Default Help me chose a set of aftermarket wheels...

Well like the old saying goes... if itís too good to be true... I just replaced tires with a fresh new set. They informed me that my front passenger rim was damaged from the inside lip and would need to be replaced. I contacted my local jaguar dealer and was quoted $1100 for 1 rim, non chromed. I might as well get some nice sport rims instead. I was thinking of 20 inch but wide in the rear or possibly 22 inch. I like the flush with fender look. Hereís a pic of the rim and also the type of rim/look that I am searching for. I welcome any and all suggestions



Iíve never seen damage this bad

You're asking for trouble if you want wheels that stick out past the tires. A mild curb-rash would be horrendous on those in the top picture.
Also since you asked for suggestions.......
I personally try to avoid wheels with intricate details such as fake rim bolts and such, as they only add immensely to the time it takes to clean them. Give me sleek and uncluttered wheels every time.

ALSO, if you avoid paying $1100 for one wheel by purchasing four at $700 each I don't see the benefit in that.

I've had worse than that on an aftermarket alloy wheel I had on my old Lexus (hit two potholes on the same night, with the same wheel, the wheel was no longer in production, so I couldn't get a replacement).
Find a good wheel repair shop, they can fix it (I ran for 7 years on the fixed wheel, until I gave the car away, but I still have the wheels).
Is there an Alloy Wheel Repair Specialists location near you? Can't remember now if that's who did the work for me or not, but it only took them a day. Drop off one day, picked up the next.

Looks repairable as I don't see any cracks. A good shop can repair them. Some shops may already have the same wheel in stock that has been repaired. Do a little web searching. Good luck.

What are your priorities? Strength, appearance, weight, price, width? The new florforged/flowformed wheels are a pretty outstanding value - a significant portion of the benefits of forged, while being much more affordable. I'm looking at these for whenever I finally manage to get an XKR in the garage.

Priorities are a flush look with the fenders, wider in rear(thinking 11 inch or 12). Price, not to outrageous

Check with Stokes Tire in Santa Monica for wheel repair. I have used them in the past. They have good sources for things that they are not capable of doing themselves.

Put me with the Get It Fixed group. If you are happy with your current wheels, you've nothing to lose by asking a wheel repair shop if it is fixable.

Jaguar offers really beautiful wheels designs OEM, you don't find one of them appealing?

The OPís wheel appears to be a Senta, one of the best looking wheels for a X150 (IMHO), thatís why I think he should get it fixed.
But he also mentioned wanting a wider wheel.
Even if he finds something to his liking, fix the current wheel and sell the set, it will offset the cost of the new wheels, and someone else can enjoy the OEMs.
