One of my wheels has a slight "pothole" bend in it and I am wondering if I should worry about it or not. I can get it repaired/refinished for $100.00, but that is the price of a new rim, right? Does anyone have any '04 6 spoke wheels for sale?

All I can say is the day you hit even a moderate pot hole or bump in the road, chances are that replica stuff is going to bend and you will fight to keep the wheel from wobbling.

Save up and buy a good used set of genuine wheels , or buy the replicas with the idea in mind you will change them in the next two to three years.

I'm lost as to where this replica wheel talk came in.

in any case, if it's going to cost that much to fix it, i'd buy a new rim. if the bent one isn't too bad, as in it'll still hold air pretty well, keep it around in case something ever happens, or maybe as a full size spare. but $100 for repairs? just buy a new rim. my opinion anyways.

norcal,
I wish your dealer were closer...that is a good price. For the price, I am going to go new and keep a full size spare around.
Thanks,
Dan
