Wanted: (1) Wheel 18x8 V.E. Lemans Blk

My parts car had a hit to the left front that destroyed one wheel (not repairable). The other three have some curb rash on them, but are still pretty decent. I am looking for a 4th wheel that will match the three good ones.
Here's the bad one:


It's an 18x8 Victor Equipment Lemans, Gloss Black with mirror cut lip.

I have seen them as low as $260 shipped for a new one and I might go with that. If anyone has one used or a pair of 18x8s that are very close, I'd rather do that.

My black '99 would really like these for Christmas.

One bump for a used wheel or similar pair, before I pull the trigger at $280 for one new wheel to go with 3 old wheels.

Have you looked into getting it fixed by a wheel repair company? Damage doesn't look that bad and they might be able to fix it for cheaper?

When I first bought the car (online) I though the wheel might be salvageable:



In person I found out otherwise:

It can be fixed however if you can get a new wheel $260 I would just do that. I bought a 01 boxster with the same damage to the passenger side. However My wheels are discontinued and hard to find. It ended up costing 425 to repair the wheel.

Wow, that is quite a repair and nice wheels. I think that I am going to go ahead and buy the new one and just clean/polish the 3 old ones to 'like new'.

There's a 2000 S going up for auction on IAA in Iowa that looks to have those same wheels. Iowa lets you buy from the auctions without a license.

That's not going to buff out. I bet they are just leaving it open to the weather too. It does look like maybe 4 good wheels though.
