...what my Volkswagen dealer wants for one. They want $600.00 for one wheel. F-That!! Is there anywhere I can order a new wheel for cheaper then that? (I am going to check http://www.tirerack.com shortly but I just wanted other options/opinions.)
I have 3 bents wheels right now but I switched two of them to the back and I had no issues. About 2 months ago or so (I posted about it... flat bed, etc.) I bent my right front wheel really bad. It's still holding up but A: it's obviously making my steering wheel shutter. B: It's obviously dangerous God forbid I hit another monster pothole. C: The wheel is scraped up from hitting the pot hole so it's FUGLY.

So, if you guys have any other places to purchase one wheel, maybe even two at a cheaper price, with a credit card, please let me know!
Thank you everyone!
Justin

Ill sell you mine for the low low price of $500.00 per wheel...That's a savings of over $400.00 for the set...And if you call today, I'll throw in a set of genuine VW center caps...that's a $50.00 value !!!

I knew I could have gotten more money from you for those wheels

Re: Where to purchase stock wheel (18" Aristo) for cheaper then... (Justin-R32)

Call ECS Tuning (ecstuning.com). I can't find it on their website right now but I think they had them for either $1295 or $1395 for a set of 4. I think.

Re: Where to purchase stock wheel (barmato)

Thanks everyone!!
For those offering to sell me theirs. I appreciate the offer, but I only buy brand spanking new.
Buying used is buying other peoples problems.

Thanks again guys!! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

If anyone has any other places, please let me know! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

go to ecstuning, and see if they still have the deal on aristos with michelin pilot sports, i think the entire deal was around $1300-1400. it was a deal so it might not still be going on.

Re: Where to purchase stock wheel (BlueNJ.:R32)

Correct me if I am wrong, but the below link is the proper wheel and the proper size correct? Sorry! I just want to make sure! LOL

Edit: Also, are these authentic Volkswagen wheels or knockoffs and if they are authentic, why are they so cheap? Dont get me wrong, I hope they are authentic because I will order them today!!!! I might order two for $314.00 a wheel. That's awesome!!

Re: Where to purchase stock wheel (VeeDubbinR32)

I'm just looking for one, maybe two wheels. No tires. The two wheels that are bent arent that bad, barely noticable and are in the rear.
If I am going to spend upwards of $1500.00, I am going to buy different wheels.
But thanks for the information though!!!! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: Where to purchase stock wheel (Justin-R32)

You think $314 a wheel is cheap? Seriously, there are people who pulled their Aristos off of their car the day they brought it home. You're pissing away your money if you spend $600+ for 2 new wheels that can be had for $100 each in the classifieds.

Re: Where to purchase stock wheel (Mike Solo)

I'm only buying one, which is brand new OEM and comes with a warranty.
If someone wants to buy another person's wheels, more power to them and if someone is selling their wheels after taking them off the day or week or whatever after buying them, then those wheels have miles on them and possible damage.

I've never been a person to buy used things AND with all the scams going on in the classified forums lately, I am very hesitant to go anywhere near those forums.
I appreciate your advice, but i am fine with the way I am going.
Thanks though!

I have used the classifieds numerous times since I have been on the 'tex (last couple of months) and have had nothing but great success. While I respect your opinion and right to only buy new, I think you are missing out on some good deals/people by excluding the classifieds. I, myself, just sold a set of Aristos with 4 PS2's (both of which only had 1,500 miles) to a fellow texer for $1,000. Now, if you wanted to buy this set up brand new it would costs over $2,000. I also would challenge you to find anything different from the rims that I sold as opposed to a brand new rim. They were in perfect shape
. You will probably toss my opinion to the curb, but I just thought I would let you know that not everyone or everything in the classifieds is a waste of time and by avoiding them altogether you are essentially throwing money out the window. Just my $0.02, good luck with whatever you choose to do http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif .

If you can get a tax ID number (from buddy's biz), I think you should be able to pull each rim for under 360$ OTD (no tax)....
Das what I did, IIRC 354$ each...
