    Does anyone have a suggestion for wheel repair or replacement? Replaced the front tires on my '05 F430 and found one of the wheels to be bent. The wheel has no scrapes - looks perfect until on the balancer. New wheel on Ricambi is $1600.

    Thanks for your help.

    Curious what you ended up doing on this? I have just replaced all four tires at TireRack and they said the fronts are bent, one being worse than the other. He showed it to me on the tire balancer. The car itself, when driving, absolutely has no hint of it being bent. In a perfect world, there would be someone out there that took the wheels in a core exchange scenario; you pay for the new/refurbished wheels, they send them to you, once you get them you send back yours, they refund you a certain amount for yours.

    Thanks for the suggestions gents! Surprisingly, I found that my "go to" local shop will actually take care of this for me in 24 to 48 hours.
