Question If you see a set of these wheels for sale...

I know there is a "wanted" section but thought it might go better here... I would like to find a set of the early RUF wheels. They can need refinishing as long as there is NO DAMAGE. Been wanting a set forever. They are occasionally on erape but are usually really high or I am broke at the time. Hoping to come across a set this spring and hoping to have the money when I do...

Keep an eye open at the www.pelicanparts.com 911 Classified section. They come up from time to time there. I think last week I saw a set for $1700. Not sure if that is a good or bad price though?

RUF wheels are hot though! Good luck!

$700 each... ouch. I could get new Kinesis custom built for that much coin. I know I said I really wanted a set but they are just not worth that kind of money to me. I am going to stay on the look out and if that is just what they normally bring, I will have to let that dream die.

>they are just not worth that kind of money to me<

I could not justify that kind of price tag either.

Kenisis and Fiske are good alternatives though
