    My wife dinged front right wheel on curb. Anyone know where I can get one to replace it? It is the 10 spoke alloy wheel for the Prius v 5 atp
    Thanks so much

    I would just leave it. A wheel is not going to be cheap, and it could happen again.

    That is not going to happen. Need new ones.

    It would probably be much more cost effective to have it repaired. They usually do very good work. I think it is about $200.

    I think he's saying that leaving it isn't a option.

    Compare $$ for a new one (dealer) witha repair/refurbished one...ask local used car dealers where they send their wheels for refurbishing...google refurbish shops in your area....hard to decern from new..!!!

    Agreed, eBay is the place to go. Happened on my 07 Accord about 6 months after I got it. Complete curb grind :eek:. Couldn't stand looking at it so I bought a new (to me) rim from eBay. Just make sure you pick a reputable seller.

    Happened to me too. On top of that, got a bubble on the sidewall of the tire.
