    My son watched Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift and quickly discovered FWD is difficult to drift and curbs cause lots of damage.  I'm now in the process of replacing most of the passenger side front suspension but need to locate an alloy wheel for a 94 Grand Am GT.  The junkyards seem to pull the wheels as soon as the cars come in and online remanufactured rims are over $230.  Does anyone know of a source for a used cheap OEM alloy wheel?  I'm thinking about posting on Craiglist tonight but I'll need the wheel this weekend!

    http://www.wheelcollision.com/ is a great source, but again... reconditioned and probably more than you want to spend.

     Try LKQ automotive recycling first. 866-266-0097

    Taylors Junkyard pulls them and stores them in an old trailer, you may need to dig but you can find them.

    Thanks for the help, I'll be researching those sites tonight.  So Jeff, did you send me that link for the HOT CHICK or the wheels?  I completely lost my concentration after entering that site. 

    There is also a place in Valley Park called "Alloy Wheel Repair Specialist" but I don't know anything about them.  They said if the rim was repairable it would be around $95.  Hopefully, a 2 inch chunk missing is still considered repairable.  I need to call Taylor's and see what a used one would cost (guessing the cheapest option).  I'm afraid the online businesses will charge a fortune in freight.
