Wheel prices? I'm out of touch
I've resisted the call to upgrade my Raptor as it's pretty nice as it is.
Today I happened upon a YouTube video a guy made with his Raptor with HRE P161 20" wheels.
He also put brembo calipers and drilled rotors on, as well as custom bumpers, Borla exhaust, etc. Really beautiful and functional upgrades.
The wheels are beautiful and so I figured, why not?
So I start an internet search for them.
OMG. I bring it up and see $2400. I figure, wow, that's like $600 apiece. Okay, I ain't rich but I'm no pauper either and the bleeding on the media room and new kitchen we just finished stopped.
Then I see it's another $100 for 20", $400 for a different finish, for a total of $2900.
Ok, I'm still in.
Then I realize, to my shock, they are $2900 APIECE!!!
Am I just completely out of touch or a complete dope?
I'd dare say no way in heck are the Porsche OEM wheels nearly that expensive, probably half as much.
What makes these so special?
12 GRAND for wheels? I think not. I couldn't afford the tires. ;-)
