5 Spoke 16's

How much would you pay for a set of used 5 spoke factory 16's ? I found a set at a thrift store of all places in perfect condition at $35 a rim. Opinions?

Seems reasonable.

Scrap price for a set of 4 is ~$40.
But you'll find them selling for ~$125 - $200 on Craigslist or here.

Hell, if they're at a thrift store I'd be willing to bet they'd take $100 for the set.

Yep.

If they have been there more than a week, offer half price and they will be glad to take it.

(I also have a set of 16" 5 spokes w/ tires in socal, available for cheap)

Aside from negotiating with them, 35.00 sounds like a very fair price to me, especially if they're in reasonable condition.
