Hey guys I'm driving a 2009 SE and I'm really not feeling the rims. I really like the 2009 SES Gen Rims but they seem pretty hard to find so I haven't seen much pricing on them. I actually came across a guy on Craigslist who's trying to advertise them as "Euro SVT" rims and is expecting to get $700 for them. He said they had some rash on one but he got it re painted. What do you guys think I should pay for these? I'm fairly new to the focus world and I don't want to get ripped off. Thanks![ffrocks]

pics would help as to the condition, if the tires are good then $700 might be spot on, the SES rims are pretty much the same rims as the SVT euro rims fyi

Tirerack sells them for $150 each (http://www.tirerack.com/wheels/WheelCloseUpServlet?target=runWheelSearch&initialPartNumber=M1007S177E&wheelMake=Ford+Racing&wheelModel=Focus+Euro&wheelFinish=Light+Grey+Painted&showRear=no&autoMake=Ford&autoModel=Focus+SES+Sedan&autoYear=2011&autoModClar=&filterFinish=All&filterSize=17&filterBrand=Ford+Racing&filterSpecial=false&filterNew=All&filterWeight=All&sort=Diameter)

Could you link me to them on tirerack? I looked but couldnt find them. I would post pictures too but I'm going off of Craigslist on my phone and cant save the pictures he posted. I'll post them when I get back from work. They look okay to me and the tires have 10000 miles on them.

Sorry didn't notice that on my phone. Just in general for a used pair with tires $700 is good?

That's top dollar for take-off's, not that it's a bad deal, but it's not a quick sale price.
Having myself purchased used rims recently, and they were all bent (repair doubled the purchase price), I won't buy used rims again unless I can mount them and check the runout.

Also I just recently talked to my friends sister who owns a ses and she hates her focus for some reason and might possibly trade wheels with me with a little extra cash in hand.
