Default Damaged Rim

I screwed up tonight, took a corner to hard and took a chunk out of my rim, when I hit a curb.
Luckily didn't damage the tire and it is still holding air, so I don't have to replace it right away.
The cheapest one on ebay I see is around $100, that is brand new in box.
Anyone know of a less expensive sight to get one.
All the used ones on ebay are scratched and cost as much.
Here is a picture of the kind I have.
I don't have a picture of the damage as it is dark out right now.

That's what I was thinking. I found a set of gt take off rims and tires for 300$ which is only a little bit more then what he is about to pay for just 1 rim.

ryanmacrum, how has tire selection been for the 19's? i've always heard 18's have better prices and options, but then just recently I read somebody say they got their 19" tires for less than the 18's would have cost.

I've decided to just replace the rim for now.
New rims are further out in the future.
Here's a pic of the damage
