Replica Wheels

Postby Almost842 » Tue Nov 20, 2012 7:53 pm

Hello, I am a new user so please excuse me if this was posted somewhere else. I would like to know where I can find cheap replica wheels. I think that I am paying too much for replicas, and wonder if there is anywhere where I can find all four wheels for under $400.

Basically no. $400 for a set of wheels is CRAZY cheap. The scrap price for aluminum wheels is around $50/wheel, IIRC.

Thanks. I thought that that was true, but I know people in my area that are buying replica BBS for like $200-$300 on Craigslist.

If you're after meshies, they can be had cheaply if you keep an eye open. They were popular on stock cars during the 80's, so they can be had that way. I thought you meant new wheels, and copies (ie Rotora)

Almost, what car are you shopping for? What diameter & width? I might have some suggestions that may fit your bill brand new if you increase your budget by may $150 or so...
