14R rims are a bit pricier on Fleabay due to slightly lighter weight than older 14 rims, but fronts are usually more expensive than rears, since they usually take the brunt of accidents etc. and are in shorter supply. If it's still holding air and doesn't shake like a paint mixer, it's probably ok to run it until you get a replacement. My buddy couldn't go over 50 without his vibrating, especially in front.
No vibration at all, but I don't think I like the idea of knowingly operating a killer death machine with a defect..It is a down gripe as far as I am concerned. I looked on Fleabay and they have far more front rims than rear, and the rears they have are either bent or messed up in some way. If I cannot find something soon I will have to bite the bullet and get a new OEM rim from Partzilla for $700 and change. Almost enough to make an insurance claim but not worth that mess at this point.
A side note: A guy on a HD was cruising down our local street on Sunday when another dude in a Toyota Pickup truck all decorated out with Purple Heart and pro veteran stuff made a left in front of the guy on the HD and killed him. That is how quick it happens..........
