Default 15x6.5 Konig Helium on 205/50/15 Bridgestone Potenza RE-11 and Hollow Spokes

As the title says, these are 15x6.5 Konig Helium wheels, one of the most popular Miata wheels at 11.2lb each, in 4x100 Miata lug pattern. The tires are Bridgestone Potenza RE-11's, which are some of Bridgestones best tires. They are 205/50/15 size, and fit the wheels perfectly. The tires have TONS of grip, being as they have such a good tread, and they have a pretty soft compound for a street tire as the treadwear rating is only 180. Despite that fact, I got a reasonable amount of miles out of the time I drove on them. They have a little more than half of the tread left, and unfortunately one of the tires is no good as it has a gash in the sidewall.

So you are buying a set of wheels with only 3 tires usable. I understand that is a pretty big deal, since these are not bolt on ready.

Because of the tire issue, I'm only asking $350, obo I'm not really up for shipping these, unless you handle all of the leg work and figure out how I could do it, and pay for the shipping yourself. I don't see that being likely though. So prefer local pick up. Also unlikely, since hardly anyone on here is local...

Also, I have a set of hollow spoke stock wheels with a set of some badly worn Sumitomo tires, also one of them bad, so again, wheels with 3 tires. Blame hick Alabama roads with potholes big enough to disappear into. The wheels themselves are in good shape. Stock silver, minimal scratches, good center caps. I'll let these go for $150 for the set, or for $75 if you buy them with the other wheels.

Feel free to throw me an offer on either set, or both. I'm reasonable, most of the time.

I like my lightweight 6.5 Heliums and 205s better for feel than my wider 8in 6uls and 225s.

Bump for a good seller.

I'll be at Road Atlanta next weekend so if you end up with a buyer in Florida I can bring them back this way if you get them to RA.

Thanks man, that would be cool. I'm finding myself short on money, and these have just been sitting in my shed, so I figured why not try to sell them. I have too many sets of wheels and tires.

On another related sales note, I also have a set of 195/50/15 Falken Ziex ZE-912 with ~75-80% tread remaining. Great tires! $120, obo

Yeah, I seem to be collecting them, too.
