Its just a relay they are cheap try replacing it , if that does not work,look for a bare wire and replace it. Or simply run a wire from fuse box that is key on hot only into the hot side of fan connector and a ground off other side of connector. It sounds harder than what it is.This way it comes on when you start it and off when you shut the vehicle down.

Do your new rims include hub adapter rings to EXACTLY center the rims on the hubs?
