Does anyone have a spare/old unused 99 Boxster style wheel?

I am looking for a rear 17 inch Boxster style wheel as mine contains alot of scratches. It does not have to have a tire or center cap on it. Iam looking for one in better condition then mine. Please let me know if anyone is looking to part with one. I can pay via money order,paypal etc. That wheel in the picture is not mine,its just an example to let you guys know what Iam looking for.

Why buy one when you can buy 4 of mine?
I'm wanting to sell my set but parting with one would make me look quite silly on the road.

I could buy your one from you and you could sell the three others on ebay.

You can re-finish yours for cheap and it's not very difficult, especially if the scratches don't go into the metal. You can fix scratches and digs in the metal too, but it takes a little more effort and time. The Wurth wheel paint matches the original color perfectly and it's what I'm using to re-finish my free, scratched & peeling phone dials on the 928. Let me know if you want me to look up the links to the instructions.

If you find one and you're interested in selling your old one, I'd be interested so I could refinish it and have a spare.
