks like available ones have flaws car-part.com
    I've had good luck with Goyettes too.

    Re: Dented car wheel repair

    I had a rim repaired at mc wheel but after 6 weeks I had to drive there
    making angry noises to actually get it AND in the end it was as expensive as the salvage

    Re: Dented car wheel repair

    I had a pot hole bridge expansion joint do the same to my BMW 3 series wheels (years ago). Sarris Auto across from the Arsenal Mall in Watertown had some local rim repair guy fix them for cheap money. Not sure who it was but Sarris is a GREAT resource for foreign car service in the Boston area.

    Re: Dented car wheel repair

    forgot to report back...contacted a junkyard that had the correct wheel...the listing said it was blemished and was graded poorly which means it was in pretty rough shape so i asked them to email me a photo of it and they never did...i called back again to try and get a photo and they never sent it...so i gave up and ordered a remanufactured one on ebay for $350...then we went and bought 2 new tires and i kept the 1 tire that didn't take the hit as a spare in case of a blowout...i kept the old wheel as well...i'm guessing i'm going to scrap it for the aluminum...i don't want to spend money to try to straighten it if it could crack and possibly never need it

    Old wheels make great garden hose and air hose hangers.

    Long lag bolt is how I did mine. But when i traded my car in, the dealer wanted the original wheels so I had to take them down.
