Selling my MS3 factory wheels as I want something else. Wheels were only on car until I got it home then taken off and hauled to shop to have tires and TPMS sensors removed. There is one wheel that has some undercoating on the inner lip as shown in the pics. Dealer tried to clean up but couldn't get it all, neither could I, you may have better luck.

EDIT: Got a bonus from work so my gain is your gain. PM now before they get dusty. :lol:

Asking $800 $650. $500

Specs: 18x7 +52.5 offset. Weight 24 lbs.

PM if interested thanks.

Edit: I managed to get the undercoating off of the one wheel so it is now clean. Called a few wheel/tire shops and they recommended trying denatured alcohol, which I have a friend with a sign shop that had some, worked like a charm. So I'm getting rid of the undercoat pics to save bandwidth.

Re: FS: Mazdaspeed 3 Wheels

For those who are curious, these wheels weigh 24 lbs. The stock 17" rims weigh 21lbs while the 18" RX8 rims weigh 22lbs as a comparison.

Checked with Mazda dealer to get price and was told $1953 for a set of wheels only. If you can get a set of Speed 3 wheels with tires for $800 I'd go for it. My price is about 40% of Mazdas and negotiable, I just felt that was a fair deal for a set with only 50 miles on them.

Just edited my original post to show the weight. I took the wheel to work and weighed it on our shipping scale. I figured these weighed a little more than the RX8 wheels due to the spokes everywhere.

Don't get me wrong, they are a very nice set of wheels especially for a car in black. :D

Copper red, tinted, with JDM rainguards, a big Corksport exhaust tip, and INGS replica eyelids =)
I think I have seen the other cars you are talking about though. You work on base at all?

Re: FS: Mazdaspeed 3 Wheels

Nope. Work at associated fire protection on 24th and martha so I go through bellevue everyday. Copper red is a great color whish the speed had that option. Four colors just isn't enough to pick from. Mine is black with no mods yet just changed to the wheels I had on my '04 which are black with a polished lip.

Re: FS: Mazdaspeed 3 Wheels-Price Reduced

Dropped price some. Guess maybe I was a little high or everyone's just cheap like me. :)

still have these and about how much would shipping to rochester, mi 48307?

Thanks

UPS calc comes up with about $73, but I found out when I shipped the tires that the dimensions play a big part also as it raised the cost estimate on those by $20 once I went to ship them. So to be safe I'd say figure $100.

Re: FS: Mazdaspeed 3 Wheels-Price Reduced

Yea $100 total shipping, probably closer to $90, but after the tire experiance I'd rather estimate a little high.
