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.
