Front and Rear Chrome Rim needed: Left Side

Title says it all, I hit a chunk of cement in the road today and fractured two rims, both on the driver's side. I'm in SC. I can drive somewhere half a day maybe, Florida to Georgia, Alabama, NC Virginia maybe. I'm paying this out of pocket at this point, it is a good bet I'm buying a half a set of new tires too.
I'm not really interested in discussing the really bad morning that got me in this fix, But I sure could use a pair of Chrome Rims in a bad way.
Thanks.

Check around at your custom wheel shops. Bent wheels can be straightened even crackers can be welded. I've had one straightened and HAD2HVT, had a bent wheel straightened and welded on his GMC.

I don't think anyone will touch a chromed wheel if it's cracked. The SSR wheel is fully chromed inside and out, not just the face. You would have to strip the chrome first - and it would likely further damage the wheel anyway. Just not worth it.

I didn't find any more listings, but they are out there. But wow are the prices are going up! A few years ago, I bought a complete set of satin wheels with center caps for 1300.

But.... I dont see that you should be swallowing the full cost for this. This would fall under comprehensive coverage on your insurance. It shouldn't count against you like a collision. Then you'd only be out the deductible - assuming it's not astronomically high.

With the way some insurance companies are going, they might want to total your R. lol

Well, the rims are not just bent. Chunks missing. Damn shame, they were flawless. I'm pretty sure they are not in any way repairable. Coffee table, maybe? Yard art? I really have not seen them in the daylight yet, that's my morning surprise. I don't know what I hit in the dark at 40 MPH, except there was concrete rubble in the approximate area where I thought I had the blowouts when I came back later. Wasn't walking out in the dark in the morning commuter traffic to see if I could break something far worse than some wheels.
I will call Phil if I can't find wheels from some of the fanatics. I've seen his work and it is very good.
Adjuster is coming today or Wednesday.
More to come.

Sad in a permanent left turn.

If you are unable to find suitable chrome rims I wouldn’t dismiss the idea of getting satin rims, if available, and then have a reputable chrome shop (like Wheel Concepts) strip and chrome them for you.

Close out on this thread, Phil from Wheel Concepts sold me two new Chrome rims since I was a previous customer.
Got two nice new rims, what a lifesaver!
