Hey guys, coming home tonite, went to drop my friend off at his house, and boom. Sounded like the world ended. Got out, turns out the rim hit a large piece of the curb sticking out from the ordinary. Bent my rim, scrated the side of it, and left my tire with a gash right through the side. The rim was the 5 star aluminum 16" from a 1st gen SL. If ANYBODY has a rim they can sell me for a decent price, I'd really appreciate someone letting me know. Thanks, now I think I'll go sit in the corner like the retard I am.

:( :( :(

Hopefully someone in this wonderful 3si world will have an extra rim somewhere to sell to a retarded 17 year old.

If not, how long will my donut hold up?

yea, maybe I did exagerate somewhat, but that is what the thing sounded like. And to be honest with ya, being 17, and having to pay for everything, I honestly don't know what the hell I'm going to do. I guess not factoring in accidents into your budget is part of being young. :(

Sorry, I cant help you out with the part, but I am sorry to hear that. Nasty nasty thing to have happen to one of these cars. I bet your going to have a bit sharper eye out for those curbs now. Good luck finding a replacement.

When I was 17 I was driving through snowbanks in my 86 Pontiac 6000:D I only paid 500 bucks for the car, it was a tough bastard though :)

lol, well no offense to any 3s, cause i luv the car, but these thigns are far from tough. More like little wimps if you ask me. Seems like the smallest little problems cost me the most money with this car, yet my friends mustangs and camaro's all run pretty much the way they're suppose to. :\

If you don't like the ebay ones, we do have a classifieds section where you can check, or also ask for the wheels there. If someone is thinking about selling, they'll check there and reply to your post. ;) Good luck!

Thanks for all the help guys, turns out one of the guys at a place I use to work might sell me a nice set of 17" 5 spoke aftermarket rims he has w/ the tires for a cheap price. Hopefully this accident will turn into something good. Thank you for the info.
