I would think replacement cost would be your purchase cost, No?

Re: Forgeline

You asked a pretty broad question so it's hard to give much of an answer.

Forgeline make some of the strongest and lightest wheels available. They have two main styles of wheels. 1 piece forged monoblock wheels and 3 piece wheels. If you damage the forged monoblock wheel you are most likely stuck buying a new wheel. The three piece wheels can have the rim halves replaced easily. You can get new rim halves for $150-300 each from Forgeline or really any supplier.

For whatever its worth, I've put 23k miles on my 3 piece Forgeline wheels which includes 500-1,000 track miles using street tires. I'm not shy about curbing and regularly see sustained G's of 1.1+
Those miles also include hundreds of autocross laps. I've had no problems.

Re: Forgeline

Scott, doesn't get much better than Forgeline or HRE's
I've had a lot of 'decent' wheels over the years but when I received my Forgeline's the 1st thing I recognized is that the quality is simply at another level.

Cheers
