I had a mishap last night in the rain in my 02 L.L.Bean, so now I need a new wheel. I would like it in decent condition, and I want it to match the ones on the car. If anyone has one please let me know, as they are not easy to come by.
I have 3 good ones and 1 that's scratched up pretty good (all came from a rolled 2002 LLBean, only one sustained damage). I'd let you have the pick of the litter with or without a good tire for $100+shipping (which may not be that bad).
I'd sell the complete set of 4 for $250 with good tires. . . $200 without (plus shipping either way).
The light wintergreen/seafoam green/whatever they call it? Not the darker forest green (both unofficial names I'm pretty sure).
I have a 2001 LL Bean I just got in that color (wintergreen). I'll compare the 2002 black beaner rim to it and see how it compares.
Beyond that, got any photog friends with a grey card? I have one and can snap a pic with one of those for at least a color saturation reference (adjust the saturation/hue in a pic of mine with grey card included to a reference grey card).
Probably not the right way to do it but it's the best idea I've got. Called the dealer, they said it would show a part no. for the wheel when looked up by VIN, not the color. Might could run your VIN and see if it and the vin of the black beaner I parted have the same part no. for the wheel?
i did not have time to call the dealer but I snapped some photos on my way out the door to work. The first pic is of the wheel I found, the second one is my wheel. The wheel on the car is mine to compare to the cladding, and the last pic compares the two wheels.
Well out of my pictures which wheel do you think yours is the closest to? I ordered a refinished one and I have the same problem, it is way to dark. I am calling Subaru's office tomorrow to see if they can be of any help. The issue with the part number is as far as I can tell, and what my parts guy said as well, is that it does not differentiate a color, and he has no way of knowing what color the wheels are.
