weld wheel question

I have the opertunity to get 4 new weld wheels 17 x10 with 37 12.5 BFG all terrains on them, they only have 500 to a thousand miles on them, the guy decided to get 20s with 40 inch tires. My question is are weld wheels a good product, are they better than my eagle alloys I have now? and finally does 1800 for the whole package sound high? or fair? last question they are comming off a gasser, will they be ok on my 7.3? thanks in advance.

Weld racing makes a good product. As for the price, it depends exactly what rim they are and how much they cost new? Also around here slightly used (take offs) tires loose allot of value, why I don't know but I bought a set of 325/60-20 toyo At's for $950, MSRP online is $1680+ not including shipping. Anyway back to your queston, after a quick google search I found those BFG AT 37-12.5-17 for $330 each, but street price around here would be about 650-750 range maby 800 tops. So its going to depend on exactly what rims and what shape they are in.

Thanks for the help. I think its a little high, and the wheels are like new but I dont like the style enough to pay top dollar. Im going a different route.

Weld wheel is a fantastic product but I haven't really liked any of there truck wheels since the Cheyenne was out, I use Weld all the time for my race cars but there are a ton of great truck wheels out there now and much cheaper. Most weld wheels are polished aluminum and a lot of upkeep.
