Car was vibrating badly at moderate speed. Had all four wheels balanced and discovered that the right front rim was bent! As a result, I need one replacement 17" Cup 1, et52, 7 1/2 Jx 17 H2, made in Italy, Porsche wheel as depicted in the attachment. Since my other wheels are pristine and unmarked, my purchase preference would be one that matches their condition.

Have you tried getting it straightened? Probably a lot cheaper option than buying a new wheel.

Being a cast rim, I Hadn't considered straightening. Received an offer for a scuffed used one for $650, so took your advice and found a shop that would fix my unmarked but bent rim for $100-150.

Good call, did it work out?
Those should be the repros, given the casting marks. Unless there is a Porsche part number on the back.

Yes, I was able to have the bent rim straightened by a wheel specialist for $110. Saved time and money avoiding internet replacement offer for the $650 Cup wheel.
