I thought I would head down to the local Kaltire and check out some prices. Wont by from them but thought I could get some info and approx prices. All I can say is my current tires will be fine for now. New 18" wheels with a BFG AT was about $3000.00.

Ya, the prices are sky high now (especially for the really good wheels). I remember back in 1969 when I bought my first set of Cosmic "mags" for my old Volvo 544 - the set cost $160 plus another $160 for Dunlop SP "radials". I was in shock for months over the price but one summer Sunday drive up to Whistler on that twisty road made the cost worthwhile.
I wonder if you can buy anything new in a single 18" aluminum wheel for $320 these days....
When I bought my american racing rims, and paired them up with my mt/r's for my 150, the cost on them was around 600 a tire. That was for 16 in tires too! Since I worked at the tire shop then I got them for alot less, but still!

I don't know how you all feel about used wheels/tires, but I have stumbled on some excellent deals in the Buy/Sell here in Vancouver. One problem with old tires (older than about 5 years) is that the rubber compound gets harder and so the tire doesn't grip so well as on fresher units. Still, sometimes you can get really good deals at good (wife friendly) prices. Cheers!
