17" Chrome Cobra R Replica Wheels

These wheels are generally in poor condition, with delaminating chrome and some areas of curb rash. The delaminating chrome is not only ugly to look at, but it causes two of the tires to slowly leak air from around the bead.

In short, they are certainly not show quality and might be good for media blasting or any other method you may use to remove the chrome plating and start from scratch.

They will fit an MN12 (see photos) but the offset is as close as you can get to the spindle. In fact, wheel weights mounted on the bead will actually contact the spindle. I always opted for the stick-on weights.

The tires are Kumho Ecsta - some have decent tread, some are getting close to the wear indicators. Asking $150. They are located in Pittsburgh, PA and I absolutely will not ship them.

Would it be possible for you to weigh one of these for me?

I'm definitely interested if no one prior took them.

Merry Christmas and thank you!

I don't have a scale to weigh them with, but they are certainly heavier over a stock aluminum wheel and tire.

I love the way they look on my car but I grew tired of filling up two of the tires with air once a week.

Boy.. tempting if you'd sell the two that don't leak from the bead.... I've got four and two that leak at the bead (badly) myself.

I was thinking of having mine chrome stripped and powder coated ($50/wheel to strip, then 50/wheel to coat)
