Where to buy replica wheels

I've been reading through a few posts and it looks as if one guy really got hammered for asking a similiar question. But, please be gentle its my first post.

I have a 2009 E90 M3 with the 19" factory wheels (style 220M) . I know its a M3 probably not worthy of replica wheels, but I need a temp / spare wheel to use just to get the car to the garage. I'd like to get a replica style 220M for temp use. The original has a 3" nail the size of Texas in it. My very first mod. The tire sealent kit is not going to work on this hole.

Any idea where to get a replica wheel or a used original one somewhere?

My next fear is where to take it to get the repair done. The car only has 2000 miles on it and I don't need the wheels scratched!

Maybe you can find someone local to you that can lend you a wheel for a day...check the regional section.

Check your local BMW dealerships, as they tend to have an assortment of different wheels in the service bay/shop area.

My local dealer could open a separate BMW OEM tire & wheel shop with all the random OE wheels they have on huge racks in the back of their shop.

I bought a E46 3-series sedan tire/wheel a couple of years ago (to use as a spare tire for the M), and a replacement E36 M3 wheel from them about 8 years ago.

Don't forget or overlook this local resource.
