93 940 wagon alloy wheel

Found the rear passenger side alloy wheel severely bent on the inside.
Strangely there was no leak. If I didn't remove it to change the brake
caliper because of the stuck piston I found last week, I never would
have noticed it.

Now I need to replace the 20 spoke alloy wheel. What's a good source
of these wheels?

You might find one at an upper scale junkyard, but it likely won't be
cheap. Have you looked into getting the wheel repaired? There's a few
places that specialize in fixing damaged alloy wheels, some of them do a
pretty good job.

Found one at a junkyard through

http://www.car-parts.com

For $75 plus $15 shipping. It is B grade. Which means there are some
blemishes but no curb scratches. I was very surprised the tire didn't
leak. The bend was very significant and there is a big gap between the
rim and tire wall. The first thing I did was to pund it in with a 4 lb
hammer. I don't know was it because of my pounding or before I did. I
saw a four inch crack an inch and a half away from the edge in the
circumferential dircetion near the damage. Still tire pressure holds.
At that point I thought it has to be replaced.

Perhaps, though I've seen rims with fairly substantial chunks broken out
of them repaired. They weld in a new section of aluminum, grind it to
shape and then refinish the wheel.
