1989 325ic Wheels

We hardly ever drive this car after getting it back from our daughter a couple of years ago. Took it in to see why there is so much vibration at certain speeds. Uh, how about three bent wheels? Duh! Yeah, I think that will do it. I've been driving for over 45 years and have never bent a wheel. Ok, let's not go there.

Anyway, can anyone turn me on to a good place to look for replacement wheels? $$ is a concern as we are going to sell the car. We've put about $4,000 into the car in the last year and don't drive it so why keep it when someone else could be enjoying it?

Know of any good wheel sources to check out? Thanks for your help.

Aloha

You can try any self serve salvage yard/junk yard, you can get the wheels for about 15 bucks a pop. You can also find some with tire on them for an additional cost. I feel this is the best source, the salvage yard is where all the ebay sellers get their stuff.
Check it out. I hope this helps.
