That is what I was looking for, 2k is understandable if it was 1,500 2-3 years ago. They must have been quoting me for 4 rears instead of 2.
I've been driving the same gasser around for 13 years, this is such a massive upgrade for me in functional terms, its a bonus that is way more modern looking and attractively schemed, for me its worth it to further enhance the looks of this coach. I've paid my dues

If you put all alloy wheels on you need a gasket . You don't need the gasket if the inner wheel is steel. If you don't have the space between the two tires then you need a spacer.
I'm at a loss as to why the price is so high.

Look at post 39. That's the basic breakdown of FL charges.

Anyone have a good source in the southeast that can do the complete job for less?
I saw your post earlier. Did you ever find anyone else in Florida to do it?

I did not. I've decided to use the 3K on other projects. It is possible that I'll approach the idea again in the future.

Is Alcoa the go to? or is accuride sharing in?
Seems the Dura-Brite finish would be the most maintenance free and that appears to be Alcoa, anyone???

Durabrite coating is the real deal!
My 2005 peterbilt wheels with the Durabrite coating still look like new.

There is absolutely no reason to rotate tires on a Berkshire. So you don't need wheels polished on both sides. I don't know maybe they all come that way. You also don't need to replace the inner duels. So just buy four rims. Buy them local my four cost 1395. I spent around 400 I don't remember exactly for the hardware. I planned on buying aftermarket hub covers but I could not find any that would work. The lugs on the 340 are to short to catch the aftermarket covers.

So you have to use longer lugs Phil ? I was sort of bummed when I saw it didn't have Alum. wheels. Maybe down the road.
