That thing is only good for scrap metal.

Have you looked on car-part.com for a used one?

Luckily, the Automotive Recyclers Association defines "grade a", grade b", and "grade c".

Quote
Grade A - a wheel having no blemish
Grade B - a wheel having a blemish of one unit or less
Grade C - a wheel having a blemish of greater than one unit of damage
1 Unit = size of credit card

The eBay pictures are terrible. You were taken and I'd get a refund and return at their expense.

No way it's an A.

PayPal will cover up to $30 in return shipping cost, but the benefit must be activated first.

Return it. May be a bit $$$, but check these guys out. They "carried" used rims for her Volvo, but were coincidentally sold out both times I tried buying them. ~2 years apart or so too. Maybe you'll have better luck on a more popular/ domestic car.

Totally misrepresented, there is no mistaking that wheel for A grade.

Yeah, like OP said, there’s almost no such thing as a grade A wheel on the road. I’d say that BITOGers might have grade A wheels, relatively careful drivers might have grade B, and most people have grade C or NIQ crzy
