Hi Cobra. Have you checked to see if the bent wheel can be straightened?

See my first post here: Straighten and repair bent/damaged wheels.

If you Google "Automotive wheel repair in my area" , you should be able to find a shop or mobile tech who straightens wheels. It is a while you wait job, similar to an oil change and tire rotation, as far as time.

Good luck.

I think there was just recently a person in the "For sale" section of the forum selling the stock rims? check if they still have them

I've heard the OEM wheels are bananas right now. Good luck.

This wheel I don't think is shared by any other Ford model. We might want to start hoarding them.

When I called Ford they said they wanted $1600 for 1 wheel with a $50 core charge! I was like keep the $50 core charge I am not giving you a $1,600 wheel for $50 core charge.. lol

The band is too prominent on the outside of the wheel they said with the type of bend I have that there could be a crack and if not bending it back could most likely cause a crack... They said I would have to pay for the repair despite whether it worked... I figured that even though the cost is astronomical I would rather replace it with a fresh wheel for the next hit that that wheel takes... Because we all know it'll happen again

I appreciate everybody's help... I really do need the wheel for the thousand mile round trip to New York and back... So I pulled the trigger, or more aptly I let Ford put a gun to my head and pull the trigger on a $1600 new wheel!! lord help me I should have just gotten custom-made HRE wheels for a few hundred more a wheel... Anyway I'm going to keep my busted wheel and they can keep their $50 core charge... I would appreciate if anyone has a line on absolutely perfect stock wheels that were removed when the car was new so that somebody could put aftermarket wheels on... I'd be interested in buying a set of four to have for the future... Everyone's going to say no low ballers I know what I have and try to charge $5,000 for the set.... I'm dieing laughing right now... Never selling my fusion sport might be a cult classic one day at the very least I love it trying to keep mine as mint as possible

Wait, did you check Ebay? I've seen a couple (I personally need two hyper grays), but there's at least one on there for $500'ish. Not sure how fast the shipping would be:
Ford Fusion 2017 2018 2019 19" OEM Wheel Rim Hyper HS7Z1007F 10123 | eBay

Or this one:


19" FORD FUSION WHEEL RIM FACTORY OEM 10123 2017-2019 HYPER GREY | eBay
(I think the above link/seller has had a good mention on this site once or twice)

but I would think you'd have it by next week. I'd cancel the ford one with the quickness. (Unless I've totally missed something here).
Get'm if you need them. I have a mismatched set that's driving me nuts at the moment. I've just had more pressing matters to blow money on :)


Edit,,, this one,, looks nice:
10123 Reconditioned OEM Aluminum Wheel 19x8 Fits 2017-2019 Ford Fusion | eBay

Hi Cobra. Yes, all the wheel repair companies/shops I dealt with stated if the wheel is bent on the outside/visible part of the wheel and wheel lip, they are generally much more difficult to repair, or even non-repairable. Luckily, mine was bent only on the inside/suspension edge.

Sorry that could not work out and save you a bunch of dollars.

Good luck.

I appreciate the effort and the point in the right direction... That's why the community has always been such a great place to come... Everyone's been a great helping hand
Let's all hold on to our sports and have reunions 20 years from now while everyone drools at our petrol driven turbocharged oddities

Cobra, another option is Detroit Wheel & Tire. They deal in only OEM Stock Wheels. They can also do repairs.

I Appreciate all the support and help... Not looking for remanufactured... Original finish 100% in need on NO repair or touch up... Will be buying more wheels... Looking to have at least 4 backups... At this price I'm afraid with the future will hold for looking for new old stock factory wheels... And all parts really... Going to be making a weekly trip to ford to purchase replacement factory parts for our fusion... Things that will be hard to find eventually (that would be all parts lol)... but especially where parts like interior plastic panels... New trunk carpeting insert... Factory seat coverings... Even exterior body panels like front bumper cover and rear bumper cover that are specific to our vehicles... was thinking about going on coparts and buying one of the mostly intact fusion sports as a future donor car for whatever parts I might need but in reality I would like for the foreseeable future possibly even up to 40 years down the road have factory new old stock parts... I am a little very crazy... But it gives me a piece of mind... Isn't that what money is for

Exactly. There may come a time where we as a forum need to start snapping up these limited parts to attempt to make sure FuSpo owners can get them.
