I still find it hard to believe that those rims you got are $4000 a set. Thats probably damn near the value of the car.

yeah you definitely could have had 2 sets of Volk forged 16lbs 18" wheels for that kind of money. or a set of racing hart 3-piece wheels in 19" with about a grand to spare.

but i dont doubt you...if you say they are $4,000, you would know better than us.

here you go freak...these are the 18" 3 peice wheels version (they also carry the 17" 3-piece) of the gewalt spoke 1. they are only $1200 for a set. so if you look around, you just may be able to pick a brand new 17" 1-piece wheel up for a couple hundred bucks. ill keep looking for you.

Re: cracked wheel

wow, thanks k3. the site i looked at said $1k a piece. but i still don't know about one new wheel and three old ones. oh, and the wheel shop said it won't be done until thursday now, when the guy welded it and grinded it down to make it smooth, it got a hairline crack in it.

You know, I just can't relate to this stuff. My mindset is more to the tune of:

Stock rims, inconel manifolds.

If I ever do a caliper upgrade maybe...

Re: cracked wheel

Yeah.... I'm not even thinking of wheels right now. I wanna tune and mod my car first! Hey it would be nice... but all my resources (or what is left of it) is going into performance.

well maybe some people have different views. me personally...i like a mixture of both performance and visual. no body kits or anything. but i would like some JDM sideskirts and some new wheels. i would also like to get fresh two-toned leather interior. otherwise everything will be going to performance. i think there is a happy medium. i think wheels are a very nice accent to a car. just my

Re: cracked wheel

the reason i want other wheels is even though stock wheels are nice, now that i have always had aftermarket wheels, i don't want to go back to stock wheels, i don't like stepping backward. also, i love my 275's in the rear, makes it look real sexy, and i still want to have that.
