Before posting my wheels on Ebay next week, I thought I'd take a shot selling them to a fellow board member. The wheels I have for sale are from a 1999 528i. I've included a link to a pic below. There's also another link at the end of this message to see Gordon's beautiful car with these wheels installed. The wheels are in great shape and are about 90-95 out of a 100. They are all straight and the finish is in good shape. There were a couple of chips in the clearcoat, but I've repaired those areas by filling them in with new clearcoat, and then sanding and polishing the area smooth. If you're within a foot and looking for these places, you may see them. But from a couple of feet, the wheels look brand new. I have pics of each wheel and some of the touched up areas that I'll e-mail to any interested parties.

The wheels all have 235/45-17 Michelin tires mounted on them. Two are the Pilot Sport models, but they only have between .120 - .190 tread depth remaining. The other two have a fairly new set of the XGTZ4 models. These are all season, high performance tires that I run on both of my cars. Very responsive, fairly quiet with a very progressive breakaway. They're not great in the snow, but much better than a standard performance tire. These tires have between .235 - .250 tread depth remaining. If the Pilot Sports were replaced with 2 new XGTZ4's, you'd have a great set of wheels and tires.

These wheels typically go for at least $1,200 a set on Ebay. I believe there are some listed now at $1,600 reserve. I'm asking $1,350 for my set including the tires. The buyer will also be responsible for actual shipping costs from Kentucky zip 42240. If you're interested, please e-mail me direct using the link above. I can also provide pics if you'd like to see each wheel. If you want to ask questions via phone, please e-mail your number to me.
