Looking for 189 OEM or Style rear wheel (18x8.5")

Just noticed one of my winter wheels (189's) has a crack when I took them to get the new winter tires put on.

Anyone have a spare rear 189 laying around they are looking to get out of the garage!?

If not, any idea how much (and where) it costs to repair a fracture as pictured below?



Thanks!

-Mark

That rim repair will cost you somewhere between $100-200 to fix. However, IMO, repairing these cracked rims will never be a true fix. Eventually, over time (especially with MD roads), that crack will resurface. I've had my mechanic at BMW (all work done during off hours at BMW - so no stealership costs) advise me against repairing rims...

In any case, good luck with your search. If you're looking for a brand new set altogether, I have OEM 197 rims available sitting around at home. I can sell you 1 wheel, or sell the entire set. I have 7 of these rims sitting around...

Thanks for the advice on avoiding the repair! I'd really like to get the matching wheel vice putting an odd-ball on, so I think I will respectfully regret your offer. Thanks for the thought, though!

Best,

Mark

SE3P_to_E90 I'm looking for an extra set of wheels and am wondering if you have a staggered set in the 7 197s you have? I'm too new to PM but you can email me at Thanks.
