Alloy wheels apart from the good looks, dont heat up that fast.
Hence they reduce the chances of tyre bursting at high speeds and are safer.
tubeless tyre dont burst when a nail penetrates and air reduces slowly (unless you remove the object) and thus they too increase the safety margin.
You are looking 10k-15k for rim sizes upto 14" and about 15k to 25k for 15"/16" rims.
Tubeless tyre depending on size should cost you between 2500-5000 each.
