too many rims, not enough customers, and too many varieties in inventory that don't sell.
Overhead, lack of day two upgrades, and ridiculous competition...
Say it anyway you like, in any perspective, and it won't matter.
Center Line, one of the coolest looking rims in the 80s, is out of business.
Jegs confirms it, "Unfortunately for all of us automotive and truck enthusiasts Center Line Wheels recently has ceased operation and is currently no longer in business. JEGS has a limited inventory of many styles and sizes of Center Line Wheels in-stock at drastically reduced pricing ready to ship today."
$280 a rim? Gtfoh. Nope. And that is why they are outta business. How does a rim they've been making for 30 some years still go for what you used to be able to buy a pair for? 25 years ago when I last bought a set of 4, I paid around 120 apiece. I know the costs of a lot of things go up, but not when it is already designed, molded, stamped, engineered and tested. Sure, some things like distribution and other incidental costs have risen, but the making of it? That is subject to efficiency of scale. Am I wrong?
