This reminds me of a thread from another forum. Some girl with a tricked out $35K subaru, another $10K in mods gets her $1200 wheel scratched by a tire shop. They offer to reimburse her for a brand new wheel. Her response "What? They want me to buy the wheel and then pay me back? Who has $1200 just laying around???"

You'd guess someone driving a new $35K car on $5K wheels, but apparently not.
