Default Hit A Pothole, Need New Wheel.

Well last night I was on a country road and hit huge pothole that was on the edge of the road. I got out and looked initially and everything was ok, but by the time i got back home, the back right tire was pretty much flat. Got the wheel off this morning and the inside lip of the rim is bent pretty significantly.

So any ideas where I can look for a new stock rim (245/45R18) other than the dealership?

I would check craigslist. Might be hard to find one, buy you might find a set cheap enough to make it worth your while.

post a picture of whats wrong with your wheel.

and yeah, salvage yards will more than likely have one for you.

and that style wheel, the stock 2007/08 SE wheel only comes in one size. 18" so i wouldn't worry about size.

Im hoping i will be able to get it fixed, because its not cracked anywhere. I dont have a camera so ill try and describe the bend the best i can. Its bend badly enough that the inside of the lip of the wheel is curled back some and the width of the wheel is raised slightly to about 2 inches into the width. Im looking down at the wheel with the nissan logo pointed to the ground. Idk if this makes any sense but it was worth a try

Its pretty close to that, maybe slightly worse. But its on the opposite side of the wheel, you wouldnt be able to see any damage with the wheel on the car.
