How much can i expect to pay for new 18" rims and low profile tires?

Can someone give me some estimates or prices on how much they paid for theirs?

My 17" cost me $100 each at Sears. Expect to pay about $200 each or more for 18" Tires could be about the same. Figure $1500+ for the set.

With a 02' your probally want a 235/50/18 tire which was the stock size on the gxp 18'*.
This was what size I got and they ran about $425 out the door.
It'* also going to depend on what rim you get (chome, polished..ext) that will determine cost of the wheel.
But I would agree, around $1500 for a nice set.

I would look for some used ones, you could probally get a set with wheels and tires for $700-900 on craigslist.

Is the stock GXP tire a low profile tire? Because i want the tires to be sporty/show the rim off better then normal tires.
