Mine may be available sooner than I thought. If I get wheels from ccwheel.com, my OEM 20's may be for sale next week. If I go with Volk GT-Cs it will probably be a month before mine are available for sale.

I managed to get the bid on this auction. Spent more than I had hoped, but also got a set of pressure sensor valve stems for a really good price from the same vendor.

My present plan is to keep my current 20" chromes on with high performance warm/wet weather tires, and use the 20" satin finish wheels with some colder weather ice/snow treads. Not certain what tires would be best for winter use in this size though. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Cool, let us know how they look once they ship. I couldnt throw down that kind of money on ebay w/o some research.

OMFG, they sold for that much?? Wow.

If I can get that price for mine, Volks here I come.

Also, when you get the wheels, would you do the community a BIG favor and weigh one of them? This will, once and for all, give us the MUCH needed info we've all been speculating.

Thanks man.

Yeah... that's a lot of money for me too. But I put a ceiling of around $350/wheel... which was a lot less than Infinti would sell them for. My dealer said he could get me a "discount" at about $700 each!! No thanks! I'm also hoping that since the seller is a wheel specialist, they'll have the appropriate packing materials so they survive a trip from CA to Illinois. He assured me they do. We'll see. I'll definitely weigh one when they arrive and post it here.

Wheels arrived today... seem to be in excellent condition, despite UPS best attempt to trash them. Those guys could wreck an anvil, at least the ones around here. The boxes had split seams, but the wheels didnt' suffer, so it seems. Anyhow, I took one to work and placed on our medical scale... with one wheel weight and the center cover in place, it weighed in at 31.75 pounds.... not a lightweight. Now to find a set of Dunlop Grantrek SJ5s for this winter.

Glad to hear that they aren't 42.5 lbs each. No need to swap to less hip looking wheels in an attempt to save 15 or so lbs. of unsprung weight.
