    MAYBE selling stock 2015 mirage alloy rims

    I'm in Syracuse would anyone be interested in these? I'm trying to switch to some 15 inch rims since i live in pothole Syracuse. They have the stock tires on two of them at what i would say at 75% life. the other 2 are not worth mentioning.

    You may consider just to drive the tires until you wear them out before doing the upgrade. Else you are going to lose alot of cash since selling them used and having to buy the 15s at retail price.

    I had a car that I upgraded to bigger wheels and nice rims, even lowering springs and it cost me a ton of money to do it and after that I had to get alignment done at a specialty shop (over 350$ each time). When I finally sold the car used I did not get any extra money for it. I regret the decision because it was a huge money pit I probably wasted around 2 thousand bucks

    And that's why I bought a Mirage.

    It's all too easy to spend money on a car that you won't get back in the end. And for what - ego? It's like giving money away.

    There's some folks where it's no big deal to them, or maybe the car is either worth it or holds sentimental value. Overall cars don't typically appreciate in value.

    I sold a perfect set of these wheels 2 years ago and couldn't get any interest here. This is a great place for sharing information, but not so good for selling stuff (unless it's dirt cheap ).

    I had to sell mine on eBay...and even then I only got $200 for basically a brand new set of wheels.

    On the other hand Top_Fuel did it right. Though he didn't get top dollar for his wheels, he got the best price he could since the set didn't have much wear (and someone got a great deal on a set of tires) and it helped fund his goal of a nicer set of wheels.

    Finding a used set of 15s can pay for themselves too.

    Here's an example of what I'm talking about: Craigslist finds

    I have some new posts for that thread.

    Rear axle alignment problem? Have you had it checked? Don't chew up your new tires!

    Good catch! I didn't even think about that.
