I don't think you'll need spacers, but you'll probably want them for the et43 wheels.

I'd pay around 1500-1700 for those maybe.....that's just me though. Maybe higher if he has the tires on there that you want.

Any set of RS's will need work if they are not already refurbished/built. You have to know what your getting yourself into. If you do get that set tho i have the 1/4 height hex that is missing that i could sell you.

I know most RS need work, but I'm just saying 1500-1700 for them and then putting more money into them doesn't make it a good investment.

It does if you finish them nicely.

For 2100, the lips should at least be polished and the centers clean. That's getting into refurbished price territory.

IMO stock RSs are worth 1200-1600 considering how readily they are available these days. It's not like back in 06 when finding RSs was hard.

He got those from VR Wheels. So personally, I vote you buy some 16x7, 16x8 RS' from VR Wheels for roughly $800 and have them redrill them for like $250? and just finish them yourself the way you want them. Or just pay someone to do it if you dont feel like messing with it. You could send all the lips off to VIP Modular for high polishing for a really good price.

There is no doubt about that. It would be stupid to pay that much for a stock set of RS's. I was just trying to get the point across that if he does find a cheaper set of RS's that they will most likely need work.

I love the look of copper plated centers, I've just never seen a car that they look good on or match. Maybe a BRG car or something...

x2 We have Chrome RSs with Chrome lips here at the shop and they look great.

I would never want to deal with the maintenance of polished RS centers....I hate polished lips enough as it is At the very least, get those parts clear powdercoated so you're not stuck polishing for hours each week.
