I picked up a set of RX8 wheels in October and finally had the money and time to get them done. I thought this process would be easy: Just pick the wheels up, take tires off, get the wheels powder, put on news tires...tada! Nope, I got so much more (work) than I bargained for.
Here's the break down of how much these cost me:
RX8 wheels (craigslist)....$250
Nexen N5000 tires....$430
Gas (driving to pickup wheels, drop off for powder, etc.)....$70
Also, My time driving, sanding, waiting at tire shops....PRICELESS!
Overall, this was my first time buying used wheels and getting them powdered. I'm 100% happy with the overall look and feel, but if I had to do it all again...I wouldn't. I'd just buy new wheels and tires.
Here's a few pics of one wheel on the 6. It's dirty right now and the weather out here is being a bitch, so I'll post more pics later. Let me know what you guys/gals think:
