03.28.2013 update: note that it can take up to 1 week for me to get these shipped. the reason is that my schedule is getting a bit more hectic over the next few weeks. i just wanna put that out there so that the buyer knows in advance.
also, i will be willing to sell these wheels with brand new hankook v12s (245/35/18s and 285/30/18s) for $3750 + shipping. i will throw in mounting and balancing costs. for those are wondering about my selling the tires separately, i will not being doing that at this time.
they are brand new, but not technically BNIB since they were removed from the boxes to be inspected. no tires were mounted on them. i do have a set of brand new hankook v12 245/30/18s and 285/30/18s for them, however.
unfortunately, at this time, i do not have really good photos of them. still, i figure that i would post up this thread. honestly, there is not much of which to take pics since the wheels are brand new with absolutely no blemishes. i will try to get better pics up soon.
these were ordered directly from forgeline back in 10/2010 with specific fitment for my e46 m3. iirc, it took about 3 weeks for them to be built to order after i put down deposit. wheels have been kept in their original boxes all this time.

**i am in no rush at all to sell. my reason for selling is that i decided to get another set of wheels for my car. i think that these will be better used by someone else.
**also, i am not interested in trades.
these wheels are at a shop in the philadelphia area and will be shipped out directly from there. Pick up at the shop can be arranged for local buyers, of course. wheels will be shipped in their original boxes and packing material.
teaser pics that were sent to me:
i ask that folks refrain from comments about delays in completion of my car, etc. as well as any negative comments about the wheels or pricing. if you don't like or don't care, just move on along.
thanks for looking.
