F@@k, F@@k and double F@@k.
There goes the Tuono !!!

Got caught out by a car flicking a large rock into my path by clipping it with its wheel.
Too late to avoid and now have a reasonably large dent in my front wheel and a complete loss of tyre pressure to go with it.

Can anyone recommend somewhere to get a replacement ?

Either an original or aftermarket pair if the price is right.

Would consider from abroad provided shipping costs not too high.

Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Watch ebay, the classifieds here, and AF1 as well. Is it beyond fixing? A lot of times bent wheels can be fixed. Find a reputable wheel repair shop and have them take a look.

Will try to persue the repair option. Found a site that'll repair them for about $130 but postage precludes it.

Will try to find an alternative otherwise it'll be about 600 for an oem replacement and tyre if it is unfit.

Tuono4 thanks for the assist. Have managed to find a company that specialises in straightening them. The cost should be less than $150 and they have come recomended from a source I trust.

No Problem Man. If you need them, you know where to get them. Good luck on the straightening!

Why would you post this without giving a link to the item? Totally useless.

Sent you a pm Tuono04 to see if you still had the stock wheels. I cracked my front wheel last night and have been trying to find a replacement.

No it's not. Jezzzuss, all you have to do is go to ebay and search for aprilia, wheels, rims, tuono and you'll find everything..........maybe he saw them awhile ago and didn't have time, or want to go get the link....

Crist the internet is getting as bad as next door neibors, no body wants to seach for shit for 3 minutes...............

Gabe,
I sold those wheels the first week they posted on the forum.
I'll watch for a front wheel for you and let you know what I find.
I responded to your PM. Boxing and shipping isn't that expensive.
