$80 for all four ?? buy them at least thats what I would do. even if you fund out that they`re not good afterwards the local recycleing place will give you that much , :) nothing to lose. I like those rims not too fancy but looks better then the original.

what do you think?


What were they mounted on before? What is the lug pattern, offset, width, bore diameter? And last but not least, do you plan on using them on your van? Jim

Those other things will affect how they will work/not work on your van. Good Luck. Jim

Had I not found these...

I would have jumped on the deal.

I wanted rims on which I could mount studded tires. The tire shops charge $50 to mount/remount the tires each winter/spring when the studs have to come off. I found the wheels for $60 and they will pay for themselves in less than one year by not paying mount/remount fees.

The wrecking yards, here, are charging $26 per used steel rim. When I called the wrecking yards they only had one set.

IMHO, you've got a deal.

Ya, thats a good deal. I paid $50 for my set of 4 aluminum wheels, but that guy just wanted them gone. Those are nice looking wheels too.....they got a nice dish to them. 8-)
