Default Anyone Know Where to Get a Replacement Wheel?

I picked up this 2012 TT S-line Roaster last week and one of the wheels is curb rashed all to hell. Anyone have one of these wheels laying around? I think they're pretty rare as the reconditioned ones on eBay are still $450 and up. $850 at the dealer. 2012 TT

You could try getting the rashed wheel repaired. I had my OZ Ultraleggeras refinished by Alloy Wheel Repair Specialists over behind the BMW dealership off McNeil. Probably run you about $155ish per wheel.

Give Mark Repella a call: 512-426-7611

Yup I used him also a few years ago. There isn't a lot of options for wheel repair in Austin.

Tommie over at North Austin recommended a guy that will come to you and condition it. He's coming on Tuesday. If it goes well, I'll post his info.

Thanks for the input!

He did a really good job. Didn't take him long to make the trashed wheel look almost new. I went ahead and had him take the small amount of rash out of the other 3 wheels while he was there. Charged me $200 for all 4. Seemed like a fair deal.

His name is Gilbert Blair. 832-298-1097 if any of you want to use him. Most of his business is with car dealers all over town, fixing wheels before they put used cars up for sale.

I'm quite happy with his work!
