What are my polished Alcoas worth?

Well, I'm comtemplating selling my polished Alcoas. I created this thread just to get some good input before I list them for sale. They can make somebody a gorgeous set of wheels, but I've lost complete interest in my '98, and am considering selling it and picking up a different daily driver. The Alcoa's never made it on to the truck.

Here are 2 pictures from last fall of one of the wheels I worked on. It wasn't quite finished, but as you can see, they are much better than the shape I received them in.

How I received them

Anyways, if I finish restoring the remaining wheels, what are your inputs on a price? They won't be in perfect condition, but will be in pretty good shape. The wheels will come with LIKE NEW center caps. Seriously, these center caps have 3,000 miles on them, and are literally in like new condition, not even a scratch on them. They've actually collected a little dust because they've been on a shelf in my room for so long lol

I have 2 wheels polished, 1 wetsanded, and one still in poor condition. I am also contemplating selling them as is with the center caps, as well as the sandpaper, mini-powerball, and polish that I was using to shine them up. Obviously the price would be a little cheaper, but perhaps the buyer has more time and interest in them than I do too lol

Let me know guys, I'd like to figure out a direction, and get them listed soon.

He was a moron apparently. I'm assuming he wheeled them in gravel? That was my best guess.

These scratches don't come out super easy. I realize they're not show vehicles, but in stock form they also aren't rock crawlers

?? I'm just describing the condition of them accurately, so that people can give accurate advice.

As is, or after they're all polished up?

those sure aren't rock marks unless the photos don't represent how they actually look, mine looked the same and it took me no more than 10minutes per wheel to make them look new again. I used 3 stages of clearcoat wax with a mothers powerball and my cordless drill

I also think they are worth much more than $250, the older non polished are worth that

I'm saying they're worth that as is. If you made them look REAL good you could easily get $400.
