I don't know exactly how much they weigh but I would say that there is about $15 of actual aluminum there.

Our garage doesnt care what the price is, the insurance company's paying for it. And the ranger is company owned so they dont really care about insurance premiums anyways, they just pay them. I just couldnt beleive what Ford charges for them. They are just as thin as a steelie wheel...unsafe IMO

Yea I figured the insurance just handed over the $ to ya, so cost wasn't a factor, just the wow factor of how much they rape you on an OEM POS wheel.

OEM wheels are much better than aftermarket, almost everytime.

They can be driven during winter time, even over the occasional canyons we call pot holes here.

But yeah, quality is never cheap.
