What would e46f'ers OFFER for these?

Wouldn't mind a set of these rims for winters, instead of my basic black BMW steelies. (mine: 325ci cabrio)

Both of these look like a good deal, but I want a smokin' deal, as it's off-season for buying winters (at least in AD # 1).

Please post your thoughts...what would YOU get

Haven't seen either set in person yet, so not sure of curb rash, but I think the winter tires set will be better.

Ad #1: (winters w M wheels)

http://classifieds.castanet.net/deta...tires/1912470/

90% winter tread left, tread looks great, read HERCULES AVALANCHE are great aggressive winters, this guy looks like he took care of his stuff, not studded though, I think I might offer $500... ?

Ad #2: (summers, all need replacing, M wheels)

http://classifieds.castanet.net/deta...uded./1795458/

tires are shot, so really only be getting the rims, I think may have more curb rash than above, I think I might offer $300?

Wow, expensive.

I won this auction for these wheels 2 weeks ago for my summer wheels.

http://www.ebay.de/itm/271435008619?...84.m1439.l2649

So $700 seems steep. If that set were rocking a name brand tire (Avalanche Extreme?) then I would say $700 is justified, but I get the feeling you could get the same wheels and better tires elsewhere. Then again, I am not familiar with the Canadian tire market, so if these tires ARE good tires, then $700 seems fair. All the M logos on those wheels are gone, so they were probably resurfaced.

The second set of wheels are way to expensive for what they are.

IMO AD 1 seems like a better deal, especially if you can get away with 500. The wheels don't look too bad either!

thx 4 input.

Ad #2 . I looked HARD....could not see the M decal placement near center. Can YOU ?

Would those be knock-off repros? If so, I prefer Ad #1 wheels.

I'm pretty certain these are replica's of M-parallel wheels. M parallel wheels look slightly different



the differences are subtle but they are forsure different, so I'm led to believe that those wheels in ad two are most definitely not real M-Parallels

Option 2 is aftermarket. Option 1 I'd say $600 is fair and $500 would be you making a getaway.
