I have a set of wheels that I'm not using, but don't really want to get rid of If I sell them, there's little chance that I could find a set again because they're rare and discontinued. So I was thinking, what about renting them out? Someone could get some use out of them and I could get a little cash. Opinions?

Til one gets bent, curbed etc, they dissapear, and you are stuck with broke shit.

If you like em, keep them. Id never loan anyone my wheels, possibly my girl, definately not my wheels

Yeah, there are some things to work out, but the renter would have to pay for damage caused under his watch. And they'd pretty much have to be local to KC b/c shipping would be a pain.

paying damages to a rare rim? i dont think anyone would rent them. unless they roll around with bubble wrap on the rims. unless you lend them out for show car purposes only.

if u could figure out a way to make sure u were payed for any damage to the rims that would be a pretty cool idea. although, there is still the risk of having ur rims screwed up even if they do pay for the damage.

I guess collateral is the solution here.

i've never heard of anyone renting away their wheels. Wouldn't it be easier to just sell them and get the payment in installments?

yes, it would be easier. part of the idea is that i don't want to part with them permanently.

lol....2nd worse idea ever in the history of bad ideas.

the first being the idea to dump your exhaust in the middle of the car and leave your stock exhuast tip in back to foil cops from thinking you're riding dirty. hahahaha...it was posted yesterday.

I'd make a case for Social Security as #1, but that's just me. Guess I need to find someone local and trustworthy for it to work.

I woulnd do that, unless it's a family member. I know it's wrong, but I'd say they we're "stolen" and sell them.... :S Greed is in all of us!
When your talking rare, do you mean like "SSR reverse mesh" rare?? :p

They're actually the wheels in my signature - RacingHart CP-035s. I've had some good offers, but none good enough that I wanted to get rid of them. I don't know exactly how rare they are or how many were made, but I've only seen one other set on eBay in the last two years.
