    Hi, I just bought a 599 and broke a front wheel. It’s a 20” monolithic (challenge style wheel) painted in silver. Two places confirmed that it can't be repaired. Does anyone know where I can get one? Thanks.

    Hi,

    That sounds like bad luck... I hope the kerb didn’t jump out and hit you ;)
    I personally wouldn’t risk a repair on a wheel for a high performance vehicle such as a 599 if the wheel has actually cracked or been compromised in any way.

    I would just start searching the internet. I have seen them on ebay from various sources as people trade them in for other aftermarket wheels. You could try Eurospares in the UK. I bought a couple from them in the past for a reasonable price.

    Thanks, I called Chris. He has a set for sale which he won't split up. I just bought the car and was driving it home when I hit a pothole and broke the wheel. I'm hoping my luck changes and I'll never need the other three. ;)

    Thanks - hoping to find one domestically before going overseas.

    I did the same thing. Bought a single front wheel from Ricambi, though this was 2 - 3 years ago. Good luck. (Mine could not be repaired either. Makes great wall art thought!)

    Thanks. Ricambi has it listed on their site. I'm going to call them tomorrow to confirm that it's new and ready to ship out.

    Thanks for the link and I appreciate the good karma you’re sending my way. Aside from the pothole, it was a great trip home from Ohio to NY and I love the car! My preference is to find a new wheel, if not then this is a great backup.
