SO from what I thought was a leaky TMPS turned out to be a cracked wheel (rim) ANYONE HAVE A FRONT RIM LAYING AROUND FOR SALE ... i WOULD EVEN GET A REAR ONE TOO IF IT WERE AVAILABLE ... BUT DEFINITELY NEED A FRONT ONE (sob !)
I have a complete set. I drifted into a curb doing doughnuts and took a chunk out of the passenger side rear. Costly mistake as I had to replace the rear axle cradle. I replaced all 4 with factory OEM and I am unsure of the condition of the other 3. If I remember they only might have some slight curb rash and I mean very slight. I will sell all 4 if interested.
thanks! I actually got lucky with this one... I searched and found 3 places one in MA, the other way upstate NY (12 hrs away) the other was online I noticed on eBay at a local shop. Called my brother-in-law who is a mechanic and happened to have a relationship with the shop that was local. Mind you the other two were quoting me prices from the one that was found locally. I wound up getting the wholesale $ from the local shop though a brother-in-law (that I dont talk to) OH YEA then I went back to Pep-Boys and they put it on for no cost, because I felt they should have know it was a cracked rim and not a bad TPMS in the first place.
