I think I can get you a better price on Tecno's (and you only have to
buy 4 of one size). I don't have the price list in front of me, but
they're definitely less than $1000 each. Tecnomagnesio quoted me a
little over $1000 for original Stratos wheels, but those are hand cast
in sand using the original wood molds.

You might want to check Cromodoro's web site as well as Speedline.
I have Speedline's racing wheel catalog here, and they even have
8.5 x 13 and 10 x 13 wheels for X 1/9's (sorry, don't know what the
price is for those). Speedline seems to be a part of MIM which
has quite a few wheels. Compomotive also makes wheels for 4 x 98mm
bolt patterns if you don't mind non-Italian wheels.
Hope this helps those who are wheel-less.
Sorry, I didn't bookmark Cromodoro.
