I seen them on your pics & was wondering 2 things. 1 are they lighter than the previous RX8 wheels, and 2 did you pay that outrageous price for them? Well you answered 1 of them.

Set of those just sold on my local craigslist for $400 with tires.
Maybe keep an eye on craigslist?

Also, the new ms3 has similar if not the same wheels, might broaden you search a little.

Not sure as I did not weight either sets of rims, but the new RX8 rims felt about the same as the old ones

Yeah, the new MS3 wheels do look the same.

If you are paitent and make a habit of watching places like this board, a RX8 board, craigslist and eBay, you should be able to find a good deal on rims. Both of my sets of RX8 rims were found on a RX8 board

I'm cool with the wheels I have for right now. 1 thing for sure is the more you start liking, the more you are going to start paying. I personally don't like the old RX8 wheels. Reason being they aren't anything more than a basic 5 star, "spoke" wheel that so many young heads totally flipped out over. I want something that's a little different than the same ol same ol. So many manufactures & aftermarket went with the 5 star like it was the thing to do ONLY.

Just my own opinion & feelings about those wheels, but I really like the R3 RX8 wheels. Seen them recently on a RX8 forum for $1000. Though they look suspiciously like my own wheels. That "might" be the reason that I like them then huh...........

I do check ebay, craigslist and other forums, but with my profession, being in & out of town, I miss out on alot of local stuff. Plus down here in the Mid-South they are on something completely different than other areas of the country. So I usually end up getting my stuff from other places. Heck my last 3 cars all came from somewhere else, not here.
