Default Most expensive wheel, 30" rim size.

guys i want to share something which i though is unbelievable to me atleast. i clicked it during my trip to Bahrain.

though the original price is 10,500 Bahraini Dinar, being offered at discount 7000 BDs per wheel!

1 BD = 10 AED

1 AED = 12 Rs

now do the calculations! one wheel is worth 840,000 rs at a discounted price!

Will it change the design pattern automatically for its head blowing cost?

I haven't heard so expensive alloy so far. Yes its a Diamond studded along the sides. And the special offer ad contains a Hummer. Looks like this alloy is suitable only for Hummers, which is no longer in production

BTW, which is the company that manufactures this type of crazy stuff?

Hummers are not in production?. I couldn't believe. My uncle bought a brand new H3 before 2 months. They might have sold the old stock it seems

He might have received a whopping discount:
Hummer sale: Only 2,200 left and $6,000 rebates - Apr. 7, 2010

Looks like the wheel of fortune of the maker of this diamond-studded thingy has gone all kaput; bad timing!

@ Akshay

Exactly my sentiments.

The alloys looks downright Ugly and even if shod into the Hummer will do nothing to enhance its beauty.

Leave alone the price, much better looking alloys are available in the market at 1/100th of that.

Hmm, I'm not sure about the discount. He told me about it's gas guzzling nature & he has imported a RHD H3 & use it here in India, not in US. The average is just 3kmpl.
