Year and Trim: 2006 Chevrolet Impala SS
A couple of months ago I got lucky and found a 2005 Bonneville GXP in a local yard, with all four wheels still on it. I bought those wheels as an alternative for my 2006 Impala SS stock wheels, which I was never really a fan of. When I was dismounting the tires, I discovered that one of the GXP wheels had a slight bend in the front lip. Should be a piece of cake for a reputable wheel repair place I thought, so I decided to have it done and that turned out to be a total debacle. The "repaired" wheel is usable, but is not to my satisfaction.

So, long story short, I'm looking for one 18x8 GXP alloy wheel. I don't care about the state of the silver finish (I plan to repaint anyway), as long as it's straight, lug holes are good, and curb rash is relatively minor. I'd like one that hasn't been reconditioned/refurbished/remanufactured in any way.

If I successfully find one here or elsewhere, the one I spoke of above will subsequently be for sale.

Ideally I'd like to be into it for no more than $200.00 CAD by the time it hits my doorstep (I only paid $220.00 CAD for the first four combined).

I'm in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. :canada:

Thanks for any leads!

I have wheels, but at the price you want I can't really help.

$200 CAD is $150 USD, and the cheapest USPS shipping for a 25lb 20"x20"10" package is $108. I usually sell the GXP wheels for $100-125 each.

I'd be willing to go a bit higher if I can sell my other wheel for half decent coin to defray some of the cost. Either that or I'll just sell the whole set of GXP wheels and go in another direction entirely, if they're really worth $400 to $500 USD per set.

These wheels are very high in demand because they're a really nice design. Lots of people put them on other GM FWD vehicles for an 18" option vs. your SS wheel, which I agree, is a little lacking (I have a 2009 Impala SS with the same blah wheels).
