    Looking for opinions - located a new set, but they are asking $225/ea for them. Are they worth that to you guys? I know they are rare, but are they $225/ea rare? I know they will look good on my MGM DC, but..... I guess its sticker shock to some degree for a "stock" wheel. Opinions?

    Thanks guys! I'm new to the world of Tacoma's - just trying to decide which route to take. I really dont want a black rim on my truck, I like the MT Classic II's ( or similar wheels) but can't figure out if they fit correctly without any mods to calipers.

    I believe it's Shannon who gave me this price ( Champion Toyota - Houston).

    :)

    225 a wheel is too pricey IMO!

    Thought you couldn't just walk up to a dealer and ask for a special edition wheel?

    The sales guy told me that you can't get the black SE wheels. The gray anthracite wheels were not a problem.

    That's the problem right there. I used to live about 10 mins. away from that dealership and used to get parts for my IS300 there so I'm very familiar with how they over inflate prices. I wouldn't buy it from them.

    I think Shannon is trying to make himself a little extra Christmas spending money.
