2008 2.4 LT (~76000 miles): Steel Rim and Cover Replacement
Son up in Massachusetts kept losing air in his front passenger wheel. I wasn't up there, so I told him to turn it outward, spray with water, and find the nail, screw, or tack. Maybe he could install a plug without even removing the wheel. He couldn't find it. So I was just up there visiting and we got to it on my last day. Pulled the wheel off, no sign of any nail, screw, or tack - but the lip of the steel rim was bent in three places! Yikes!! He was a bad parallel parker when he first moved up there, but he's really good now. Too late for this rim - the granite curbs killed it, and now it's leaking through the bead seal.
So he needs a new rim. Couldn't get to a junkyard before leaving, so we'll just order one online (along with the cheap chrome bolt-on cover).
Any recommendations for sourcing these two things online? It's just a steel rim, but I'd like it to match and, of course, be straight and true. Ebay vendors will just be junkyards, right?
