I think everyone has their freedom on how to spend their hard earned money.
The only part that I would add, is when you are in the market for aftermarket wheels, make sure you do your research. There are a lot of very high quality brands such as Rays, BBS, OZ, Enkei. But there are a lot of poor quality brands with not much engineering that market themselves as a high quality brand.
It's not about the amount of money you spend. There are products in the market that are selling for $3000 range that I would trust on my own car. I think that is the key, if your family members are in your car, would you trust the product that is on your car regarding safety.
HRE announced the new FF01 which will start at $2900 for the set. The product carries the customer service and quality that the HRE brand carries.
Quality has to do with the people who stand behind it, not just the price.
