    They are that expensive because people will pay that much for them.

    Of course you could buy the Rials or Replikas that are almost identical to the tsportlines for half the cost (or less)
    I never understood why people buy the tsportline ones when the others are half the cost for the same thing.

    I use 19" Rials with Nokian Hakkapeliitta R2 snow tires, and 20" Axis Model S wheels with my performance tires. Both the Rials and Axis wheels are turbines. Both have performed well for me. Both are half the cost of T sportline cast TST's if you want the turbine look. In your case, I think you're looking at the T sportlines forged wheels vs. cast wheels in the same style from other wheel makers. Forged wheels are stronger, so they can be made lighter. Look at the weight difference.
