Value of my wheels

I'm posting this here because the Marketplace Discussion board is very slow. I'm considering selling or trading my wheels for the right ones. They are 8x16 OEM in front and custom 10x16 rear, welded one piece made from a 6x16 and a 7x16. The fronts use the stock spacer and the rears use a 1/4" spacer though it isn't necessary. They need to be refinished, the centers are painted and there is some slight curb rash on the rears. What ballpark would you guys place this set in? Pics for reference:

If the rears are a quality job and will be used for street use and the curb rash could be polished out I would say $1300 should make someone happy.

$1300 for the whole set? If that's the case I'll keep them and make some end tables like my wife keeps telling me.

I have some sweet BBS monstrous from the 80's I couldn't give them away 10 years ago. Nobody wants 16's. I thought about making coffe tables end tables, you name it, and there they sit in a corner of the garage collecting dust.

Hell, I guess I'll run them until I can't get tires anymore and then make something cool out of them.

The only problem is that with the 16" diameter, you still are limited to the 245 width which fits a 9" rim perfectly. Any width above that is racing rubber or vintage rubber from Coker.

It seems everyone is willing to pay lots more for the factory 7and 9inch for correct concours. I agree with you I would sooner have( and have had) your configuration or even wider on a 930. It seems the new buyers are interested in more show than go. I recently offered a set of 3 piece made special and offered thru Beverley Hills Sports cars early 80s ( retail was $3800 even back then ) on ebay 9 front 11 rears with Michlein tires and got $2500. So yours needing $600 in tires maybe $1600 is a better guess.

Let me know what size you have. I could always use some spare BBS if they will work on one of the cars I drive on track.

Thanks for the feedback guys. My wife keeps telling me to keep them. They were built by Gary Stratton (Sonjay) for a car he was running in the Le Mans Classic years ago. He confirmed this for me. He built 10 sets for the race but only ran two sets. These are one of the 8 remaining sets. My wife says I should keep them for nostalgic reasons.

Today was a wheel day at my friends shop. I disassembled a 16x11 (customers) and a 16x9 (friends) BBS Motorsports wheels. Then assembled a 16x9 for the customer. Would have been easier to switch centers, but my friends outer was hi-polish v. customers polished outer. 1 down and 1 more to go when the other wheel is brought in. What a PITA!

What you could do is just buy a pair of 7s and your car would be back to stock specs. Prior to the re-release of the 911 turbo in the US, the 930 came with 7s and 8s. Or you could always get a pair of 9s and run 8s and 9s on the car.

I like the 8s and 10s. If I were able to sell or trade them that's what I would be looking for again. Maybe 11s. It's more about going to 17s.

17s are where it's at for tires...right now. I'm putting 17s on my 930 and replacing the stock 7s and 9s that are on there now. I am probably going to build another set of the BBS Motorsport wheels in 17 as a backup set.

I guess I'll keep them as souvenirs and just buy a new set when the time comes.

what do you want for the rears only? what will it take for you to sell?

i would suggest for tires, 245/50/16 as opposed to the 45 series tire. the 10 inch wheel will nicely spread the tire so that there will be a proper sidewall height...not the skimpy sidewall as is on the 245/45/16.

let me know.

best,

pcb

Corvettes in the 80's ran 255/50/16, I'm sure those are still available....

That's what I currently run and they are still available. I guess I'll be keeping them unless someone makes me an offer I can't refuse.
