So I'm thinking of selling the wheels which are in good condition on eBay to try to get the most cash out of them ($250-270/wheel), and then selling the tires which probably have 50% treadlife here on the forum for idk, $300 for all 4, hopefully putting me at about $1300-1400 in the pocket. Then I'd end up going with some 19" VMR V701's and Michelin PSS all around coming in at around $2300 including tax, meaning my net expense would be about $900-950, which fits in my budget. Any thoughts on getting the most money as possible out of the OEM's without ripping somebody off?
here your options
1. save until you have enough money, stock wheel wont kill you.
2. 162 can be sold pretty easy. though realistically id expect someone to pick the up for 500-600 thats with tires of course. if you try to get 1000 or more people will ridicule you till you lower your price. you'll spend more taking off the tires and selling seperate. 50% tread is not alot.
3.you can search for a used set of rims on here for less then 1000. its possible. but may not have those pss you wanted.
