First check your wheels for proper balance & any bends. If that is good then look elsewhere.

Don't forget the jack stands.

Craftsman stuff is not of the quality it once was. They used to have their tools made by Crescent in the USA. Now all their tools come from the tool factory in China.

I'd refinish the wheels in the same color they are. Your car looks great, such a clean look.

I'm glad your shop is going to bat for you. Many times a used part needs to be worked & ends up costing as much or more than a new part. Good luck I hope this works out for you.

That's a pretty slick 3M product. If the washer or strip of metal caveman repair fails the OP could use the wizard chemistry.

I'd use a large flat washer or a strip of metal with the proper sized hole & bolt it back on. I assume that the place the screw attaches to is still there.

Wow sure glad you found that before the wheel parted company from the car. You might want to pull those lug bolts out & check them for damage from the wheel flopping around.
