Well, I certainly am glad we were able to provide so much amusement. LOL. I guess everything DOES happen for a reason.
The rim & tire were long gone from the dumpster. So, we ordered one today. First estimate was $500 for the rim only. Online estimate was $200 + shipping for rim only. Finally, a mechanic that we use located one for $150. Adding in a tire, installation and tax and it will be just under $300.
Poor daughter is going to be broke.
