Crack in wheel of 2006 LS430 - new wheel is $680
I thought I had a flat tire, only to find out that there is a crack in my wheel. Goodyear (where I bought my tires) told me that they could not repair it and Lexus would have to order a new one. When I called Lexus they said the estimated cost was $680.00. I stopped at Auto Zone, (I'm in Florida) they don't repair wheels and could recommend no one. I am taking it to Lexus next week, since they said there is one tech who could take a look, if it's at the rim, he may be able to fix it, but I'm not counting on that.
Anyone have any advice. The tire is good, the spare is not a perfect wheel and is not an option as a permanent fix.
