They look nice. How much?

I’d be scared as hell experimenting on carbon wheels. How do we know they are made right?

Also how they are handled at the local tire shop would be of concern.
Thank you! We're a bit biased, but it's hard to compare to the beauty of exposed carbon fiber!

Cost-wise, our wheels are comparably priced with luxury and performance lightweight aluminum and magnesium competitors offerings. The 19x8.5 Inch wheel is priced at $2,495.00 each.

The last thing we want is for our customers to have any fears or doubts about this revolutionary technology. Our website offers a ton of info on testing and durability of the wheels - if you can, check it out at ESE Carbon Website (Testing and Durability). We've also put together an extremely thorough, in-depth white paper that's available for download Here.

Finally, to answer your question about the tire shop - mounting and balancing is no different than with any other wheel. Of course, these are high-end wheels, and you'll want to be selective when choosing an installer. Aluminum, Steel, Magnesium or Carbon wheels can all be damaged by improperly used equipment.

We hope this is helpful - if you have any other questions, feel free to reach out - we're here to help! Have a great day!!
