I'm searching for a replacement for 1 damaged wheel on my son's 2006 300C AWD. It has 6-spoke alloy wheels. A couple of local sources have told me that the wheels used on the AWD version are different from the ones used on the 2WD vehicles. At a fast glance they look identical me. Can anyone confirm that they are different? And can you tell me what the difference is and how to spot it as I go hunting at yards, swap meets, etc?

Plenty of places that repair aluminum wheels, Google search to see if there is one in you area. I had some rare Riken spoked wheels that had the same kind of damage and I had it repaired and it looked like new! up

I received this info today from my source:

Eric, sorry do not have this wheel .. No fear confusing this wheel with other models. This style 18" is only 300c awd 05-06.

Search online or salvage 18" chrysler alloy wheel # 2263, or 560-02263. There are few around ebay and other places.

I found a local place that could repair it, but he was reluctant because of the nature of the crack in the rim. He said it would run $150.00. So I went on eBay and managed to get a refurbished one for $185 including shipping. Seemed like the quickest and easiest, though certainly not cheapest, way to get it handled. Thanks to everyone for the input.
