New Used Rims,,

Before:

After:


Got them for $150,, This is just a temporay setup until I save up for some Eagle Alloys or some other alloys with larger a/t tires,,

Now I have 2 other sets of rims setting in my garage,,
For Sale:

$50 plus shipping or local pickup,,

$100 plus shipping or local pickup,,
http://dallas.craigslist.org/pts/167254586.html

I have no idea how much shipping will be, so if your serious about having them shipped Ill go to ups/fedex/dhl and see who can package and ship the cheapest,, I perfer pickup and cash, but may accept paypal,,

not too shabby for temp. $150 is a tad pricey though you coulda got some brand new crawlers for that.

Im hoping that with these new alloys I can get better mpg,, with the steel crawlers the best I could get was 17.4,, each one of those weighed 28lbs and these alloys weigh 18lbs, so 10lbs less a rim or 40lbs in spinning mass lost,, Ill find out in a week,,

anybody know if these are good tires?

Bah those are basically the black rims i'm looking for. I was really wanting to wait but seeing that every good deal is popping up I can't resist.. I'm thinking the ranger gods are favoring me for some reason. Anyways if you have the black rims still what would shipping be to 66102? And what size tires do you have on it in the pic?

Too bad you like **** rims dude. Those rims he got are much better than rockcrawlers. They're jus a cheap offroading rim solution.

150 isnt pricey for oem tires..

looks so much better. I'm not a fan of the black rims, it looked like you had four flat tires and had to use four spare wheels. Night and Day Difference!!

Due to their size and weight UPS ground was the cheapest. I was quoted $200 to have them packaged and shipped to Kansas City, KS. Then quoted $250 to be packaged and shipped to Florida. Im sure McAllen would be cheaper due to the fact it's located in Texas, but for the price you could just buy these rims brand new at any Discount Tire.

Local buyers would get the best deal.

You know, i've had to ship some heavy/bulky items, and i've noticed that Fedex is usually/always cheaper than UPS and you might even try DHL. Good luck with the sale.

The new wheels look ok(not a big fan of th tear drops), I kinda liked the old ones. Why did you spend the 150 on these wheels for a temp. set when you coulda saved the 150 for the set you want?
