Lovely jersey pothole has crippled one of my rims, and I do not feel comfortable driving on it. Hoping by some small chance that someone in the local area has one or a set they are looking to unload so I don't need to wait a week to buy elsewhere. If you know of any junkyards that have a cougar sitting in them, that would be helpful too...

haha I bent AND cracked the front passenger side rim last weekend! unreal these damn potholes are. I've been driving on it since, but, like you, I don't feel too safe. I lost two auctions on ebay for one new wheel, or a set of 4 polished ones. I guess I'll keep looking there. My dad said there's this place on Route 21 in Newark, if you're going Route 21 South, and you end up on McCarter Highway, there's a huge yellow building that has rims from old cars, kinda like a 'rim-junkyard', maybe i'll check it out.

hey do you know the name of it? Or exactly where it is? Like is it on Route 21 or do I have to take some sidestreets to get to it? You think they'd have to order the rim? thanks..
