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.

have you tried looking on ebay or craigslist on used ones?

I think it's a little less than that through Sewell Lexus, isn't it?

I had a cracked wheel (a 19" that runs 30-profile tires) repaired at Wheels America last fall for about $100. It was on the inside edge, so they didn't have to refinish it--think it would have added another $1-200 if they had. They have locations all over the place, might be worth a look.

just Google "wheel repair in XXXXX, FL"

cheaper than an ebay wheel....

prob not worth it but wheel wizard in atlanta is unreal at fixing about any rim damage for less than a new one (but shipping would probably hurt a lot). maybe call 'em and ask for the best in FL.

do u have the 17" wheel or the 18" sport wheel? chrome or just regular alloy finish?

If fixing isn't an option, I'd just go to a good after market rim source (like TireRack) and get a whole set of nicer wheels for less than that $680. Updated look. Unique.
