For Example the Grid is $500 for 16"....and then you can get a set of 205/40/16 for $270ish. Factor in some shipping and you're near the $800-900 mark at worst with mount and balance.
They aren't cheap wheels...but then again, $500 isnt bad for a moderate weight set of wheels either...add about another $100 to step to 17" ($595 for SDR) wheels, and another $50-60 ($324)more for 215/40/17...
Tire example was Falken Ziex ZE512 (because they are awesome and non-expensive) and prices from www.victoriatire.com
- I make all my tire purchases from there. They are quick and the prices are reasonable, and they have more of the "tuner" sizes and brands...Wheel prices are from Jaydm.com
