Bent Rim

Took my 2014 Overland in for service and they discovered a bent rim. I guess a pothole got the best of this mall crawler. Anyway, $544 for a 20 inch rim from the dealer. Anyone got any extras laying around?

Might I suggest you purchase the Mopar Tire and Wheel Service Contract? It won't do you any good this time but the 7 years of coverage contract cost less than your one wheel and covers any after market wheels or replacement tires you might purchase as well.

Re: Bent Rim

WTF? $500+ for one rim? That's absurd.

22' inch rims cost less than that each.

Re: Bent Rim

Check eBay or your local Craigslist. You can get a set of 4 for under $1000.

Re: Bent Rim

Finally got the new rim put on today. Total with labor was $645 at the dealer ($544 part, $55 labor, $8.25 shop supplies, + tax). Luckily our fleet maintenance contract covered it. My dealer needs help. It took me three days to get them to understand how to call and get a PO # from our fleet maintenance company, after having given them a copy of the one page document with clear instructions. Another two days waiting on it, although it should have arrived next day, and two hours waiting on them to install, even though I had an appointment. It was a week long process and I'm so glad it is done.
