I'm going to get some aftermarket rims, or maybe the OEM anthracite Canistos.<br>Im not sure what to ask for my silver Canistos. They are in good condition, but the lips are chewed up (apparantly most Volvos are like this).<br>They sell new for $300 a piece, so I was thinking I would ask about $600 (wheels only/no tires).<br>Help me out and contribute to the poll.<br>Thanks.<p>

Define chewed up and post pics. That would give people are better indication to the condition.

FWIW, I paid $795 for a reconditioned set off eBay. They work and look great on our '99 S70. <p>If you want anthracite Canistos, consider getting yours reconditioned. It will be about 150/wheel plus the cost to fix the chewed lips ($75-130 for repairs from the folks that redid the Swedespeed project 850R). Good luck.

I would also consider reconditioning to make them sell for full value or do the anthracite colour (very nice) which will save you money and the hastle of selling and finding a new pair. Reconditioning really does work good, I did it about two years ago with no problems. <br>If your heart is set on an aftermarket set (I can relate to that) than again I would get your current rims redone before selling. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: How much should I ask for my Canistos? (Spearzy)

I can get factory Anthracite Canistos for $250 a piece, shipped to my door. If I sell my wheels for $500, that only puts me out $500 for a full set of OEM factory Anthracite Canistos. - I would rather do that then get my current ones reconditioned and painted. Plus my car wouldnt have to be out of comission while they were getting done.
