I hit a bad pothole this winter. The rim had bent and the tire was leaking air so it needs to be replaced. I searched around for 18" wheel replacement for my '14 Mazda 3.
I came across this:
wheelership.com/new-18-x-7-alloy-replacement-wheel-for-mazda-3-m-2014-2015-2016-rim-64962.html

The wheel looks like the stock OEM, with much cheaper price at $135.
I was wondering if anyone had any experience with The WheelerShip website in general? I'm not sure whether I should buy Mazda OEM wheel (which costs ~$250) or get this cheaper alternative.

No, not yet. I'm hesitant on buying it because I have no idea what the quality would be.
Right now I'm still looking around for a salvage OEM wheel that I can buy. Luckily I'm not that in a hurry of getting one because the air leaks out rather slowly from my current tire (~2 weeks before I need re-inflate it).

I assume this is just a reseller of used wheels branded as "refurbished" that get taken of parted out totalled cars, especially considering the price.
