You need the size and the date stamp on those for us to see, but i'm interested in their value as well.

Are those 5 1/2 x 13's? I've got 5 of those, and 5, 5x13's.

1300...really? What are you putting them on and with what tires? I've been told the 5 1/2's will rub with just about every tire except stock sizes.

Nick,

 

They started life as 5 1/2"ers but have been widened to 7".  These are not factory rims.  And I do believe joekitt has flares!

Des,

I've had those same wheels and gave them away.  Now they are becoming more valuable but I'd still say $50 ea. maximum.  More like $25 each to sell quickly IMHO. 

 

I just bought a set of early pre-74 wheels and with media blasting, primer, paint and clearcoat I've spent close to $100 per wheel.

I bought a mismatched set of 5 steelies for $130 a few months ago. Some 5's, some 5 1/2's. I was willing to pay because I already owned another mismatched set that were on my car, and the purchased set gave me 5, 5's dated coded 1974, and 5, 5 1/2's that I plan to use.

 

He also threw in a nice door mirror, which was worth more than the 5 wheels!

Des,

 

I still haven't seen enough of your rims to even know their size.  My gut -- entirely un-scientific -- guesstimate of current OEM '02 steel rim prices is as follows, assuming good, un-bent rims:

 

1.  Round taillight 4.5" x 13, ET35:   Free to $50 each

2.  Round taillight 5" x 13, ET28:   $25 to $100 each (yes, I'm aware there are some $250 asks out there -- how's that going?)

3.  Square taillight 5" x 13, ET29:   $25 to $50 each

4.  e21 5.5" x 13, ET18:   $25 to $50 each

5.  Percent of '02 owners who even notice they're driving their '02 on three 5.5" e21 rims and one 5" '02 rim:   12%

6.  Number of '67 1600-2's I personally acquired with five 4.5" rims but sold with four 4.5" rims and one 5" rim:   1 -- oops!  Hey, it was 1974 and how the hell was I supposed to know the difference!   ?

 

Regards,

 

Steve

At least you didn't buy these "custom" bottlecaps, I'm speechless after seeing these!!!
