Default OEM Wheels Replacement

I'm debating whether or not to replace my tires on my oem 94-97 hollow body wheels which are in great shape, or to buy a tire/wheel combo from edgeracing. Selling my current wheels will play somewhat of a factor in my decision. How much do used OEM wheels and <mediocre tires go for?

I bought my 94-97 hollows for $125 plus shipping with generic tires with full tread. They dont go for too much on ebay. You can always keep them if you ever wanted to mount racing tires on them.

At around 125, it's probably worth keeping them. Thanks

On another note, I was considering painting my wheels gun metal. How are your painted wheels holding up? Would you do it again?

I have an extra set of Hollow spokes, They are in pretty rough shape, I was debating refinishing them as well.
