New Wheel needed

So here's the thing:

I've managed to knacker up one of the wheels on my 147 - the other day I hit a pot hole really hard.

I was already planning to go to get a slow puncture fixed so I asked my local car fixers to re-balance the front wheels - and the one that hit the hole had a massive dint in the inner rim - I think I'm lucky it didn't blow the tyre out or break the suspension which seems to be fine.

The blokes in the tyre shop managed to beat it nearly round - but the wheel s going to need replacing -to go with the 225 I just spent on a pair of new Dunlops. Does anyone know where I'm going to get one of those from relatively inexpensively? (I'm already searching that e-bay place and I have one or two breakers yards in mind...)

It's a 17" three hole alloy (standard on 02 147 2.0 Lussos I'm told) I think I uploaded a picture of the type I'm looking for
