<b>THESE WHEELS ARE NOW SOLD, PENDING FULL PAYMENT THIS COMING WEEK. I HAVE RECEIVED A DOWN PAYMENT TO HOLD THEM UNTIL THEN. If the deal falls through for some reason I'll let everyone know, as there were quite a few other people IM/emailing me about them.<p>Thanks guys! And thanks Josh! The wheels are awesome, and I have mixed emotions selling them. </b><p><b>OFFICIALLY FOR SALE</b> I received a ton of compliments and offers last year for them and have been planning on just keeping them. With school coming up I thought I would see about just selling them to pay for school expenses. They are all straight with no cracks, only real wear is the normal minor curbing that is to be expected from a used wheel. <i>Tires are not included, but I might be able to include a set of hardly used Nitto Neo Gen 215/35/19s for a higher price.</i> 19x8.5 with an ET (offset) of 40. These are authentic AXIS wheels, not the knock off ones EVOLVE started selling rebadged then took to another supplier.<br> These retailed for $380-480+ each, and are not made in our bolt pattern any more so they are nearly impossible to find them. The EVOLVE badged ones were $100 more each (and had quality issues) than the actual Axis version. I am interested in seeing if there is still any interest in them. <b>I'm thinking around $1350 shipped ConUS (insured) OR BEST OFFER (NOW JUST $1100 SHIPPED ConUS) </b> is pretty reasonable based on the rarity and exclusivity of these wheels for our cars. IM or email me if you would like any more pics or information. Thanks!<br>EDIT: I might possibly be interested in trades for some nice 18-19" wheels. I love Heico Volution Xs so if you have a set of those I would be pretty seriously interested. <br>Here are some pics of them on my car:<p><IMG SRC="http://photos-f.ak.fbcdn.net/photos-ak-snc1/v1684/25/1/775614441/n775614441_1161157_6070.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br> <IMG SRC="http://photos-a.ak.fbcdn.net/photos-ak-snc1/v2157/25/1/775614441/n775614441_1364440_8528.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br>And pics of the condition they are currently in, showing the minor curbing, no bends, etc:<br><IMG SRC="http://photos-g.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs167.snc1/6260_121737994441_775614441_2361174_8306924_n.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br> <IMG SRC="http://photos-d.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs187.snc1/6260_121737979441_775614441_2361171_4919829_n.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br> <IMG SRC="http://photos-e.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs187.snc1/6260_121737984441_775614441_2361172_2163296_n.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br> <IMG SRC="http://photos-f.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs187.snc1/6260_121737989441_775614441_2361173_5252786_n.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br> <IMG SRC="http://photos-h.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs167.snc1/6260_121737999441_775614441_2361175_2531422_n.jpg" BORDER="0"> <p><b>NEW PICTURES TAKEN 1-2-10:</b><br> <IMG SRC="http://photos-d.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc3/hs223.snc3/21072_230656079441_775614441_3167537_6126574_n.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br><IMG SRC="http://photos-e.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc3/hs203.snc3/21072_230656159441_775614441_3167547_7044153_n.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br><IMG SRC="http://photos-g.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc3/hs203.snc3/21072_230656144441_775614441_3167544_494397_n.jpghttp://photos-c.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc3/hs203.snc3/21072_230656154441_775614441_3167546_3412830_n.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br>Each wheel has this sort of minor curbing (which can be repaired by wetsanding with sandpaper or professionally as well).<br><IMG SRC="http://photos-e.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc3/hs203.snc3/21072_230656219441_775614441_3167553_655704_n.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br> <IMG SRC="http://photos-d.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc3/hs223.snc3/21072_230656234441_775614441_3167556_7476953_n.jpg" BORDER="0"> <p><BR><BR>

They are in pretty reasonable condition, just some minor curbing, nothing major. No bend, cracks, etc. I ran them for about 8 months before I took them off for winter.

I almost guarantee there isn't another complete set of 5x108 Axis wheels out there as they had very limited runs.

If you still have them when I rally out to Utah this winter I'll swoop 'em up but right now money's tight...

Man I wish I could nab these off of you too. You have the most crazy collection of wheels for Volvos I've ever seen!!! I just got the Iforged wheels back from the PC and they're sweet!! I posted pics in my build thread. If you still have these around tax season, I might be getting these too!! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: FEELER: 19x8.5" Axis Hiro wheels, great used condition, no bends or cracks (chillidawg)

Yeah, I just checked out the pics, look really good! Yeah, I've been tossing around the idea of PCing these ones for a while. They are one of my favorite wheels for our cars because they are simple and classy. If I don't end up selling them I will have them gunmetal with a lighter gunmetal lip.

Ok, these are officially for sale, $1350 shipped (insured) continental US, OBO. I have had like 16 people contact me interested in these, as they are probably the only set out there for sale, I figure this is a fair price to start at. Only selling to help cover the cost of my custom wheels. If they don't end up selling I will keep them, as they are in my top 3 wheels for our cars, which is saying something as I've gone through 9 sets of wheels in the past year, and this is the only set I've kept for over a year. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"><p><BR><BR>

Updated original post with a lot of pics of what the wheels currently look like. I had a few people asking for pics emailed to them but figured this was easier. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!

Bumpity. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> These wheels really deserve to be on a good-looking car and not in my storage. Wait...what's that sound? Is that your car honking for your attention, begging you to get it some awesome looking shoes? Yup. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">
