Hi guys.

First of all I'll introduce myself, this is my first post on the forum, it looks like a great place.

Hello. :lol:

On to the problem at hand.

Recently I cracked my front drivers side rim, I'm scratching my head as to when it happened but I must have hit a pot hole or something? :oops:

Anyway here is the wheel in question.

An 18 inch Ford rim (I believe they're from an XR8)

My lovely BF2 Fairmont Ghia in Ego.

The wheel in question is drivers side front.

Any idea where I can pick up another of this type, or whether Ford still sells it or what this rim model is called?

For academic purposes, here is the crack in question -

Would really appreciate some help, thanks guys!!

Ok so after calling around, I found the model no.

It's a 5R291007MA.

Brand new it's like $1000 :shock: Little surprised.

Called 3 wreckers with no luck.

Could get it repaired?

Anyone think that particular crack looks too nasty to repair? Any opinions?

I'd just keep trying wreckers who specialize in Fords. There are some places out the who repair cracks in rims.
