Cool Testing Waters: near new Konig FLAT OUT wheels

Like the title says: Konig FLAT OUT 15x8 +25 machined face finish. These are near new and in perfect condition. They only weigh 12.4lb!! They are paired with Falken 912 205/50/15 tires also in perfect condition, couple hundred miles on them, still look new.

Testing waters because: I love these wheels and will keep them unless I get asking price for them. Willing to ship at buyers expense. Located in Sacramento, CA for local pickup. $850

Some pics:

Sort of off topic.... But how do you like the Falkens for a DD tire? I need tires for my Konig wide-open's and just looked at these Falkens and wow they are cheap!

They're great, can't complain at all. For a daily, I think they're fantastic. Way more grip than other all seasons, and surprisingly good in the rain. Like I can't even break em loose on a stock 01 in the rain unless I actually try. I had kumho ecsta before that and its not even close.

That is weird because I had the opposite experience with the ones on my MSM that I just replaced. In the dry they were just fine but in the rain they were really scary. They may have been old. I might check the date on them when I go home to verify but I was not a fan.

That may be it. Mine are super fresh, I believe late 2012 is the stamped date on them.

I'm not all that worried about rain traction. Anything is better than the dry-rotted Michelins with 3/32 tread left that are currently on the car lol

Contact Fireinc, he needs 15" wheels. Then sell the tires cheap to BTmiata.

I'm a big fan of Falkens- I have a set of 16" Ziex 912's on my DD Miata, and a set of the 15" Azenis 615's on the FrankenMiata. The 912's are excellent tires that grip and wear really well, the 615's are a much softer tire that wears a bit more quickly but grip like a sumbitch. IMO they're both excellent tires for the money.

Thanks curly.. I saw this thread. I JUST bought tires though, so I wouldn't need the combo he's selling. Shipping would be a boner killer too. Love these wheels though, GLWS!
