Default Reasonable Price for USED 6UL?

A friend of mine has a set of gen 2 15x8 6UL with silver finish but he discovered recently one of them was cracked so after talking it over for a while he decided to try and sell the three remaining wheels but doesn't know what a reasonable asking price would be. What would you guys suggest? Anybody need spares?

The other three are in good condition, just some minor scratches and what looks like hard water deposits on the lips. Would come without tires.

What would somebody do with 3 wheels? I think the best chance of selling them is one at a time to people who are in the same situation as your friend, either that or try to find one wheel for sale and then sell the complete set.

Its just a feeler to see what people would pay for one or two or all three wheels. 949 wont have the gen 4 available for a while and the spares they are offering now are for previous customers only. Not everyone bought wheels from them.

Used is such a gamble, new is 159 ea 3=480 +-= 540 shipped new. Depends on how bad you want to get rid of them I suppose. But I would think that 140-150 shipped ea in VG condition would be correct with pics of each wheel as proof of condition. Yea, used is such gamble. Why buy used old model when you can buy updated new for same price ?

Because currently you cannot buy new for almost the same price, and won't be able to for who knows how long.

Honestly I would put the wheels up for $150 a piece and go from there. You find the racer that needs them and they will sell.

Because you can't buy new at any price? If I had a set of 6ULs for sale today, I'd be listing them at ~100% of new asking price.
