I put this on the KA forum, but sticking it here aswell as isn't really KA specific advice I need.

Managed to clip a curb pretty hard and have cracked one of my KA alloy wheels. Exact wheel is the 14" 6x2 Spoke Alloy in the attached link. I would order from them but I don't fancy having to go upto Tyneside from Essex.

How's best to go about ordering a replacement wheel? Been having a look around online and can't find anywhere that sells this exact wheel. Does anyone know anywhere online I can order these? If I go to the local dealer, how long would it take for them to order in a replacement part?

Some mates have said try a scrapyard, but I don't fancy having to go searching around to find this type with little chance of success.

Any help/advice appreciated.

Cheers!

It can be quite difficult finding another alloy. I know my Dad had trouble with finding one for his Escort.
I would recommend looking at a few scrappies before buying off that Ford Parts UK. You never know what you may find. Sometimes you can find right bargains!
Otherwise keep looking on Ebay. I have only just got my Ford Ka and have horrible wheel trims :( I'm saving up first then I will eventally buy some. I always look on Ebay and they do tend to go quite cheap on their. The only problem is you having to go and pick them up!
