Need help, I Just purchased a CPO 2008 535i and wheel is cracked

Last Friday I purchased a Certified Pre-Owned 2008 535i and I just figured out that the back right wheel has a crack in it. The tire sensor came on so I took it to the dealer and they took a look at it and told me the wheel was cracked. The dealer said that they would take care of getting a new wheel and that they would also have it chromed as my other wheels are chrome. The dealer agreed that the new chromed wheel would probably not match properly so they offered to have them powder coated black. I was happy with that idea and so the wheels were sent of to be powder coated only to then be told that they could not be powder coated unless the chrome was stripped off first as there were a few marks in the rims from the previous owner. I told them to then just give me the money for the rim and chrome and I would just get some replica wheels, but it sounds like they may only give me $500-550 for it. I am trying to spend no money out of pocket and I feel like it is there problem to fix.

Does any one have any suggestions as to what I should do (raise hell at the dealership)? What I should demand? Or any other ideas?
It currently has 18" wheels with brand new run flats.

This isn't really your problem. Tell the dealer that they just need to come up with a solution that is mutually agreeable and everyone will be happy.
