I love how they make it sound like a deal by telling you that you saved three grand.....

Not sure, but you could buy a set for $1000 to $1200 in magazines ten year ago. I thought I had seen them cheaper since. I would think $150 each to have them chromed including shipping each way. But again that was like ten years ago. I just cant see paying $2000. And then they are saying the regular price is $5000? No way. I could be off, but it just seems very high.

I got my PC Black SS wheels from Gary Meier out of Clifton Park NY 7-8 yrs ago, starting to peel now. He said it cost him $200/ wheel to have them Powder coated, so I would imagine 150-200 is in the ball park back then, I'm thinking 200-250 now.

I've got several quotes for powdercoating wheels from shops in the area, $75 a wheel to blast and powdercoat is what I've been getting.
