second hand anywhere from 2k up to around the 3k mark, and maybe more. They do cost from around 1k each rim new if im not mistaken. They are a s**t hot rim though, but damn so pricey.

Mate I reckon just save up for the Simmons wheels they look absolutely INSANE,I'm also saving up for ones as well. I think it'll be more than worth it in the end. Wheels choice can make or break the car's looks.Too bad you'll need to be on your front porch with a shot gun guarding them after it's fitted to your car. :D

If you want a set of Simmons, order them before the end of this month, theres alot of rumours going around about them shutting shop, but supposedly they are taking orders till the end of May.
What happens after that, who knows, would have to be a decent moneyspinner for another rim manufacturer to pick up their designs and take the manufacture of them off shore.

yeah i was looking for mesh type rims, but there wasnt nothing that looked any good. Those ones you posted up look ok, but not really "meshy" enough imo :lol:

ive dealt with them before, my rims i got for a nice price, plus a spare, and ive ordered another spare while the prices are so low...... 6 brand new rims FTW !!

Only issue ive had is, my wheels require the slimline tuner style nuts, and the nuts they sent out to me were complete s**t. I ended up stripping 2 wheel nuts to the point i had to get an engineer to remove them for me due to the very small space to work with.

So yeah, source your own wheel nuts if you get the wheels, but other than that they are great to deal with, and package them up well too

Being a multi piece construction it should be quite easy to repair. Worst comes to worst "Burnout Specs" I guess
