    They made the same wheels in aluminum, I had a set and sold them about 8-9 months ago. The titanium rims sell for $1100-$1400 if you can find a set, I think there were only like 6-7 set's made if I remember right.

    I've only seen one set of these in aluminum, the one's that I had. I have kicked myself in the azz for selling them many times. They were sold with the understanding that if he ever decides to sell them that I get the first shot at buying them back, I don't think they will be for sale any time soon.

    They do look very similar but they are not AI Designz. The AI Designz are quite a bit thicker than those and these are for a 40 series tire, the AI's are standard Tmaxx size.

    I drive a hybrid, and you can have the extra gas, no problem. They are storing it at the gas station for you and will only charge you about $2.50 a gallon for the "storage" fee. Of course that was the price the last time I had to check the storage fee.

    I very motivated person could buy these

    and then have a machine shop cut the AiDesigns pattern into them, you would have a very fine result.

    $$$$$$

    Just a little bit steep $$$$ for my taste. If they were beadlock wheels, maybe, but not likely. Good luck with that one. Likfe stated even if you do see them for sale they are very likely going to be priced well over $1K. If you want the best, then you have to pay the price.

    They looks sweet, but honestly what do them things weigh? Ti or Aluminum?

    I would imagine the difference compared to plastic would be pretty big.
