    I really wanted to get these and my wife said DO IT! So I bid on these and then the person who listed them decided to cancel all bids and then raise the price. He started them off with a 99¢ with a BUT IT NOW of $1,200. Now after he relisted them, he wants $4,000.00 which is way to high.

    So I might offer, but now I am hesitant!

    zero feedback and even at 1200 you could buy close to the same thing at any other major reputable online vendor. id pass on that.

    Holy shit. I wouldn't give anything more than $1000 for those. They're not that rare are they?

    x10 those are not worth anything near $4000. For that kind of money you could get a set of forged wheels that are brand new in the sizes and offsets you want

    I guess they are rare wheels in good shape. but not rare enough to bring BIG money.

    Plus I looked up the tire on Walmart.com ( Nexen N3000 )and they sell for $145 per tire. $580 total for brand new, but his listing says he has 2 tires that are only 80% which then decreases the value of the tires to maybe around $450?

    I don't really know what the wheels ( with Tires) are worth but I would say without seeing them all, about $850..I dunno.

    these go up for sale every now and again for closer to $1000-1500. that's just ridiculous. if you really want them, just keep a look out on the saleen forum

    exactly... first of all.. if you have all 4 tires/wheels... why wouldn't u show them? second.. probably means the others are in shitty condition... only reason you wouldn't post all 4 if you had them... idc if he was selling for 4gs or 800 bucks.... I wanna see what im buying in full

    Both sets of wheels look exactly the same.


    Either way he's nuts for that price, esp. with those shitty Nexens wrapped around 'em.

    Nexens are that bad? I didn't know. I knew they were cheap, but I guess the saying goes you get what you pay for! So something sold at Walmart is going to be Cheap!!

    Yees. Nexens are turrable. I had a set on my Rs when I got them and every time I hit the gas they'd break loose. However when I put my BFG's on, world of difference my friend

    they were actually 500 and the second i bought them i took them to get colormatched to the car. they are just wheels.


    i just found a set of roush wheels in chrome for 3XX on craigslist yesterday. if you are patient, you can find it.
