My front rim is damaged and believe not really repairable and would like to source a good used replacement. It is the Y type original wheel rim

Wheel casting changed slightly, the rim part on early ones is concave, later ones flat. My LT has the alter ones and the RT the earlier ones. Interchangeable but if you are perfectionist be careful as the difference is noticeable if you look. The dates suggest both types are used on the LT. Casting date is stamped on them and that's the give away.

How bad is the damage?  If it's a few flat spots then they are repairable despite what BMW will say. I've done a few now and they have all come out well.

Not much you can do about that without some very fancy machinery.

I bought a rear wheel off eBay in April. I was looking at refurbing the one that was on the RT but I ended up with a replacement that cost me €57 landed. It came with a BT45 on it that looked like it had only done 1,000 miles and 3714 manufacture date. My main reason was to not have the K off road but the replacement was good enough to leave as is. It will be worn out by end of August.

The 'old wheel' is now a spare wheel with a good tyre on it.

The 'new' wheel was the later casting but I have a spare front to match it along with spare disc bolts.

Plenty of odd wheels out there to avoid expensive repairs.
