Yes the pricing is all wrong, apparently Pirelli says we can have them for $200 a set😜

where are the best online forums/markets to source used 4x100 wheels?

they seem to be harder to find lately especially in sub +40 offsets.

cheers

Thank you!

 

Yes, I did a lot of work the last 12 months on this thing. 

 

Puller, rolled, rubbed, you name it. - Still rubs on occasional full lock. Trying to figure out if I am going to keep running these wheels.

Purchased a set of CN36's from Longstone in early June before the price increase.  Put them on a set of "rescued" Minilites which have some minor bends but static balanced ok.  ($35 sandblast at the local Amish shop, Rattle can with Rustoleum self-etching primer and silver metallic wheel paint, coat with VHT polymer.  66mm Minilite centre caps )

Rare Minilite double fins wheels

The aluminum lug nuts are unobtanium.  I found several that had split barrels and others with slightly shorter length shanks.  I had to find a replacement for two and got pretty close with a Toyota mag lug nut with washer removed (far right in photo)

 

I got them from an older friend who has a nice collection of vintage BMW's.  I knew they had some slight dents from curbing over the many years but didn't want to give up on them since there aren't many survivors in my area.  The BMW tech. couldn't get them to balance on the Road Force machine but did static balance them "with a lot of sticky tape weights".  I can feel a bouncing vibration from the rear wheel with the worst tire but that's only over 70 mph, so they'll probably be the local summer cruising tires and NOT going on the 9 hour drive down to the Vintage at a steady 75mph cruise speed.
