    20x9 and 20x9.5. Would you buy the set for $250? I've looked into refinishing and it ranges from $300 for sandblast/powdercoat only (I've used them before on Volk Racing wheels, good job), to $600 for prep/repair, sandblast, and powdercoat or paint. Are these worth it? I've included detail of some particularly rough spots.

    I think 20" is the best compromise for me considering some of the rough roads around here.

    Nope. Seems too far gone for me to invest to refinish them.

    $1800 new if you can still get them. So $450 each

    At $62.50 Each plus $150 to repair it's not that bad at $212.50 each. They will have a hard time selling them so see if they will come down on price.

    Seeing how you live in LA, no.
    One bad day on Olympic Blvd, will make you wish you had thicker tires.

    I would get 19's as you really want those 45 wall and not 40's you need with 20's.

    That last one looks beyond standard repair...
