Had these up for sale a while back, done a lot of work and spent a fair bit of money on them since then.

I've decided that 17s are too big for me - I find the ride harsh on the cabrio chassis.

They were pretty banged up when I got them, some with bends and all with curb rash. I had the two worst ones straightened and I re-painted them using the dupli-color wheel paint from CT. One of them could still use a straightening - it doesn't balance out quite right, but it's good enough to drive on up to 120 km/h.

Wheels are 17x8 ET20, 4x100 bolt pattern - fitment for E30. The fronts come pretty close to the struts on my car but seem to fit OK.

Tires are 205/40ZR17 Fuzion ZRi - one of them is brand new and the other three have tons of tread left.

I don't have any up close pics of the wheels at the moment... I'll try and take some tomorrow. Here are a couple of pics of the wheels on my car:

And pics of the size and offset printed on the wheels...

I'd like to get $500 for them. I've spent a lot more than that on them, but I know I won't get my money out - I just want to get enough to get a set of nice 15s for my car.

Will also consider trades for 15" E30 fitment wheels.

PM or email me at mckay.paul.d AT gmail.com if you're interested.

Cheers,

Hey Rich,

I can definitely stop by next time I'm on my way down - but I think I want to go down to 15s or maybe even back to 14s.

Apparently I'm a wimp for ride quality :)

Either/both. I'm in Ottawa right now but should be back in Waterloo early-mid next week. I can potentially arrange meeting/delivery anywhere between Ottawa and Waterloo (near the 401).

I also _might_ be stopping in Oakville on my way down, so I could meet near there.

Well, I got the rims back on the car tonight and I think I must have been in a bad mood last time I drove on them because the ride isn't as bad as I remember... so I've decided I'm going to keep them.

Mods, can you delete this thread?
