    Just crunched a rear wheel on a curb. Anyone have a spare rear wheel for sale?

    Thanks,

    There are three styles and different paints for each.

    The forged wheels are directional so we need to know right or left. And I think there were 2 different styles of forged wheels. Any pics?

    Do you have a pic of the damaged wheel? I had two bent rims on my dodge viper gts that I sent to this place in PA (see link below,) with great results. I actually sent them all 4 rims, as the other 2 had curb rash on them. They all came back perfect. I was quite impressed. Fully repaired, repolished, re-powdercoated in clear. If you send them a pic, they will tell you if it's too far gone or if it looks like something they can do. And they'll give you an estimate too. (Mine were $150 each plus shipping, which I thought was really cheap.) I don't know where you are located, but in the NE, this is the place to go. I'm sure there are many such places on the west coast....

    Thanks for the tip. Problem is I use the Roadster every day, so I will need a wheel while it is being repaired. Great idea though. I will probably send them the damaged wheel for repair.

    Thanks.

    This thread:
    directional wheels
    seems to indicate that (nearly) all combinations of orientations have been seen on Roadsters.
