Default replacement alloy wheel

I am having a heck of a time finding a replacement alloy wheel for my
2004 Camry XLE. The dealer can't give me the correct part number even
when searching by VIN number and says it must have come off another
vehicle. The funny thing is I have seen it on other Camrys and similar
ones on Siennas and Solaras.

Here is a listing on ebay that seems the right one but I'm leery of
getting that one since it has a nick on it and the guy doesn't have the
best feedback.

<http://www.ebay.com/itm/370472512228?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p398 4.m1438.l2649>

http://tinyurl.com/mbsdbqy

It is a five spoke 16" x 6.5 x 4.5(114.3mm) 50 mm offset.

The dealer gave me a part number 42611-AA020 but that's not right. The
closest wheels I've found are ALY69575 and PT789C8040 but those are
hyper silver and mine is chrome.

Would you buy the one on ebay? Any suggestions welcome.

I'd try for finding a part number stamped on the rim you have, should
cross to something somewhere. Or it could easily be from one year newer
or older, since you saw other cars. You could follow another Camry to a
parking lot and write down their VIN to see what wheel the dealer comes
up with.

Good grief, I had no idea there were so many different Toyota wheels...
I'd buy 4 good used steel ones with plastic hubcaps and be done with
it, but here's a whole bunch of Toyota alloy wheels, some of them are
pretty expensive for a Toyota, http://www.wheelcollision.com/ty3.htm

Why do you need a replacement? The old one lost or damaged? Specialty
shops can safely repair damaged rims very well these days. Also dealer rims
can be pricey. You can likely get a set of 4 aftermarket rims for just a
little more the the rip off price of a dealer rim. (My guess is you already
thought of that and want an OEM rim). Try salvage (junk yards).
Oftentimes if one place does not have it, they will look around and find it
for you.

I have been to every junk yard around here and they have checked each
other's inventories numerous times. The problem is every wheel they
come up with is the wide five spoke ones while the one I have is more
narrow and tapered.

Apparently the wheel I have came bent when I bought the car used a year
ago from the dealer. Now that the tires are worn down the vibration
has become very noticeable. The tire shop says they can't balance it
so I'm driving around with the full sized black steel spare tire.

I have found the wheel online at several places, but the part numbers
are different and the finish is described as either painted silver,
chrome or hyper silver. I have sent pictures of what I have to these
places and they either never respond or tell me they don't have it in
inventory. I am currently making offers to an ebay guy who says he has
eight refinished wheels. By this point I'll have to live it if the
finish doesn't exactly match what I have.

You might discuss it with a rim repair place. Not that you would want to
necessarily have them straighten the rim, but they could paint a new rim the
correct finish if that was the only issue.

You might try http://info.automotix.net. You can search by car make,
model and year, and look at the pictures; but it's a good idea to have
the Hollander number for the wheel. The dealer or one of the tire shops
should be able to get it for you.

I got a refurbished wheel from them for my 2007 Camry Hybrid for much
less than Discount Tire could get one for.

Thanks for the suggestion. That site shows the wrong wheel like most
other sites. I ended up buying this one: http://tinyurl.com/kvz4s56
and just got it today. Hopefully there won't be any problems with the
installation. It turns out the finish really is hypersilver and not
chrome.

my conclusion from all this is that a previous owner/dealer had replaced
all four wheels with something not offered on the "2004 Camry XLE".
Agree? No? Just conversationally curious.

I don't agree. I have seen other Camrys with these wheels. The ebay
links call it a 2004 Camry XLE also. They just weren't that prevalent
for some reason.
