I don't know where you shop but decent 18" wheels and tires aren't that easy to find for $1000. I just paid $1050 shipped for my 17" winter rims and tires. And I basically chose the cheapest wheels available.sounds like a good deal, but why wouldnt you just got aftermarket? There are many wheels out there for 100 dollars less shipped or even less that look a lot more customy (if thats what yer lookin for) and nicer looking. Dont get me wrong RX8 rims are VERY nice. I personally like other styles. Either way good luck. 1000 dollars is a good deal though. Check rx8 clubs website, you might be able to get some even cheaper.
How much was mounting and balancing though? Mounting and balancing is pretty expensive for 18s.Just to give you some more info, there are better deals to be had.
I got my RX8s for $275, then I put some Kumho SPTs on them for just over 400. Bottom line, for about 700 bucks total with brand new tires.
Keep an eye on RX8club though, you can find some good deals if you're patient. $1000 is lot for a set of used stock wheels and tires, in my opinion.
Mounting and balancing was 40 bucks total. My local tire shop takes care of me because I've bought everything else in the past from them.How much was mounting and balancing though? Mounting and balancing is pretty expensive for 18s.
