It's a mates sale, but remember these are GENUINE, worth in excess of $2000 when new for rims alone (and this set was the last set from our local ford dealer only approx 2 years ago)

Tyres for 17" rims can be had cheap anyway as they're so common now.

if there genuine that definatly makes them worth more but the only problem is they make these wheels after market...

well for 1000 their pretty cheap for genuine...good luck with the sale. Would have been interested when I bought the car last year, have 17" quakes on now, unless he wants to swap.

Firstly, no need to come in here telling him how much something is worth - does not help his efforts to sell his wheels.

Secondly - aftermarket copies are 17 X 8", not 17 X 8.5" like these genuines.
The size difference in the aftermarket copies is distinguishable in the thickness of the spoke and the overall dish of the rim.

His price-tag is fair IMHO...if they were mint, I think he'd have my interest too !

Cheers,
Steve

I've never checked but I'd imagine the genuine items would be lighter than the copies also (even with the copies being narrower!) which would make a decent performance difference.
