Hi guys!

I found these on CL 


they look rough but if they are straight i only have to fix them up and paint them black.

What you think AND would they fit in my lowered R53?

Thanks


Stefano

Those look pretty rough, he mentions corrosion as well, I'd be worried about integrity of the wheel material long term. You may want to have them inspected by a wheel service shop prior to buying to make sure you won't have problems down the line.

If they're ok, that's a pretty good deal

They should be structuraly fine but will need a good sanding, finishing and painting. Probably cost you about $100 per wheel.

They will fit. I would take them if they were closer.

Oh man... that ad is killing me.  Although I'm holding strong.  Mine are in great shape with sensors and damn near new tires.

They're more of a satin, not flat.
