Default 16" wheels with tires



Since I got a set of 6ULs, I won't be needing these anymore. They were on my car when I bought it, so I really don't know too much about them. But IMO, they look great. I only have 3 center caps, which is how I bought the car. They show typical wear on them, but are straight and good.

Comes with Hankook Ventus HRII tires in 205 45 16. The tires are not new, but have good life left in them. 2 are a little lower on tread than the other 2, but all look like they've worn pretty evenly.

My bathroom scale says that the package weighs 37 lbs with the wheel, center cap, and tire full of air. Which is pretty dang good, especially for a 16".

$200 for the set of 4 wheels with tires and 3 center caps. No lugs included. Local pick up highly preferred.

Tread pics taken today. Sorry they're not as clear as I would have liked.

I want those...At all possible to meet north of Atlanta on I-85 or something? I kinda want to put those on my GTI.

Or we can work something out until the next time I come down...PM me...since I know you get a shitload of PMs a day.

I'm from Charlotte...

Yes, I actually live a good bit north of Atl up 85. It's less than an hour from the SC border to my house.

Either is fine. You want em? I've got about 4 people from the other .nets that want them too. You can have first right of refusal.

Like I said, they're in good shape, but certainly not perfect. IMO, they're an awesome looking wheel.

Whatever is easier. I can wait until pick up if you'd like. I'd prefer local inspection anyway.

I like the tires very much. I think they're pretty much perfect for a sporty DD type tire, though now that the tread is wearing down, they're a little loose in standing water. Otherwise, I find them quiet, comfortable, turn in is fairly good. They won't keep up with real performance tires in the mountains, but I was always able to catch up in the straights. If I were keeping the wheels, I would order another set.

Awesome, mark these as sold

I may have to order them again, they are fairly cheap.

These will be going on my GTI which isn't exactly a corner carver...yet, its my DD. I'm really excited about picking these up, I'll PM you in a day or so to get some more info from you (address, # and stuff) but consider them sold. As long as these things aren't bent to **** or have more rash than Brittney Spears'...well, you know. lol. SOLD

LOL, nah they're fine. They look like typical used wheels. Not perfect, but not fuxored either. Works for me.

I almost ordered another set of the same tires from Discount Tire Direct (?) when they were having the $100 sale. But I knew if I did that, then I'd never get the 6ULs that I've lusted after since they first came out.

I will own those wheels...yanno, in between boost...paint...life...and bills.

I'm not a perfectionist, for that price, as long as they are round I'd be happy...its gotta be better than the stock wheels on the GTI right now:

Maybe I'll get a chance to actually ride in a turbo miata if she is feeling well? To this point its only been SC ****...Neo told me I need to ride in a turbo one then I'll be screwed until I get boost myself.
