Hmm..this the going rate? Or did you mean $400 "a piece"? Likely just keep mine as spares either way when/if I can afford to upgrade to the rims I really want. Since the resale goes down in addition for most of the stock parts that you can't put back on later..

There's a law that requires air pressure sensors? Another attempt to circumvent natural selection I guess.

Just wait till you need new rubber, then pay the $40 for the sensor kit. My wifes car has pressure sensors and I guess they replace them when installing new wheels. because it was $10 extra per wheel.

Yeah theres some stupid law about TPMS sensors. Likely some lobbyist paid off the govt to get the law passed and they could sell them like mad.

AMEX has pretty much said get it fixed and then dispute the amount and I wont have to pay it.

So I paid 1200 for all 4 wheels shipped with new Pirelli Pzero neros, so that was worth it IMO

Definately never pay as a gift, even if they won't make the transaction because of the fact you won't.

If you pay PayPal with your AMEX then you should be good to go. Just dispute it.

I decided to swap over the sensors from my old wheels to the new ones to keep the costs lower. Just in the off chance that AMEX says I gotta pay the bill It's only going to be $60 so I am not sweating that.
