:eek: That's too much. They're only 17" and I bet they're not lite.

I'd go for some cheaper imitations.
the idea of replicas (i.e R90's) is good in theory, however, the offset of the wheel is rarely the same (~10mm difference), it's been reported that this difference can upset handling and put extra load on wheel bearings and suspension etc.

I'm ready to customize my MC40 and the first thing I'm going to swap out is the wheels (the Anthracite R90s).

They are only 2800 miles young. What's a fair asking price (with and without tires - 205/45/17 Goodyear RS-A's)?
I don't what a fair price would be, but phone up your local dealer, get a price for a new set and work from there. ;)

I'm sure you can find some with a similar offset.
