I'm looking for a Sparco Pista wheel - help needed with UK shipping



They mount my snow tires. I bent one badly on a pothole, now I can't find a replacement. It appears that Sparco has discontinued this size. (17"x7", 4x114.3 bolt pattern).

I have looked on ebay and various cities for C-List, any other ideas?

Thanks guys

Update - I found one on Ebay in the UK, but they won't ship to the US.

Is there anyone near Gateshead who could help me with shipping this, or does anyone know how I can arrange shipping/customs on my own?

Thanks!

Tire Rack shows 17" Sparco Pista wheels for sale. Not sure of the width

the last review on TireRack isn't very encouraging. That person had the same problem you have...with each wheel. Maybe think about taking this as a sign.

That should be repairable for under $200.

I was thinking Subaru but the sti bolt pattern is 5 x 114.3

I took it to the Wheel Collision Center (top notch for repair around here) - they can't fix it.

So I have 3 nearly new wheels...

I was trying to find a used set of oem wheels but wheels that fit over the JCW brakes aren't easy to find.

So - found Forward2me with a Google search. I bought the wheel from the UK seller for $75 and had it shipped to me for $90. It's brand new and perfect, for about the same price I would have paid here if I had found one.
Back to 4 snow tires this winter.
