Here's a view of the carnage:


Here's the only visible sign of damage on the rim. I just hope it's repairable:


There was some minor damage to the fender well but I still think I got off lucky:

5 lug Alcoa?

Hi, in your original post you asked for a 5 lug wheel; They are actually 10 lug wheels, but they only use 5 lugs on the front wheels.

Ya, sorry for the confusion. The beauty ring does conceal the other 5 unused lug holes.

Any suggestions on where I can get the wheel fixed?

Google "aluminum wheel repair" and you will get 1,780,000 hits including this one Alloy Wheel Repair Specialists | The World's Largest Mobile Wheel Repair Company If that one doesn't work for you, there are a few others to choose from.

I was just looking for recommendations from people that have used a service and have been satisfied with them. I know that there are a lot of services listed on the web. Tons of junk businesses that do shoddy work out there. Not every wheel repair service will do welding and bead repair.

I contacted them and was quoted $155 based on description and pictures. Well, at least I know I can get it repaired locally for that price. Still looking for any other recomendations.

Ouch! It broke my heart and wallet to replace a hodge-podge of unworn 8 to 12 year old tires last year. I went with the Goodyears on sale. I paid about $2600 for 6 mounted and balanced. The one thing I noticed was great improvement in ride and road noise. The old ones were pretty dried out and hard. I store it inside and put most of the weight on the jacks when it sits for any time. Hope to run them for 8 years including a trip to Alaska. Road service on the Goodyears might be better than the Chinese imports.

Are any tires still manufactured in North America?

Check out the Goodyear RV tire site. I believe they are manufactured here but don't take my word for it. They have some good tire maintenance videos. Happy with them so far. People will have some strong opinions one way or another.

I just had a highly recommended expensive Yokahama destroy its self with less than 100 miles on my Audi S6. Manufactures flaw is the only thing they could determine. Nothing left but the beads and damaged $1200 rim.

The Michelins I just bought for my trailer were made in Canada.

I'm sure lots of brands have multiple manufacturing locations. Goodyear Wranglers are made in several different countries according to this Tire Rack page:

http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....el=Wrangler+HP

That site seems pretty comprehensive for searching by brand and being able to identify country of manufacture.

Good luck!

Tire Life

On the Michelin site I find this.

While most tires will need replacement before they achieve 10 years, it is recommended that any tires in service 10 years or more from the date of manufacture, including spare tires, be replaced with new tires as a simple precaution even if such tires appear serviceable and even if they have not reached the legal wear limit.
