We are different. And in a good way too.

It's not our fault that you're asking twice what those type of rims normally go for. Hell, you can pay $440 for 4 Focal F01's or Focal F16's.

Why would you expect anyone to pay $700 for rattle canned 5 spokes with worn tires? They're not rare or even in perfect condition...

It's a shame, because if you priced these well, there are a lot of guys in the MA who'd buy them. But no one's gonna buy your stuff with that attitude.

This is a great forum, but you are advertising the tires as still being good when you as a mechanic recommend tire replacement at that tread depth. I work at a dealer as well and 4/32" is bald and useless for driving. That means they are worth nothing no matter what they used to be. I'd say we were pretty respectful about it. You can buy svt rims brand new from ford for less than you're asking. If they were rare, or professionally powdercoated, you would not be getting these responses.

This is a great forum. We're just giving opinions on a good asking price for these. Like he said ^ the tires are worth nothing, no matter the brand at that tread depth. You can ask $700 for spray painted un rare wheels as long as you want, but they won't sell. We all understand times are tough right now, but you shouldn't be asking more than the price of brand new wheels for these.

Brand new set of 4, $639, not purple or rattle canned with worn out tires, less that your awesome deal:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ford-Racing-...36ccb1&vxp=mtr


And you are right, we are different from other sites, we aren't ignorant and pay double for used wheels that what they are worth. I have seen this so many times in the bst, someone thinks their stuff is worth gold and gets all upset when everyone tries to tell them they are way off. You can ask one million dollars if you think they are worth it. Goodluck

You guys are wasting ur breathe and to someone who say 4/32 tires are useless ur an idiot plain and simple. Are they new? No, are they Going to last a long time? No def not but you can get some miles out of them and I've driven in dry and wet with them and never had traction issues. Secondly, I don't want 700, I only put 700 because you are required to have a price and I knew if I put what I wanted I would just get lowballed anyway. If I got 300 cash picked up I would let them go but that's as low as I would go
