Looking for BSA wheel replacement

I have a set of BSA wheels on my Boxster. I bent a rear wheel and it’s been “fixed” but, I get severe road vibration over 75mph. I’m looking for a rear replacement. One of the selling points to the wheels was that the guy kept replacements if you were to bend one or something. Well, now I can’t find the guy whom I bought them from. Does anyone know someone who sells BSA wheels, I think they were the 215 series. The rear lip on mine are 2 1/2” and the fronts are 1/2” lip.

Here’s a pic of my wheels.



Shows the rear lip.

The track claimed my rear wheel. Well the track and my not so expert driving.

I'm currently looking for a replacement. Color, cosmetic condition (not bent), things like that don't bother me, as long as it's straight. If I don't find what I'm after soon I may have 3 wheels up for sale and just buy a new set of wheels from a manufacturer that will continue to make them or keep spares. Just sucks sitting on a set of wheels with one gone bad.

I had to resort to putting my stock wheels back on for the time being.

Lol! We have all done some silly things on the track...the results are usu better than on the street if you think about it.

Sorry to hear the replacement bsa's aren't avail anymore as I really do like them on my car...perfect offset/stance/lip. GL on your search.

Are your bsa's factory black or did you plastidip or powder coat them?
