Most places are asking over $200 a piece for > them alone). I happen to have a '92 9000T from which I removed the original 16 inch 3 spoke "Aero" rims and wheels. I got some SPG 15" rims mainly because I prefer the ride of the car with the meatier 15" sidewalls under it. The PO of my car lived in Boston and had apparently done a fair bit of curb climbing, but they are still straight and run true. They all need to have the outer edges cleaned up and one has a small blip in it where it knocked a curb. I will probably be selling them on eBay after I get them cleaned up, but if you wanted to make me an offer I would be willing to sell them fairly cheap. Maybe around $250 for the wheels and the 4 - 205/50ZR 16 Bridgestone Potenza RE730's that are currently mounted on them. The tires are a bit more than 1/2 worn out but still have some additional miles left in them, the ones that were on front are a bit worse than the rear ones. The rims could be fixed up by one of the wheel repair places pretty easily. For shipping estimation purposes I am located in New Hampshire (US). I could take some pictures of the wheels if you or anyone else is interested. Lemme know. Fred Wills (remove "no spam" to reply)
