Wheel Accident..

Hello,
Today I accidentally drove my front right wheel across a curb and scuffed it rather badly. There are about 8" of scuffs and a few gouges. It is the 17 inch 5 spoke wheel

Any idea where I can get a new one and how much?

Thanks.

To make sure it is an exact fit there is a number like A2114011902 on the inside of the wheel. That number is your wheel style #. So you may want to pull the wheel off and check for a similar number.
From there tracking down a quality reman OE wheel should be pretty easy for under $200.
Here is an example of one reseller.

There are places that can repair the damage as well. Do a google search for wheel repairs in your area & you should find something.

Do you think it could be fixed?

I just got the part number off of EPC net - A 212 401 59 02, Can't seem to find it anywhere online, only on eBay and the only listing is almost $400 for one that is remanufactured.

Those scratches can be easy filled up with bondo and wheel repainted, but you should check it for dents.
Is this Polish-made wheel? Take a look inside.
I have 2 of those for sale and for good price, but from the angle they look different

The scratches along the top are dents and the large scuff is an indentation, not too, too deep, but it's there. I have no idea if it's Polish made, where would I look?

Thanks.

Definitely. In my area the painless dent guys advertise this service & some wheel shops also. I think I've seen it advertised on Craigslist too.

Inside each wheel you have molded numbers.
-MB part number
-brand
-manufacturer country
-size

I think my wheels are different than the ones you have for sale. How does the cost of repairing it compare with the cost of a new wheel?

Thanks.
