Default Stock Wheel Question

Hi All,
I recently put a wheel for sale in the classifieds here ('08-'09 left front) and have had no replies. My question is: are these wheels still wanted or would I be better off just recycling it? I'm not trying to sell it here I just need the IS F community to let me know your thoughts on this. The wheel is from my '09 ISF that I purchased CPO in '10. Apparently, it had two left wheels due to an undisclosed accident it had in the past (I had both front bearings replaced under warranty for this). Anyway, traded it in for a new '12 (much better suspension) and replaced that with a '13 C63 AMG sedan in '14 (new and very good deal). Your help is much appreciate.

Think this is key to why you can't sell just one of them.

Even in terms of having a spare, the fact these are specific to each corner means you would need a set to cover replacement of whichever wheel got wrecked.

You might be lucky and find an owner who wrecks their left front, but it could take a while!

I'd hold off recycling it though. Dealers still demand a lot of cash for them!

Yea, I agree that a set would be ideal, but the reason for only the left front is that it was originally the right side front of my '09. When I discovered this I talked to the dealer but they were of no help so I called the Lexus 800 number and they said they would pay 50% of the cost to rectify this. Hence, I have this left front wheel which is , of course, directional for '08 and '09. Thanks for your input though. It is much appreciated.
