Help locating a replica wheel!

I apologize if this is posted in the wrong section, however I felt like I may have better luck with the e36 crowd rather than the WTB crowd.

I found out that one of my style 67 m3 replica wheels has a small crack on the inner edge. I have never noticed the wheel leaking air, but had new tires installed today and the crack was pointed out to me. Basically, I am having an impossible time locating this particular wheel. I only need one. I found out that there were possibly 3 manufacturers that made this style replica: Detroit, Topline, and Panther.

I have attempted to call just about every online store in the United States that Google turned up for the Detroit brand wheel (Detroit DM3), and nobody had anything, not even the supplier warehouses.

I cannot turn up anything about Topline and saw the Panther brand is chrome on eBay from 1 seller.

The wheel is Gunmetal or Hyperblack in color with a machined lip, 17x8 inch and fits an e36 3-series.

If someone could even turn up a silver/polished one, I would take it. Used, new, I don't care. I don't think I can do chrome.

Any help finding this wheel would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you.

Thanks for the link. I saw this place yesterday but couldn't find anything on their newer website. I think the link you posted may be outdated. I tried to call the number and just got a message telling me to email someone at Tulip City Wheels, so I did. I am awaiting a response but I will keep you posted.

In the mean time, if anyone else has any other leads at all please let me know. Thanks.
