Default 15" BBS Forged M-Edition wheels

I really hate to do this. Was birthday present from wifey, but we can't put rubber on them, and my stock 14s will suffice for now. Too many projects going on.


15" 4x100 BBS wheels from the '95 Merlot M-Edition
Have heard lighter numbers thrown around, but they appear to be 11-12lbs. Absolutely great looking wheels.
These do not have center caps, and could use a good cleaning. No major nicks or dings.

$450 shipped to your door.

TERMS:
Please read!



Please PM me if you are interested. Feel free to post any questions, or express interest publicly if you wish, but I will respond to PMs first. I will update status of deals in the thread when I am able.

I will try and give buyers reasonable time to submit payment once a dealed is agreed to, in completion, by both parties. I will run for the hills screaming and sell to someone else if I feel that you may flake, change your mind, just aren't sure what you want, or continue to stall. If a deal is reached with another party during this time I will do my best to notify you immediately.

Shipping assumes lower 48, continental US.

Absolutely no returns or refunds. Insurance above standard carrier coverage (eg: UPS covers $100 value) is on your dime.

I reserve the right to refuse sale to anyone based on feedback, correspondence (including deal planning), or my preference of who to deal with in the instance of multiple interested parties. Also, once the part has been paid for the part is considered sold, regardless of what type of deal we were working on. Part WILL NOT be marked as sold until it is actually paid for.

I also reserve the right to remove item from sale as I wish, should I not need to liquidate it anymore.

Please remember that we are all here due to our interest in our cars and this speed addiction we have. I am not out to profit, and this is a private party transaction with no obligations besides shipping the part to the address provided once payment is received. None of this can be taken as a contractual obligation that would normally accompany a storefront, and a verbal agreement does not constitute a sale...payment does.

Also, please no thread-crapping, and keep any issues to PMs. I will immediately delete posts that damage my credibility or otherwise harm my FS thread. I will also refuse to do business with you regardless of how much you pester me about wanting the part if you air out private issues.

I am open to offers, but generally ignore lowballs, or any offer that brings to price paid near 200% of shipping costs.

Feel free to review my iTrader feedback here, as well as my eBay feedback under the same user name. I have been scammed myself, and I assure you I conduct business properly.


Thanks for looking.

Sadly they are 15x6. Still great for the 205/50-15 selections.

205/15s recommended for wheel widths of 5.5-7.5 inches.

I did lots of reading on m.net when I was shopping for tires for these wheels, and many run the 205/15s.

I'm about 3hrs away...shame I was up there last Friday, but don't have time to run up there anytime soon.

I would be willing to meet you in Centerville though to save some driving.


Centercaps do suck, but honestly that's a deal with them, since you can resale those bastiges and end up with sub-$300 BBS wheels by the time you're done.

I tried to pick up a set locally for about 2-3months...it was crazy. Found cheap sets in Houston, Dallas, and even Oklahoma.

EVERY single one of them turned into a bidding war, were sold out from under me (the Dallas one was kind enough to let me know WHILE I WAS ON MY WAY ), or just stopped answering. They go fast, and I think a lot of folks are just buying and reselling.

I was originally looking for 14"s, and had found a set for $200...but each consecutive set was $50 more. Once they got over $300 (for a set I could of picked up in Houston) I decided I'd rather find some 15"s for that kind of coin. I picked these up online and had to pay to ship them, but still wasn't bad.

I'm asking less than I've got into them, and am pretty much losing on shipping charges twice over.

Good luck with the hunt though...they are great looking, strong, and light wheels that look and feel great on the Miata.

Bump, terms of sale added.


Also, since I just knocked $100 off the price, I'm not really looking for offers lower than that right now.

I've NEVER been pulled over on the bike in over a decade of riding, and then starting about two weeks ago I was on the side of the riding talking to Troopers and Constables 3 TIMES IN ONE WEEK! Funny thing is I'm on the same roads I ride every stinkin' day, driving the same way I always do, which is about 5 or so over, but responsible.

Can't believe this crap...but have over $600 worth of tickets to pay. I also traded my hyperfast bike since I have no business on a 100hp machine...but found out I have to pay nearly $400 in registration, taxes and fees on my bike since I never transferred the title. That HAS to be payed this week (going today) to get the title for the guy who traded me the SV650 and Volvo.

Hopefully I stay out of trouble in my two new slowmobiles. This crap actually has me reconsidering the turbo build 2.0 since I got pulled over A LOT in the Miata. I commute nearly 1000mi/wk, so am on the road a lot. Combine that with almost always being in a hurry, and driving eye candy vehicles, and I get more attention than I care for.

Some better pics, all four wheels, with close ups of one decent spot of rash, and the other very minor bit:

Bump.

Gave a local guy a month to make this happen, at my "hurry to sale" discounted price...and he flaked.
