PRICE EDIT:
Was $600 and $650.
$549 per wheel in 18s or 19s with silver center.
$609 per wheel in 18s or 19s with chrome

That's right. No joke. 3pc. Forged. Any width.

In case you missed what wheels these are?

I was going to say that $600 for 3pc forged rims is really quite reasonable, but then I remembered what you said in that watch thread, so I don't know if you're kidding or not.

Really, Forgelines are just under $1000 per, while Kinesis rims are (much) more.

Well, to each his own;)

In reality, these wheel retail for about $950 per wheel. Yes, PER wheel.

You can actually get Forgelines for about $650 per wheel as well, but they look like and act like competition wheels.

It's like the difference between a Tag and a Breitling. Both tell time and are premium brands, but personally, I'd rather have the Breitling. The Tag is just too pedestrian.

As for Kinesis, we retail those as well, they START @ $690 for 17s and work way up from that depending on finish, etc.

We also retail BC forged, those are $455 for 18s, but they don't have the established customer base like the RD Sport wheels and are 2pc.

3pc wheels under 800 in those sizes are unheard of.

interesting.
Ok, well, we'll see what we can do.
Tentatively, we'll match that of course.

Did I mention all wheel purchases come with a few set of wheel locks? :D
