Default Need a new OEM wheel

Today my wife fell victim to a pothole that tore apart the right front wheel of our 2012 Jetta Sportwagen. We need a new wheel, but I'm assuming the dealership will bend us over a barrel, so I was looking online and found these guys:

http://www.originalwheels.com

Has anyone used them before? Are the wheels any good? I don't want something that'll look like crap in a year or take 20 weights to balance.

I'd put 4 aftermarket, but we just don't have the cash right now.

I ended up finding a wheel (I hope).

The place in the original link did a bait & switch. They had the wheel listed as "In Stock" for $185 on their website, but when I called, it was "sold out" but he told me he would check with his supplier (probably the local junkyards). When he called me back, the price was around $25 higher, so I declined.

I ended up finding one for $179 (+ free shipping) from Hubcap Haven and I have 14 days to return it for a full refund for any reason. Hopefully it'll arrive soon so my wife can stop trying to drive 80 on the donut.
