Used Auto Part and Used Cell Phone Parts

I find myself looking for a used wheel/rim to fit a Honda Civic.  Having recently had 2 flats at the same time due to running over some nails, I would like to have a "real" spare tire along with the "POS" spare tire that comes stock with most cars these days.  To do that requires an extra wheel but I do not know where the auto graveyards are here.  Anyone in Dumaguete got any ideas?

Secondly, where do used cell phones go to die?  My wonderful lady broke the LCD screen on hers and it would cost more than its worth to replace it, BUT, if there were broken cell phones sold for parts somewhere then she might be able to pick up a phone that is broken but the touch screen is still good.  (Or am I dreaming).  Yes, I did mention elsewhere that I had ordered new phones but no point in throwing the old one out if it can be fixed.

What about the next time your in Cebu, take a visit to Colon. Sure many used phones you could use for parts will be there somewhere.

Tried that, they want to sell new parts and are not interested in finding used parts for us.

Did you think to call into Kens Auto Trading, last time i was there he had lots of odds and ends, he may be able to point you in the Right Direction. Tricycle drivers get them for the Side car so they are about :89: or even Scuds
