without really trying to find a better price, nordicspeed has this wheel for $229 each. and since nordicspeed shows free shipping on the wheel as well, its really NOT that expensive for a new oem wheel.

not to think that there is always the potential to look more and find them a little cheaper somewhere else.

ANA, for example, has them listed at 795 KR (ie ~$118 USD)... which actually includes swedish VAT, so the wheels are really about 25% cheaper on foreign sales. if they ship to the US that gets eaten back up. but $120 each for these sounds like a steal to me.

i looked a little further on the ANA site and it looks like shipping to the US is approx $225 bucks.

so i could potentially get a set of these wheels for $550 shipped.

Sorry guys, doesnt work like that. SU posted those several weeks back. After a lot of emails, they finally came back with a price, 2295 SEK each wheel shipped, and that excludes the 20% VAT.

Thats 350 each wheel...

From SU:

BMW Rider said on March 29, 2012

I got an email back, they won’t ship rims with tires (at least to the US) due to freight costs.
“Hello
For the moment we can just send loose rims becuse the freight would be more expensive then the wheels. Freight cost 4440 ex tax
There is no TPMS sensor mounted, but i can fix this , price 800sek “

i did see this originally from SU as well.
i looked through the comments but didnt notice that all the wheels were a flat rate of 2295 like that.

http://www.saabsunited.com/2012/03/a...-saturday.html

not saying you are wrong though.

i did just notice after reading all the comments that shipping quote on web for outside sweden doesnt compare to what is listed in the comments on SU.

maybe i will email ANA to see what they come back with now.

ok so, i got a reply as well.

3800kr for freight is correct like you said.
the ALU88 wheel is 795kr each, 2544kr for the set.

combined 6344kr = $943 USD

$235/wheel shipped for the ALU88.

not near as cheap as originally thought, but truthfully not all that expensive either... but still slightly more expensive than Nordicspeed has the wheel listed at. ($229/free shipping to CA and most US states)

So you're getting a discount if you get the set? 795*4=3180 SEK

ok. i suck at posting properly this week.

the 795kr includes swedish vat. US buyers won't have to pay the SE vat.
but my math above doesnt help explain that.

the wheels list at 795k. ($118.38)
so a set of 4 runs 3180kr. ($473.55)
but minus SE vat drops the set of 4 total to 2544kr. ($378.84)
then add on the 3800kr for shipping. ($565.88)
end result for total price delivered is 6344kr ($944.72 or $236.18 each)
