Exclamation Wheel Help Needed

Hi guys,

So I'm new here, and helping out a friend with a wheel issue. His mom has a 2010 G6 with the stock 17" steelies. She's had a bit of bad luck lately and managed to bend the hell out of one of the rims and it's pretty much done. Sadly money is tight since her husband passed away Monday, and she can't be left without transportation. As we all know, the almost spares they put in cars these days are crap so I'm trying to find a viable replacement for them.

When they told me what a replacement wheel cost I couldn't believe it, my Enkei's and Koenigs I run on my DSM were way less than that. I've searched high and low with no luck at finding a decently priced one.

I'm hopin you guys can give some ideas or options to help her out...

So I'm trying to find a steel replacement, preferably that the hub cap thing will fit on. The size and bolt pattern shouldn't be too tough to match(hopefully), but the offset looks like it may a pain to match, tho I have a couple ideas if I have to get one with a different offset.

Sorry for the long winded post, but I appreciate any ideas you can throw out there...

I am sorry about the loss!! I hope she is okay. I wish I had extra wheels for you, but my new wheels haven't come in. Hopefully someone on here has some spare wheels laying around that they would like to give you. Go ahead and go to g6performance.com also and post something and maybe someone has some wheels there too. There are plenty of people that have extra wheels hangin around. Good luck and very sorry for the loss.

Sorry for her loss. And have you tried ebay? I see some decent deals pop up from time to time on steel wheels.
