i have some 16"s. i would only be willing to trade for some Cup style wheels though.

but heres a picture to see what they look like on my car. i personally don't care for them, i'm just too poor to afford new rims.

What don't you like about 'em? What size tires do you have on them and how much are you asking? PM me if you want.

not sure if you mean me or not:

The 15's are Alloy (siver color) and have Pirrelli 215 60 15's that are almost new.

I just want a set of polished. I think they look better.

Mine are in pretty good condition, no major marks, I need to really clean them up though.

If it was me you were referring to, Let me know and Ill post a pic.

Dave

Hmmm... I kind of dig those too. I wonder how they'd look on a gray car.

I've been thinking about whether I want to do this or repaint my phone dials the next time I go in for a new set of tires. Or... whether I should just replace them with something new.

Yeah, I had a shop qoute me $550 to polish them. There is a new chrome powder coat i looked into as well, but it was expensive.

But I bought a set of polished 16's for $500 from Don at GPR Parts. Should be here next week.

Id think they would look awsome on a grey car.

So, I have a set of 15x8 (set of 4) phone dials for sale with almost new pirreli's if anyone is interested.

I was just quoted $100.00 a wheel to polish phone dials by an outfit in Santa Ana, Ca. This is without having to dismount the tires first.
Mambo dave, Where are you located?

I may be moving to the Lexington N C. area within a year. Are there any Pelican people nearby? Are there good Porsche mechs in the area?
