WTB Foregline RS wheel to complete set or sell 3 wheels

I have a set of Forgeline RS wheels 8 x 17 and 9.5 x 17 that were on my 86 944 Turbo. I developed a crack in the 9.5 rear wheel. I think this is a long shot but, I am looking for a replacement if anyone has one they are willing to sell. The wheel is 9.5 wide with 6' backspacing.

If I can't find a replacement and someone is looking for three wheels to complete a set that they may have, please PM me, I would be willing to let the three go.

Where is the crack? I see the tape mark on the one wheel... is the crack on the spoke? That's quite odd if so. If the crack is on the lip or the barrel, it can be repaired.

I may be interested in the set, if you don't mind selling all 4 of them (yes even the cracked one)... send me a PM with a close-up of the crack if you don't mind.

Thanks!

The crack is in the barrel. It runs radially parallel to the weld joint between the center and the barrel. It isn't visible but was quite obvious when we put the wheel and tire in a water bath.

I contemplated having it welded but was concerned with heat changing the properties of the aluminum and making it more brittle.
