who's price is that? which company?
That's a damn good price (assuming the tires are as good as the rims, say BFG or Yokohama or Michelin pilots or something like that).
If they get wrapped in cheap tires, you're still paying like over a grand for the rims alone.
I generally won't spend over $800 for rims, just because you can get some sweet ass rims (like TOM's) for like. $200 a rim. Pay any more than that, you better be either a hard-core show car, or a pro racer (with sponsors!
This is my feeling for two reasons:
1- if you bust a rim, you gotta replace it, and you may need it on short notice. Helps if it's affordable too.
2- I will burn through tires if racing in the summer (planning to autocross). I may need the extra bucks for new rubber.
Plus... The 77Wolf is such a kick ass rim, that if I ran them, I run a HIGH risk of some JDM fanboy totally stealing them off the car. Do I want to pay like, 1000+ bux of hard earned money for someone eles rims? hell no!
G-games are special rims...they should go on for track day, photo shoots or for that cool local car show; but right after, they'd go back into the garage, and my cheap, street-rims go back on for cruises or daily driving.
BTW, the Wolf comes in 17" too. I wouldn't go bigger than 17" anyways. The 17" is lighter than factory 16" rims to boot. 18"s would be cool for show cars.
