Thanks. I think they retail for around $1300 ea for 18". My Reasons:

1 - I have always loved the R43's since seeing them on IND's Gold Rush Project and fall-line motorsports cars. They have an aggressive, track look to them. See this thread:

2 - I wanted 18's after installing coilovers which made the car stiffer and lower. 18's look great on lowered cars and the extra side-wall on the tires is welcome. I'm not a big fan of 18's on cars that aren't lowered significantly.

3 - They are light, strong, and I like how they look.

4 - They have big brake clearance (380mm) and I hope to upgrade my brakes at some point.
