Bent Rim

I bent my rim on my 2014 GS and a new wheel is $1600 and a new rim is $660. I found Kelly Moss in San Jose who trues BMW wheels for $200. Kelly's been doing wheels for 30 years and only works Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Seems BMW wheels are hard to do and finding someone to do them is tough!

Woody's Wheels is another option and I can vouch for their work.

Going to war without France is like going hunting without bagpipes, you just leave a lot of noisy useless baggage at home.

I checked with Woody and they quoted me $200 too, but freight a killer plus they were suggesting their own narrower rim stating it was stronger for $1200 and it may well be. New OEM wheel is $1600.
