Hi,

Perhaps try some of the wheel dealers who keep these items in stock and hope that they do sell single wheels? chances of that are quite low though as they like to sell these kinds of wheels in sets - hopefully you'll get lucky there. If not, then you've got to trawl through the classifieds on the various BMW forums, keep checking Ebay to see if a wheel comes up. If not, then you might have to buy another set. You then run the same high risk of another cracked/bent wheel as replica wheels are the weakest, lowest quality option when it comes to wheel choices. Based on that, you might be back in this same scenario the following week again after getting another set. That said, you might not be, but it's just the likelihood is increased.

I'd say it's best to save up a little more and purchase higher quality wheels which are stronger and better resist dings, cracks and bends.

Cheers, Dennis!
