i like both of them but i am kinda pulling for the GXP'* so i don't have to worry about the centering rings and such never had aftermarket wheels before i like to find one'* that are stock off something else if possible since it is now a tie (thanks Mike) guess it will all come down to how the GXP'* look when i see them in person tomorrow and yes $700 is a lot for stock rims but it'* better than going to GM and ordering them for $898 ea + $50 core on each one! as long as they are decent i'll get them but if they have issues then i will get the KV5'*

GXPs. The aftermarket ones don't look that much different from the GXPs so might as well go with the cheaper set.

The GXP'* are priced high because they are highly wanted. IMO people charge more for them because people will pay that.

Haha, I won't. A stock used wheel is never worth that much. When I did my deal for the wheels for my truck, I searched for awhile before I found the deal I was happy with.

The highest I'd pay for some GXP wheels that were used (regardless of condition) would be $500. That would also have to include the tires.

$700 is a long standing average price for GXP wheels. (Which are $800 a piece factory) And they will be around long after those $700 chromes rust through. Salted roads which you and I drive on a lot, and cheaper chrome wheels just don't get along.
