What size are they? They look pretty nice, but $200 bills :eek: I guess with new tires thats not too bad. If you get these, how much do you want for your 15's?

The price depneds on the condition of the wheels, those are a pain to refinish. I think 14's are a better size for the EA82's. I have 14" pugs on mine, and will have 14's on my RX coupe too, when the 5 lug conversion is done.
If you decide you don't want them, let me know, I want gold wheels for my '84 turbo cooupe with the gold trim...

they are 13's, which is fone with me, they come with BFG traction T/A tires with about 100 miles on them, 205/60/13

and actually i like the 13's on my coupe, i think they look good, i would get tires for my 15's but i cant afford them.

and i want $250 for my pugs, lugs and decent tires.

and i was just thinking, im going to have the guy bring them to my work and see if he will let me put them oon for a few days to see if i like them, if i do i'll get pictures.

but i dunno i might just get the tires off them and get some other rims because the whole theme settup for my car is red silver and black, so i dunno how its going to look with the gold rims.

with decent tires you all think $250 is too much, then how much would you offer, and dont say $140, thats crap, i see them go for $200 all the time.

and if no one wants to pay that much i know i can get that much on e-bay.

the tires that where on them before where bald with the cords comming through, the tires that are on them now have over 5k left in them. thats why the price went up.

Your asking more for the Pugs than your paying for the Enkies. Just becuase you are working at Aarons, you dont have to charge like Aarons.

Maybe if they had almost new tires on them, $200 would be a decent price. Most 15's around here go for $100 a set. If they had good tires, add another $100.
