Help!? Can anybody in the Tacoma area lend me a front rim/tire for a week or two?

I have a leak in one of my front OEM bridgestone tires (e92 335i sports package 225/40/18). I was in the process of trying to purchase a set of VMR VB3s or V715s and got my TPMS warning 2 days ago. I'm afraid to drive the car on the leak for another two weeks or so until I'd get the rims and prefer not to go spend 200 bucks on a tire/mounting to drive for that short period. I was going to see if somebody had a spare front tire mounted on a 189 rim that I could borrow until my rims came. I know Discount Tire will bolt rims on/off for free (unless you have someplace else you'd rather do it).

If not I'm probably just gonna pay for a full new set of tires now and put the rim purchase off til later

Preferrably somebody in the Tacoma area as I don't wanna drive to Seattle/Bellevue on the tire. I can give a refundable deposit while I borrow the rim if necessary.

Ahh that sux. I didn't get a chance to call anywhere today either...anybody know any places that will patch runflats in the Tacoma Area? Does firestone or anyone do it? I guess I didn't check that...thought i heard you're not allowed to patch runflats. And if you can, any idea of how much it costs?

PM sent James. Phreak I'll let you know if patching it or borrowing from James doesn't work out. But I don't know if I'd have a chance to get up to Bellevue and wouldn't want to make you drive all the way down here.
