Need a 220 front rim. Good deals out there?

Had a bubble in my front tire, changed all 4 ( needed anyway ) then BMW found it bent. Getting some shaking in the steering so I guess I need to replace.

Anyone know where to get an OEM wheel? I'd rather not pay 1000 from dealer.

Not sure its worth it to repair it. Heard a fixed bent rim makes them less strong?

Thanks guys!

just get the wheel fixed, no need for a new one. im sure you can find a rim shop around your area.

Just watch around the classifieds. You should be able to get a rim for $200.

I wouldn't recommend this route. You will be left with a weaker wheel. Not worth it to save a few hundred IMO. I would buy a used wheel or wheel-set from the for-sale section or a new OEM wheel from one of the many venders sponsoring this forum.
