Help! Blown Blizzak and Rial Salerno.

Hi All,

I blew my wheel (Rial Salerno and Bridgestone Blizzak WS-70) few days ago and would like to get one ASAP so I don\'t have lug around in my beater but tire rack can\'t get it to couriered to me next day. Best they can do is 27th dec.

I can\'t seem to find other e-tailers who carry that wheel.

Does anyone know where I could order one?

Thanks all.

Thanks

Try looking on the manufacturer's website for local dealers.

When I bent one of mine and needed it replaced, I couldn't find a local retailer who had it in stock. Discount tire had to order it from tire rack. The good news is that it was delivered in 2 days, not the quoted 5.

Just checked discount tire and seems like they are not listing Rial is one of the wheel manufacturer they sell.

Thanks though.

Thanks all for your help.

Local Indy shop managed to take me in .. in a hurry.. where dealers won't touch it for weeks He had so many cars lined up but took me in and put the car up on hoist immediately.

So far: Wheel (Expected) + Tie Rods (Changed both just for sake of it) + Alignment + Lots of Prayers !

Alignment results won't come in till tomorrow and then we will find out if there is any subframe issues.

Fingers crossed!

Update: so in the end it was the bent tie rod that got messed up real good and the Indy also said that the wheel took most of the damage and all other front suspension components looked good.

I decided to change both tierods, confirmed steering rack is all good, no frame issues found after alignment, and Indy also did bunch of test drives and all is well now.

Tomorrow Rial WS70 should arrive from TireRack (thanks again Gary!) just in time and I should be good to go.

Thanks for helping everyone!

Merry Xmas and happy new year

Hi Folks:

Finally last night I got the 335 back and drives and steers butter smooth after both tie rods were replaced and fresh alignment was done. All DSC and ABS/BRAKE warnings have disappeared and I am back to where I started

Gary@TR managed to get the wheel in 2 days so I am back on the road!

Total Tally: $400 (alignment/front left & right tie rods) + $300 (new wheel Rial Salerno + WS70)

Hope this will help future pot hole pounders and curb rashers in calming down after the incident because sometimes it looks worse then i really may be

Merry Xmas and Happy New Year to ya all!
