As the title states.  options online aren't cheap. i've been looking at VRwheels and 3piece.us, are there any other places someone can suggest? I've been looking at redone Work wheels, but maybe ordering a new set isn't as expensive as i think?

    Whether it's cheaper to buy new or not depends on what kind of wheel it is. Wheel Flip has had some harsh reviews but also some good ones and they are still in business as far as I could tell. They quoted me a high, but not surprising amount to resize my 2-piece wheels. More than the wheels were worth though, so it depends on what you're working with. I don't think I would use them for work though, based on the reviews. VR would be a better bet.

      Thanks man, I knew someone here would know! It's almost the same price to buy new Works but so many people have Work wheels. I was thinking of a set of Weds and I found nearly the perfect set but it's too early to start the project. I gotta save first. :/

        Luckily, if you've got to spend time saving, spend that time looking in North American listings and take a peek at Japanese sites too. Bazreias are really popular so you may find other sets like that one, if it's gone by the time you're ready. Those are a good deal though...
