Default Show us your less expensive wheels

Ive found many posts showing top notch, light weight, big money wheels. I couldnt find a post showing wheels, of a lesser cost than ccw, ect. I would like to see some pics of wheels in the $200 to $300 a wheel range. Thanks

I love your set up! I'm not as good with the camera but here's mine. I think these were about 250/wheel.

I think these look a lot better in person though.

Vetfeva2 those look good on that ride. Like the OP I love the expensive wheels but don't have the budget. I see some used C6 wheels in my future though.

They don't offer this wheel anymore (thus the $200/wheel). But the set that I have is like the ones on my car, silver 19x10 & 20/12

20s are to big, I need 19s for my 345 Drs! Very nice looking wheels though!

My buddy TorchRedRocket is looking for wheels in this price range, send him a few pics and PM him! He may scoop these up from you!

Another vote for Ace Slicks. I ran this set for 5 years before installing my CCW 505As last summer.

Brian, those look like they just might clear big brakes...do you know for sure? would be a nice alternative....
