Some Backround: A couple weeks ago the driver hit the passenger side wheel pretty bad. After taking it to the dealership thay had us speak to thier contracted wheel repair tech, the tech said it would have to be replaced and we went to the parts department to get the right part number, we were told to check online first to see if their are better prices. After searching around we found a reputable dealer on ebay who had the wheel for $165 before shipping. The wheel arrived in perfect condition and had it replaced and the SLK aligned. All in all total repair cost around $300.

So my question is what should I do with the broken wheel, should I put it on ebay, or should I just find a local scrap metal buyer?

If a specialist has checked it and said it's irreparable, then just scrap it. If you put it on ebay and some unscrupulous person does a bodge job then sells it on, would you feel happy if a 3rd party has an accident because of it?

I would also have your wheel alignment checked - that looks like a pretty heavy hit.

As I said in the background info, the vehicle was aligned. Also I meant I would put it on ebay as broken unrepairable, but also thought it might be better just to take it to a metal buyer locally, thanks for the response though.

Ahh I see what you meant, my apologies. Yes that would be bad if someone attempts to repair it then sells it on.
