You could probably get a nice setup (wheels and tires) for less than $800. It's achievable.
If you watch Craiglist, you can get them even cheaper than that. I got my EAP's with almost new tires for $450, and I've seen wheels with half or more tread go for as low as $200.

Make sure they're in good condition (rash, cracks, etc.) and you'll be fine. Just don't buy anything that was crap when it was new, lol.
I have one possible one. What do you think? (Just the rims for $225, maybe he'll sell it for $200 even)
