    Default elite wheels + tyres

    im testing the water here...but ive seen a set of alloys i want to buy but i have to first sell the current alloys on my car. then the missus says it is ok (gulp!)
    i will put pictures on but seeing its midnight i will wait till tomorrow!
    the tyres have a little life left in them, 3-4mm and theres no curbing as i can remember.
    dont know what to charge for them so....erm...is £250 too much???
    please let me know, i can take paypal, i would prefer local pickup but if you want to organise a courier thats ok.
    i will put piccys on tomorrow about 6.30 ish pm

    If this helps, I sold a set earlier this year for £300 with 4mm of very good tyre - and that was priced to sell reasonably quickly. I actually sold all four separately to people as full-size spares, so maybe worth considering. I only did that once I knew I had four buyers, didn't want to be left with the odd wheel.

    biggest problem I find is selling large items up here in the north, you loose a potential £50-£100 because people won't travel/pay for postage.

    Only wish I had the cash and I would take them, only 2 miles from Boldon!

    right...the wheels are off the car and im off work tomorrow so i will clean them before i post the pictures. i noticed theres quite a bit of tread on two of the tyres as well. also have the original vauxhall locking wheel nuts too plus the other bolts.
    looking for offers around £250? but i know no one will reply till the pictures are up!

    P.S. will post picture of the new wheels too!

    first wheel perfect with the tyre brand 'maxxis' with 4-5mm
    second wheel some light scratches in centre of wheel but you have to be close with 'goodyear' tyre with 5-mm easily
    third wheel has a very small curb edge as pictured with 'maxxix' tyre with 4-5mm PLEASE NOTE i have seen a nail in the tyre, but it must of been recent as its shiny, i am not going to pull it out in case it has gone through the tread but nothing a repair cant fix.
    fourth wheel has one scratch at top of spoke in centre with 'michelin' tyre with 4-5mm
    wheels will come up even cleaner again as i used a little brasso on the first wheel between the spokes but im not going too mad on the cleaning front seeing they are off the car!
    i have mentioed the slight imperfections above ( i was being picky) but otherwise lovely conditions with good tyres.
    looking for around £250 if that seems ok..youre welcome to come round and inspect the wheels but pm me first to see if im in! prefer pickup but if you want to organise a courier thats ok

    does anyone want me to split the wheels up? say £60 a wheel? could be handy for spares or to replace the space saver in the boot.
    will only do this once they are all sold though..
    or £230 set?
