Default FLAWLESS 17" Long Beach Rims + Tires ONLY 1600 Miles FOR SALE

I'm advertising on behalf of my best friend.

These are FLAWLESS - AS NEW!!!

Factory OEM Long Beach Wheels with practically new Michelin tires off a brand new 2003 which was is getting brand new 18" prodrive wheels and tires from TireRack.

There is NO Marks whatsoever on these wheels!!!

...and the tires are just about like new at this point with well under 2000 miles!

These are the Factory rims that came on the car with the factory mounted Michelin Pilots sized at 225 45 17.

Price is a FIRM $1000 and local Chicagoland pickup is welcomed and encouraged for cash 'n carry or they can be shipped via UPS at the buyers expense! Email me or post here if you are seriously interested in these!

The new owner will NOT be dissappointed as these are factory OEM like new and NOT cheap aftermarket replica take-offs with cheap Kumo, Nitto or other off brand cheapie tires often seen elsewhere for sale for less $$!

Price is to high!
These are going for between 450 (no tires) and 800 new tires everyday on the vortex.
750.00 and I will drive to you to pick-up.

These are selling for over $1000 on ebay! A set just sold recently for $1030 and they already had 10,000 miles on the tires!!!!

These are OEM -- not cheap aftermarket replicas!

They are AS NEW!

These wheels go for over $400 EACH at the dealer and the tires are over $200 EACH at the dealer.

The price is FIRM.

If you think you can buy them elsewhere for cheaper in better condition, then by all means, DO IT!

You will not sell them here or on Vortex for that price.....
So don't waste your time! put them on E-Bay now.
I want a set I am not going to pay that for them.
Good luck to you.
Buy the way,on my last Ebay deal, I got Ripped off and am still trying to collect my money, I am getting ready to file charges on this guy!

no problem.....

I see you aren't as picky about condition or mileage or type of tires so you should easily find a set in the price range you are looking for.

Ebay offeres buyer protection which vwvortex or this forum does not. If you had a problem on ebay as a buyer, you should be covered under that policy.

I already have a positive reference from selling my own stock 16" rims and tires to someone else on this forum and a very good ebay seller record.

Good luck to you too!

I saw a set of wheels alone sell for $640 on ebay and for $550 on vwvortex so obviously Ebay is the better route to go for pristine wheels and tires!

...like I said, I thought I'd try the forums first... no biggie if a forum member doesn't jump at them...

ceboyd,

The tires are very expensive in 17" and run about $150 ea alone. That's $600 worth of tire alone. Those rims are great rims and a good size. Again, a set of cheap Motegi MR7 or MR8 in that size, 17" go for $130-$140 ea. So your deal is a good price, no spacers needed and VAG approved.

If I had the money I'd jimp on the rims your friend is offering. On a TDi though your Long Beach rims weigh in a lot. Oddly I just bought a set of forged alloyed Audi TT 5-spoke rims and tires for $800 on Vortex [17"] and weigh about 7 lbs less a rim than the Long Beach. On a TDi static weight and unsprung weight have mileage impact, some big time mileage impact. That's why I run a set of Motegi MR7 20 lb 16" 7.0 width rims [$105 ea.] for the winter time. Those MR7 rims weigh in at 20 lbs ea. [16"] and the stock GLS alloys were about 24lbs [15"].

So all I'm saying is, your deal is sweet cuz it's a great tire, great size rim, good looking rim, perfect shape and longevity is good for 40,000 miles on that rubber alone.

On a TDi it's a 10% reduction in gas mileage and... well, these guys are big on gas mileage. They're buying an expensive diesel not for VR6 or 18.T looks, ...at least that's my impression.

Good luck.

MD
