“If you wanted to makeover an automobile” she reasoned, “you might want to change its color with a new paint job. That paint job is the equivalent of a new dress. Now a new dress can make you look great, but the right accessories can make you look like a knockout. A hot new dress may set you back a couple of hundred but a diamond bracelet, necklace, and matching earrings are going to cost a bunch more…but they’re worth it.” She kissed me on the forehead and announced she was leaving to shop for “accessories.”
So there you have it. Expensive wheels are principally car bling according to my wife. And she’s not too far off the mark. Yes, you can get superior metallurgy, manufacturing processes, and beautiful designs, but it’s unlikely you’ll risk scraping them on a curb much less running them on a track. Their basic value is their exclusivity and appearance.
So how much can you spend? You probably already know the most expensive wheels ever made, but in case you haven’t, we added them to our list. Note that we have listed the price for a set of four. We did that for the same reason earrings are priced for the pair not by the earring.
