Default Purchasing Factory Wheels

I need to purchase a chrome wheel for my 1995 Lexus SC400. It's a 16 inch and my service writer at Lexus of Austin has encouraged me to use the dealer as a last resort. Do you any of you know where I can pick one of these puppies up at a discount? I've got a wheel where the chrome is chipping off on the seal and my tire goes flat every 2 weeks. The dealership has already applied a bead sealer, but it's not holding. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Tried eBay, but all they seem to have at the moment are the chrome wheel "kits."

However, thanks for the reply!

Try this national junk yard parts database: www.car-part.com

It's a start. . .

You can always call Carson Toyota (PM name: supratrd) www.carsontoyota.com to get some baseline discount pricing as well (about 20% off retail).
