View Full Version : What would you pay???

A buddy of mine has some original gray C6 5-spoke wheels in 18/19 he is trying to sell. I am thinking of buying them. The fronts have new tires (not sure the sizes) and the rears have tires with about 80-85% tread life on them. He is asking $700.

What would you pay for them?

It's not a trick question. Just wondering what they're worth. I don't want to pay too much. I already have CCWs on my car and just want a different set of wheels to switch out. I plan to talk him down some, but also want to be fair bcuz he's a friend.

Any feedback appreciated...

700.00 is not a bad price for rims and tires dont bet him up to bad.

I was kinda thinking the same thing, but still didn't want to pay too much. Most people ask higher than what they are actually willing to let them go for.

Oh, crap! I just realized I typed C5 and they are C6 rims. He is selling C6 5-spokes wheels.

Sorry. I will edit the original post...

Just the original gray...

Since he's your friend, I'd offer $550-600. $700 isn't bad though. You shouldn't run into any problems fitment wise. However, if I'm not mistaken the rear diameter with tires runs a little taller than the diameter tire size for f-bodys and you'll need a spacer in the rear to have the wheels fit properly and be able to clear the inner fender well.

That sounds fair. Just didn't want to insult the guy...
