Auction closed at $4000. I can't figure out why all 3 bids were by the same person. Was there a buy it now option?

No buy it now but a reserve price. New owner probably thought they would get outbid and raised their bid by bidding again.

The bidding history is odd. 4K is pretty steep for rims, but they are the nicest I have ever seen.
After spending days dismounting and mounting my combat rims, it might actually be worth it!

$4k is incredibly steep for rims, regardless of their unused condition. Even if they were in factory condition I still don't think I'd shell out that much.

For that condition I would max out at 2k

Tim/Niblet says a lot of things that are usually untrue.

There are consummate collectors that do not have a spending limit for rare parts, "A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush". Nice way to go if you can afford it. I'd pay it if I could afford it. For those of you who may be wondering, The A-5488 Lock Ring (Bead Lock) may not be a component of the A-5467 Wheel Assembly.
