There are several companies like https://www.hubcaphaven.com that are a good source of rims too. I'd be inclined to go that route vs eBay. TPMS sensors can easily be swapped from one rim to another and I think my local tire shop charged $6 each to do. I've had it done with three sets of wheels, so 12 sensors being remounted, with no problems. Asking your dealer where they get rims repaired is another good option. There are plenty of people who run mobile wheel repair businesses and most dealers have a working relationship with at least one to fix road rashed rims on trade ins.

Looked into having the gashed road rashed rim fixed. The cost to fix it ranges from machining gouged area and fix road rash $150 to just no machining fixing it for $100. I leaning to fixing it myself.

Thanks, you would think a CV joint would be more robust!
