Hey Guys,

As you saw, I just sold my speed3. However, I worked out a deal that does not include my winter wheels and tires. I have gone ahead and included pics of each wheel as well as a tread pic. These wheels/tires maybe have five thousand highway miles on them, and still have the colored strips between the treads as you can see... Basically barely used. The tires are 215/50/17 Dunlop Wintersport M3s. The tires themselves were $580 new. The wheels are off of a 2001 Mitsubish Eclipse. They are 17", and I paid $250 for the set. To have them mounted was another $80 and I spent countelss hours prepping and painting the wheels to my liking. As you can see, the wheels also have mazda center caps to keep a stock-ish look. The paint used was duplicolor wheel paint and was also clear coated about five or six times. There is no curb rash what so ever, and no issues. They are currently still on the car so will be off within the next week. These have been a great set, but unfortunately will not fit the new car... The total cost invested is about $950 plus hours of custom work to fit the center caps and paint. I am looking to get $650 for the set, and local pickup would be most desirable. One last thing, no TPMS. Let me know if you have any questions...

Haha, I totlaly forgot about that thread. I went ahead and looked it up to see if anyone else had responded. I went ahead and added a few details if anyone needs any help with the process. A lot of time goes into the prep on these, especially if you do it right. Thanks again for the comments!

Just as an FYI for anyone interested, here is the post which AxelaCubed mentioned... It has more details on the process and specs on wheels and tires.

Just so you know, I did refinish the wheels this past spring so the issues that came about from the wheels beeing mounted have since been fixed. Once again, in perfect condition...
