Looking to trade the current MS6 18" wheels for some 17". I know a lot of you think I am crazy, I just dont like the fact that my tire options are so lmited.

The OEM tires have 10k miles, the wheels do not have a single mark... They were also treated with some crazy liquid the dealer offered ($500 for entire car, yes I am a sucker). Said it was used on AirForce 1. I have no idea what the name is... Regardless, the brake dust does seem to come off easy.


I will consider the stock oem wheels on the 6s but would rather some after market wheels (No Chrome do not even attempt to contact)...
BTW,
I have no clue what offset is, I just know that I need at least a 48mm-50mm for clearance. So take that into consideration with your offer (if you have aftermarket 17")

EDIT: did some reasearch.. realized the stock oem tires are selling on average for 300.. My tires from 600-800. A straight up trade wheel=wheel mytires=traded tires will require some cash. so if you are interested the trade will require $300 Obo.

No pics yet.. Tires are OEM Bridgestone potenza re50a.. Will get them at lunch. They are summer tires, very sticky etc.
My Webpage

What kind of tires do you have? With only 75% tread a straight up trade isnt the best deal... If you have the OE tires they are not what I am looking for... Get the name and I will look them up.


where are you located?

I thought the name sounded familiar. They are also Potenza G009 tires. I have the reciept for when they were purchased I believe and I can see how many miles have been put on them,

I am in Annapolis, MD.

Yeah are they summer tires only?
[/b]
I think so...I heard great things about them online for track use and on dry summer roads, but I live in MD and know how shitty the weather can get around here and read from quite a few people they offer little to no grip in wet/snow.

But, I guess you cannot have the best of both worlds.

How bad is the curb rash?


To answer the other q's as well... The tires are good for the summer months and rain... You would need to replace with all seasons tires or summer . If you go summer get a set of winter tires..


depending on what route you want to take, with winter etc... I would suggest the utlra high performance all season tires as the replacement. Apparently the Perelli P zero Nero ($125 each tirerack) is a good all around tire.

With you car, you also have the luxry to drop to a 16" winter wheel and tire... 16" is better for the snow and what tirerack reccommends.. You can get it for cheap used (currently on the buy sell).


If you do the comparrison just wheel to wheel, your wheels are getting about $250 (generious with rash)... Mine get a min of 500-650... I believe someone is asking close to $800


That is why I am asking for money.. Plain and simple. The tires are worth nothing, yours with 48k miles and my OEM sticky as hell wear out fast tires.


So, if you want to make an offer, just make an offer on the wheels knowing you will have to replace the tire. I will take this into consideration with yours as well.

I can tell you.. $250 with curb rash wont really do it... Close, but not quite enough.


PM if you are interested...
