Wanted, one 15X6 Rial Le Mans wheel. I was unable to save one of mine when my insurance company took possession of my totaled '08, so I've only got three.

Didn’t try to buy your wreck back?
The difference in the settlement was about $1,000 between keep and release. Enough difference to allow me to buy another car. The wheel isn't the only upgrade I couldn't save though. :-(
It wasn't really a wreck. Hurricane Michael did the job while sitting in the driveway. smarts are tough, but don't throw a roof at them.

Location? I bought my Kahns from a gentleman north of Seattle, and I think he has one or two of those wheels.
I live east of Panama City, Florida. Didn't figure it was relevant. Since nobody lives here, it'll have to be shipped almost regardless of where it is.

I have one rear Rial that is off-round. If you know of anyone there who can round the wheel up, I am willing to let it go for cheap.

I don't know of such a place. But, I will check around to see if anyone fixes wheels here.
I know that when my '08 was wrecked, the shop sent the affected wheel out to be 'refinished'.
It had some scratches.
Will they know what you mean by 'off round'? I don't.
Is it the rim bent, or what exactly?

Well, the tire shop guy said that the wheel was "out of round" after he tried to balance it with a new tire. Fortunately, I had another two Rials (one new, one used) which I had wanted to mount on the front that I had bought earlier, so I took one of them to replace the faulty one. I know exactly why the wheel got "bent". I had run it with a nail (flat) home from work one freezing night ...(
