    bent stock 07 wheels

    Got a flat tire on my new 07 wrx last friday. The stock tire cost $250. The subaru dealer said they couldn't balance my wheel because it was bent. A new wheel costs $450. Any one have any leads or experience with companies that straighten wheels in the Los Angeles area.

    There you go, OEM rim for 179 shipped. (Its the top one, 17'" obviously) Dude honestly **** that, 450 for a new rim, you can get good after market ones for 725 shipped.

    Yup I'd look around here or nasioc for someone selling their stock wheels. I think 06's are the same in which case you should be able to find them pretty easily. Someone might not want to sell 1 out of a set but you never know. I wouldnt pay subaru that much money for a stock wheel. You can have a good set for a few hundred more. I got a set of 4 BBS STI wheels with mounted tires for 800.

    I got 3 rota slipstream rims. You can buy the fourth rim from subiedude.com for bout $100 to $150. They're dark grey. Give me like $120 for the 3 rims. I know where you can get Dunlop Direzza's for like $460installed and balanced. 4 tires.
