The reason they charge that amount of money is because people like you keep buying them. How much research goes into building a circular piece of metal that is strictly non-mechanical and has been around for ages. Furthermore most of these people get wheels for looks, if you want dragging wheels or motocross wheels buy a spare set like I do. they are cheap and looks there do not matter only lightweight and performance. Additionally as reported by Road and Track and Car and Driver the bigger the diameter of a wheel the slower the car is accelerating. Buy the ADR's have fun with them and get a spare set if you race on the strip or autocross. You re-inforce the old parable that the marketing department does a good job pushing their products and naming their price to whom they want, in this case namely you.
