Enkei RP01 new cost?

Anyone know how much enkei rp01 16x7'' were new? I bought a used set and one was damaged. ICBC wants to give me $250. I still don't think its fair they're giving me money for one rim which doesn't help me at all.

Gstar, your post makes absolutely no sense.

But... you can try an online wheel dealer like The Tire Rack, or try calling a local tire/wheel retailer.

My bad on the poor explanation. So I was in an accident where one of my rims was damaged and not repairable. Because they're discontinued, icbc is just giving me money for that single rim.

Im wondering if $250 is fair for 16" Enkei rp01? I originally bought them used, so I dont know how much they cost new. Icbc needs to know this to determine how much to give me.

Still confused?

Could you get more details from your friend? That's exactly what I'm trying to do right now. They're saying "we don't insure for the availability of parts." It would really help if I had some inside info. thanks

I know the friend caketech's talking about. They tried to screw him over pretty bad with the compensation for 1 rim bullshit. If you're talking to the vehicle damages guy, richard, from the coquitlam branch, he can be a bitch. Talk to his supervisors, his higher ups like the claims adjusters, etc, and explain your situation to them. they might be able to help you out.

the catch is caketech's friend wasn't at fault, so that might have had some levy on their decision to be nice and pay out for the entire set of rims. if you're at fault for this accident, you might be asking for too much to get compensated for all 3 rims. you are, after all, costing ICBC more money in the short term

Kind of worrisome that ICBC only pays for only one rim. Most aftermarket wheels get discontinued pretty fast. I just bought some discontinued ROH brand wheels. Maybe should have stuck with factory wheels.

Yeah, I will. It's been going on quite a while now, but it should be done soon.

Sorry, I totally forgot about this. ICBC ended up give me money for just one rim. I think it was $160 for it. Honestly, I could have argued with them more, but I bought the rims used and I've been told that it can be repaired.
