Check with LKQ www.lkqcorp.com for used wheels.
TireRack has new alloy wheels for $81 each and other vendors should have similar offers.
Used wheels are about $65 each in my quick check of prices so I'd recommend buying a set of brand new alloys.

Seems that most people use some form of anti-seize on the mating surfaces. Don't use it on the studs though. Check your local auto parts store.

there should be plenty of crashed P5's by now in salvage yards. Call and see if they have one. I wouldn't try repairing an aluminum wheel.
