Buckled Wheel

Hi There,
I had a bit of bad luck on holiday in Ireland, involving a large pot hole resulting in a badly bent wheel, Alfa want 500 for one which seems a bit steep, I am told by Enzo at Autocassa That a copy will cost 200, or there abouts, Does anyone know if they are any good, or where I can get a cheaper O/E one, or maybe second hand any help will be much appreciated, Thanks

Depending on how badly damaged the wheel is, some companies are able to straighten them. Might be worth asking around a bit before splashing the cash on a new one. If it can't be fixed, try asking Autolusso or maybe Veloces as they may be able to supply a replacement.

Can you post a pic of the wheel. I have two which are sitting in my mechanics work shop as I have no space for them. Found them in the boot when I bought the car. Mine have circles if that's any help.

I've a brand new 17" Alfa Sport wheel, which I was going to put on Ebay today.

Its pukka, stamped both Alfa and Speedline, I bought it for this type of issue, but the Alfas has gone and it won't fit the FIAT!

I'm sure we can negotiate a reasonable deal, assuming its the right wheel

At a guess it's a Ti alloy as they are/were 500 a pop for the ones with the Ti embossed logo. That's why when mine got buckled I swapped them for a set of 17 inch Selespeed wheels which i got with tyres for 150 !!
