Ive been thinking about selling the 18"VST rims (no tires) on the S60R. I got them from IPD a few months ago and they have about 3000 miles on them. All rims are clean, straight, and free of any curb rash. Any interest??? Im thinking maybe $900 shipped??? Is that fair or do-able?? Let me know your thoughts??? <p><br><A HREF="http://gallery.me.com/irollsolo708#100025" TARGET="_blank">http://gallery.me.com/irollsolo708#100025</A><p><br> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthdown.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (yellow95)

Very constructive commentary from all.<p>About as constructive as if I were to mention something similar about a set of SSR's that I see in the classifieds <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0">

Arthur. Please post in literate english so we can understand what you are implying. If your meager funds wont allow you to afford SSR's, I totally understand. If you are implying that $1300 is expensive for a set of wheels that retail for $2600 then you are misinformed or ignorant. Pick your poison.<p>As for the original posters wheels. He needs to ask more. $900 is a steal. Sorry Arty.<IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"><p><br>Gary

Re: (yellow95)

My "English" is very plain and simple. Although my sentence structure might leave a little to desire in my last post, it gets the point across.<p>To spell that point out: I am implying that we do not need comments from the "peanut gallery." The price he offers is very aggressive and any of us would love to swipe up a great set of wheels at a great price.<p>I am also implying that what this poster is offering is simililar in pricing to a set of SSR's being offered as well - and for the poster of that set to make the comments that he did towards this post can easily be said about his own post. I don't want to assume, but might that have something to do with said set not being sold?<p>Also, methinks that it's not my wording, as my name is not Arthur or Arty <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (AthruC)

Hello all,<p> I am getting several offers over my asking price and am being told that this asking price is too low. Perhaps it would be better if I just put these up on eBay and do an auction style sale. I have 100% feedback and aslo use paypal. I have been asked many questions about shipping too. I will only ship these wheels to continental US locations, and I don't want to pay for shipping. I would prefer that the buyer pays for the shipping or do a local pickup. I do have a UPS account and will go through the trouble of having them shipped, but I don't want to pay for it. Let me know what you guys think. Thanks again for all the interest/feedback.

Re: (AthruC)

Arthur- I was implying his price was too low. So...you think my wheels arent selling because the price is too low? Thats head scratching stuff right there. I do appreciate that you took all the ribbing I could muster and gave it right back to me. That is what makes these forums fun, no?<IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Gary

Re: (yellow95)

<IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> There's plenty more if you're interested.<p>I don't know why your wheels aren't selling and did not theorize as to <i>why</i> they weren't selling, I was commenting on the $new vs $used of your set versus the set mentioned here, and how your set is a "bargain" compared to the price that this seller was asking about.<p>I also think folks might also be confusing this set with the FORGED set. The price of the VST Monoblock R's really was not that expensive when offered new (and some might actually argue that they were a "bargain" for the weight savings - not as much as the Ronals, but these actually look pretty damn sweet).<p>And lastly, for the second time, it is NOT Arthur!

Re: (yellow95)

I actually heavily considered your set when you posted them, did research on weight/fitment, and ultimiately decided that I dispise the contour of the face of the rims (sorry). The way they attach to the "hub" and two-piece design make the rims appear smaller than they actually are.<p>I guess we'll see what happens w/ ebay, and until then I'll continue to work on my 18" Peg powdercoating fiasco.
