OUCH! I just destroyed my wheel :( HELP....

I was on my way this morning to a substitute teaching job and i hit a pothole and bent and cracked my wheel. I just bought this car it has 18" ADR RSL Valkyrie 4 bolt wheels. Does anybody have any idea where I could get a replacement?

this is the wheel:



this was the only site I could find that even showed it. anybody have a good idea on where to find one? I'm really bummed, because I don't want to have to replace all 4 wheels, i can't really afford that.


any ideas would be helpful. now I have to go teach the rest of the day and look forward to putting my doghnut on after school...where is the jack supposed to be on a zx3?

You could also look into getting it repaired, I had a rim repair shop fix one of mine when i hit a pot hole. The rim was bent in at least two inches and had a hairline fracture across the whole front of the rim, now you can't even tell that it was damaged. I'm putting them to the true test now with fixing a true pait of magnesium wheels off my 56. If you've ever welded magnesium you know how hard this is, magnesium likes to burn when it is welded.
