So, I'm a tech guy, not a Car guy. And I know with tech and stuff there places that are better to look for new parts, and pieces.

Our family has a big SUV Cadillac and I'm not to sure what happened, because I'm not currently living at home. I'm up at school but there was a crack in the on the inside or something and the manufacture had drawn an arrow to it and then sold it to us, and now after that rim happened to break or something. We are forced to get a new on. We are calling the manufacture and asking why they gave us a cracked rim on a "New" car. If they dont give us a deal or a new one we are going to buy online.

If you had to buy a Rim, And maybe a tire online where would you do it?
just looking for some good well known sellers and websites, I just want some info so I can be more of a help when I go home tonight.

Thanks guys!

Cadillac wheels are EXPENSIVE lol, my dad wanted a new set of stock wheels for his Escalade and the bill was over $2k (needless to say no new wheels).

When it comes to wheels, especially on an expensive vehicle like that, I would but OEM. Go to a dealer and order a new wheel. Otherwise look on Craigslist and look for a set of OEM wheels. Cadillac imprints the Cadillac logo on the inside of the wheels, usually on one of the spokes.

If it was a brand new 0 mile vehicle when you bought it, I would threaten legal action as that is a safety concern they obviously knew about and didn't tell the customer.

That's the plan as of right now we are trying to get a sale of maybe free from the dealer for doing that tonight they literally drew an arrow pointing at the crack on the inside.

If you don't want to throw away tons of money, and don't care if you have stock wheels id go for some nice simple wheels for the caddy. look on craigslist sometimes people sell almost brand new wheels for good prices.
