Good deal or no?

4 staggered oem zhp's good condition, painted matte black with brand new summer tires for 1200. What do you guys think? Is that a good price? I have a smoked out topaz blue 325ci, so I think it'll look dope. Opinions. Thanks.

For around $1200, i think you'll be able to find a few different 18-19" used staggered wheel/tire setups if you are looking to go more aggressive.

Ya i sent you an email about some Vmr's... i dunno, im very indecisive. I dont know what to do or get... Reason why i like Zhp's is because i can just leave them all year around and they look pretty sweet, especially in black (in my opinion) but at the same time i can pay another 200-500 and get nice vmr's or such... i dunno, i have about another week to decide. I need more input....

We have a handful of customers who run our wheels all year long... I myself run a set of 19" V701's all year long. Love them...

As long as you keep your wheels clean with soap and water and do not leave road salts or brake dust on for long periods of time, you will be fine. We recommend treating your wheels as to how you would treat your cars paint.

I just did the same purchase, unfortunately the tires were rushed from the shop so I paid that premium for it, I'm sure you can find a better deal.

Price is too high considering the tires. If they were Pilots it would be different.

I wouldn't mind getting vmr's, for 1400-1500 with tires shipped. But i would want gunmetal, hyperblak or silver. Anyone know Any good deals? / sites. I saw free shipping on vmr 710's but I don't like hyper silver...

You can get a used set of BBS wheels, by far the best wheel manufacturer, for under $1000 if you search.

ZHP wheels are heavy. And so are VMR wheels.

$1200 is WAY too much.

Actually, VMR wheels are about average in weight. 24 lbs for an 18x8.5.Not light but not exactly heavy.

imo zhp wheels are not good looking at all and that price is too much, as stated above you could get much nicer wheels for that price
