My Ride: rolls only Michelins
FS: HRE 447R 18" non-M...

My son bought these wheels using my member's name while I was out in Taipei on business for his '04 325ci, and tried to sell them on here a while back to make a profit. I gave him a $2,000 budget and he bought these for $1,425; which I thought was a pretty good deal. What I didn't think was good was the fact that he tried to resell them to make money, when I gave him plenty enough of an allowance to spend on wheels. Anyway, I am trying to get rid of these because I am getting sick of seeing these 4 big ass boxes sitting in my garage (it is still snowing in Michigan). Pm me if you are interested, I have a bunch of pics I took before I put them in the boxes.

The Specs: 18x8 HRE 447R 40mm fitment (all 4), 235/40-18 Nankang tires with roughly 80 to 85% tread remaining. I am just looking to get rid of these damn things!



Thanks,

Troy J

also he told me this through pm...

"These wheels have never had damage done to them. I checked with HRE and they never worked on these, besides when they built them. The previous owner sold them because he said he wanted to go staggered for a wider size in the back. These weren't driven in the snow or on salt. I basically put these on pulled them out of my company, took pics and then took them off. They have been sitting in a box for the last month. These look great and are a great price."

but on the actual ebay description they say that they have been repolished... and they have roughly 15k miles on them.....

im just watching out for other fanatics.... dude if u want to sell a product be real about it....... do u think that you would screw me over??

Sounds fishy to me....

First:

Buys HRE wheels for $1425.00......(MAN THATS A GREAT PRICE). Blames his kid for screwing up....BUYS THEM TO MAKE MONEY? Dad's in Taiwan....no clue what his kid is doing....kid basically lies to the dad.......??? Pretty bad lie at such a young age.

Second:

His son, which means that this "FATHER" is probably late 30's/ over 40 (estimate) is trying to get rid of these wheels.....yet he curses in his post. Not polite for a "FATHER" to curse like that.

Just my 2 cents.

If you had children, you would see where I am coming from. When you give your son $2k to buy wheels and he gets used wheels that he trys to sell for more money, while waisting his time - it gets old quick. I am trying to break even for what my money bought. I am 36 and my son just turned 19, I doubt anyone else on this board has that kind of age differance. I was in Taipei, Taiwan at one of my dealer showrooms. Why am I trying to explain my life to a stranger? Basically I am just trying to get rid of the wheels and that is that, even if it was a good price or not.

No offense, but you have to admit with all these "oddities" swirling around these wheels, how can anyone really trust what you're saying? Also, based on the Ebay auction that your "son" bid on, you paid, $1325, yet, you state that he paid, $1425.

Also, why was your "son" never mentioned in all of the transactions that you mentioned here -

http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=229674

Honestly, from some of your posts, you seem like a stand up guy and I was really tempted to make an offer. But with all of these other disconnects (and in some cases, outright lies), it's hard to buy anything that you're saying.

Umm.....I knew these wheels looked familiar!!!! BUYERS BEWARE!!!!! I just researched this guy! This is the auction from these wheels and he is located in MICHIGAN just like his EBAY ID!
BUYERS BEWARE!!!! These were damaged wheels that he thinks he can polish up and charge $1K+ more than what he paid on EBAY while lying to us Fanatics about where they came from and how the car was in storage and he is the original owner etc etc etc!!!!! CROOK!

also he gave me the HRE serial number from the inside of the rims (all real HRE's have serial # and i called thim today and this is what they said...HRE said the wheel (447R) is actually a 18 x 8.5 with a +36mm offset. If you know the origianl owner's name, they can pull up any repair orders done. HRE's number is 760-598-1960.

Buyers beware. this guy is a kid thats scamming trying to make a quick buck by flipping parts. I dont care if he does this, as its a free market, but when you intentionially DECIEVE people and lie about the parts origins, you are committing FRAUD!

I would stay away from this seller. If he has soo much money, he should stop trying to nickel and dime these parts like a low class beggar.
