Full price is $4200. Others on here have paid that much. So it seems like a pretty good price.

Good price for the Audi setup. Still much more than aftermarket, but I went with that exact OE setup this time after 14 years of aftermarket winter setups. No regrets.

If you want to stick with OEM and pay much more for a winter setup that will do it for you.

I think that's about $1300 more than most aftermarket good/decent winter setups.

My personal opinion is that a winter set is going to take abuse so why spend more than needed.

versus about $1400 for the Tirerack special with Blizzaks. I agree with laakness - going aftermarket is the way to go for winter wheels because they are going to be abused anyways. the most important thing is to choose good rubber.

I agree that the OEM wheels too expensive
I think it's $ 1300 a little low price for 19 "winter set of wheels
Quality rims cost about $ 1000-1200 (hartmann) + tires $600-900

+1. I fail to understand why some insist on "OEM". They are winter wheels which are by their very nature subject to hard use. Plenty of decent and decently-priced wheels out there to choose from.

He said $1300 more, not $1300.

Rims are rims; but tires are not tires. There are HUGE differences in winter capability. Depending on where you live, the choices can be different. Some people live where ice is the problem; that's one kind of winter tire. But that tire is typically not the greatest in the snow. So, choose accordingly and carefully. It's all about tread pattern siping, and rubber compound.

Give Nokian a look.
