So my 16 year old son and I were driving a long and he decided to crack me up..... situational you had to be there, but while trying not to pass out I was laughing so hard, I clipped a curb slow rolling a corner. Ultimately, it's ugly. good news, Not and R, bad news I can't find a part number, price or online source for a replacement rear wheel.

I would appreciate any help. Thanks

Is the wheel unfixable? It is amazing what wheel repair guru's can do.

I haven't sought out a wheel repair service. But, that's a really solid idea. Thanks, I'll check a couple of local guys.

Bet you weren't laughing afterward. :(

Part number is on the inside spoke of the wheel.

I'm impressed, I kissed a curb at 30mph hard enough to make the rear end hop, and the rim protector kept the rim like new. guessing the hop was the rim protector climbing up the curb vs a pure lateral bounce.

If the damage is not too bad, it can be repaired. Depending on your location, there are even mobile wheel repairs guys that can come to you and repair the wheel in their van. You would want to make sure that the wheel is true before you fix and cosmetics on the wheels. Any wheel shop can spin the wheel on a balancing machine to ensure its spins true.

Hope this helps, glad the damage was just to your wheel and nothing more.

If you do need to replace, give us a call or send a message. We have removed many of the oem factory GT350 wheels, when upgrading to the new ones. Maybe one of them would like to part with one or make the set available as donors for enthusiasts in the same bind as you.

@eric_n do yourself a favor brotha if you need to replace it there are members on the classified that are selling them I'm sure you can if need be grab one for cheap from them.


If you need help let me know I know most of the Shelby owners here on the board.

If the wheel isn't fixable I see single wheels on eBay all the time.
