OEM wheels availability?

How often do these come up for sale, as dont want to jump on a less than perfect set if I dont have to?

What sort of prices are they, as hoping to sell my Rage's and have some money spare?

PS. if I attend meets am I likely to find a someone after a swap?

They pop up all the time in the for sale section, might be a few in there now, with rages you stand a good chance of a straight swap + money your way

Coincidentally that caused me to post this thread as they have slight curbing!

Hey leejay, what kind of condition are your rages in?
I have OEM's in perfect condition rears have 6-7mm fronts have 4-5 mm all are bridgestones. Maybe we can make a deal?

They are good condition - some have slight corrosion, but minimal (and common I believe).

Also a small curb mark on one rim.

Need to get some pics sorted, does not notice on car, if I was keeping them Im a perfectionist and prob would get them refurbished.

Tyres - need to check but think front two are nearly new and rear two arent much worse. When I get photos sorted I will measure them.

How do you envisage a swap going with the distance between us?

Well providing a deal can be sorted I don't mind coming to you (I do lots of long distance driving so don't mind) then swap on the day only take half hour.

Very pleased with the way this is going, holding off on suspension and FRSU until I do this.
If your wheels really are good and have no / minimal curbing them Im very sure we would come to a deal.

I will wash the wheels, check tread depth, and get some photos sorted by the weekend.
