What do you know about these wheels? They don't seem to get talked about a lot. What is a good price for a set of RE30 18X8.5?

What would you like to know? They are forged volk wheels.. lightweight, strong, and expensive. Pretty sure they were discontinued so they may be hard to find.

I think the look is awesome. I'm personally running Rota svn which is a replica of the re30.

You didn't mention an offset or which vehicle this is for?

They are +52 offset. I can't seem to find a weight chart for them. All I have read is that they aren't as light as the CE28, but that they are supposedly more rigid. Will these stand up to daily driving and the unexpected pothole?

Any forged wheel should be able to handle daily driving.
+52 offset is pretty high so the wheels will be sunken in and could have suspension clearance issues.
What vehicle is this for?

+52 sounds like an S2000 AP1/AP2 size / offset.
