I will definitely keep you in mind, ebay fees are going to take a bite out of them too. I don`t understand why they did not sell either. I`d be happy walking away with $2k. Is that really too much for basically new tires and rims and Mopar TPMS sensors? I chose not to cheap out on the setup

I’ve been watching these on eBay and on here. $1900-$2000 is a great deal on these as the tires alone are $1780 after tax. I almost bought them, just because the price was too good. I finally decided to order tires for the black rims I have. But this is a screaming deal! I’d love to see these wheels on a sport Bikini color.

I totally feel your frustration. To be honest I just think the rims were a bit of a waste. They look like Sport rims and you spend $1500 on those with the TPMS and tax... I know you want to recoupe your investment but I think thats whats making the numbers so off.

My best advice is to just ride these out for 10k miles and get some use outta them and then youll be able to sell them for the exact same amout youd get now.

Whats the highest youve gotten offered? 1300?
  1. I Understand that everyone's taste is different, but to say they look the same would be a little off, because of the 5 spokes or because of the silver color? Totally different width and offset along with several other differences. I like them, you don`t, no big deal, that`s what keeps the economy going, I`m not one for black rims and off brand tires but I don`t knock it. I don`t want to debate wheels with you or anyone, to each their own, that`s why there a thousand different rim`s available in every color, style and size.I had seen your post about the tailgate. I had the Rubicon steel bumper and the 35" would not fit on the stock carrier. I put a Smittybilt re-locator that worked perfectly and wasted my money on a Mopar tailgate reinforcement kit. Total waste of money, the tailgate flex was still there. I purchased a Rugged Ridge Spartacus hinge and re-locator assembly $540.00 which worked great, I actually have another for a customers Jeep who decided to change bumpers instead. ACE and LOD all make hinge mount kits that will save your tailgate from cracking down the road. To answer your question about what I was offered for the tire and rim setup I have, it was $1900 and he was handling the shipping to CA
