Need a Wheel!

Hi all, Well... I did a major brake job a while back. I wasn't totally confident that I chased-out all the air in the lines so, thinking it was a simple enough task for any shop, I let my guard down and took it to a local chain service center. All seemed fine - until I put the car up recently to check on things. I could hardly break the lug-nuts free. After some doing I was relieved to get them all off without incident and then I had the thought. "What about the wheels?" And, wouldn't you know it one of the rears was cricked. See Pic.

After I cooled down a bit, I took it to the shop - They appeared to be understanding and accepted responsibility even offering to replace it. Well, that's the problem, I said, it could be hard to find one of these. The Wheel is a chrome OZ AMG 3piece. Size 17x10 date stamped 1993.

Is anyone hanging onto a single or know of anyone who'd sell a single wheel? Please feel free to PM me with any details.

Thank you all

Don't have one of these but have a PSA: I have a blue torque rod (~75 ft/lbs) that is 1/2" on both ends. When my car goes in for wheel work, I take the torque rod for 1. to make sure that they use it to put my bolts back in and 2. Make them realize I'm cognizant of what needs to be done and a bare impact gun is not what they're going to use.

So far, so good.

Good luck finding that rim!!
