Default Looking to purchase a Front Knock Off rim

When I bought my 2017 BDR cobra I new that the front rim was bent. I went on Iconic to purchase another and found out through Jay that the color has changed.(again Jay from Vintage is very knowledgeable). I confirmed this with Perry at Iconic.The color changed about 2 years ago and my BDR being 3-4 years old there is going to be a difference in color. Wondering if anyone has an older 18 inch Front Knock Off rim to sell . The wheel is an 18 x 9 .You can text,call or IM me.
Thanks

John

It looks like there are 5 or so rim repair shops within a few miles of you.

Typically they can also paint. So if your old rim is cracked (non-reparable) they can eye-match paint the new wheel if it goes that way.

You may have looked into this already. However, did you contact the wheel manufacturer (not BDR), to inquire if they have any old inventory or could reproduce a wheel that would match your wheels? I'm assuming BDR is not the manufacturer of the wheels, that they out source them. Maybe another wheel manufacturer could reproduce a wheel to match your wheels?
On another note, I'm currently doing upgrades to my ERA Cobra and hope to have it back on the road later this year. Upon completion I'll be looking to get out and do some driving, if your interested I'll keep you in the loop.
Good luck in your search.
John

Got the rim straighten today. Went back to the same place as I went yesterday. A different guy. The first guy said he would get the rim back but would need another rim to match the color after he destroys the bent one to fix it.This guy said he would try to heat it and and bend it back with a led hammer and rag. It worked! I had him speed balance it and speed balance the other front rim.The other rim was off also as both rims might have played a part as I had a slight shimmy at 70 MPH.$65 later,should be good to go.
