    My husband just ran my poor MINI over a very large pot hole. Damaged one of the wheels beyond repair.
    I found a new one for $327 out of Georgia, but I thought I would see if there is a used one out there that someone might be willing to sell.....or even a better deal on a new one.
    Hate to put the winter 16s back on, but really don't have a choice. The sooner I can have those sexy 18s back on her the better.

    fix that one!

    That wheel is easily repaired-google wheelsamerica in your area or look for who does wheel repairs. Any bodyshop of any size will be sending wheels in for repair so check with a bodyshop.

    Welcome, thanks for joining Motoring Alliance, the FUN and Friendly MINI Community.

    http://www.wheelmedic.com/ here in Columbus is very good. If it can be repaired they can do it.

    Thanks for the feedback. I checked out eminiparts and they look like a good source. Put the 16s back on today. Going to keep up my search a bit longer before I commit to a new wheel. Not holding my breath though.

    Funny thing happened though. My key has been missing for about 6 months looked high and low for it. Haven't invested in a new one since my husband's key was still around. Today while getting the tools to change the wheels, low and behold I move a box and find my key. I guess the MINI gods realize $300 is all I can afford to put into my MINI at this point.

    Welcome to M/A! Don't forget to check out eBay for your wheel, as well. I have always been able to find something used or new there that did not require the purchase of a complete set.

    There is a new one listed there today with free shipping from New Jersey.
