testing the waters for 1996 stock T-bird Wheels

i just recently sold my thunderbird and bought a 2002 mitsubishi lancer and i sold it with my 17 inch wheels on it and now i have the stock wheels left over. i am just getting ideas on how much you all would suggest i sell them for. the tires are practically new they have maybe 1000 miles on them.
Here are some pictures:

all four wheels

Wheel 1

Wheel 2

wheel 3

wheel 4

This is the only mark i saw on the outside of the rims and it is located on Wheel 1

and the last picture is of the tire size they are 215/75R15


if i could just get a little feedback on how much to sell these for they will be in the for sale forum very soon.

any help would be appreciated
David

As far as the metal goes, I paid $100 USD to 5150Tbird for the same wheels. I use them as winter mounts. Any blemishes were on the inner rim.

If the tires are rated for 20,000 miles and you have 1000 on them, maybe consider 90-95% of the new value, or less if you want to get them sold faster.

Cool

Why not sell the Lancer and keep the rims. Kidding! Here ln my area, those rims would sell at a yard for about 75.00 a piece regardless of rubber. Food for thought. Now, about that matter of selling a T'bird for a Mitsubishi..........

yeah i knew i was going to get some grief about selling the bird but i needed something more reliable because i am driving alot now between school and work and the tbird had to many things wrong with it that i did not have time or the money to sink into it. so my solution was buy a new car that is better on gas and a lot more reliable and so far i am already starting to be able to save money.

and also if anyone is interested in the rims and they want to make an offer on them i am ready to sell them asap.

keep up the suggestions

Id buy them but after shipping I dont think it would be worth my while. That and I dont know what you are looking to get.

Some supercharged cars blow.......Others just pick up and move.
