18" XR8 WHEELS. CHEAP ?

Just wondering if any of you guys know where to get the XR8 18's cheaper than the dealer, and also if anyone knows how much they cost, as i've scratched one up on a gutter pretty bad.

Could be fixed if not too bad, Ajax wheels in Moorabbin or Wheel Works might be able to help. If not www.wheelking.com.au have most late model Ford rims new/2nd hand.

Re: 18" XR8 WHEELS. CHEAP ?

i sincerely hope its 3600 a set and not each! not even ford are THAT tight are they?!

The matching spare is usually a tick-a-box option isnt it? Goes for something like $400 more when you buy the car?

Re: 18" XR8 WHEELS. CHEAP ?

I've been quoted $700 per rim (no tyre) from the dealer I bought the car from.

Wheel King sell them, but when I called them they said they would only sell them in sets of 4, no singles. (Don't know if this has since changed, but it was when the car was still only a few months old)
