18 inch lorinser rims of a 2002 e430

I bought some rims from a guy thinking that they would fit my 1986 300e but when i went to put them on the offset was wrong so they were sticking out like crazy, so I am posting them here to see if i could get some of the cash that i spent on them back

To my knowledge all of them are in perfect condition except for one that needs to be repaired, but i got a quote and it would be 50-70 dollars to repair it. Tires are in good shape two tires are good, two need to be replaced but when i was testing i only mounted them on the front to see if they would rub, and sure enough they did. So i dont really know how much they are worth so if anyone wants to give me a ball park figure or send me an offer you are more than willing, I am buying some new rims tomorrow and need the money as fast as possible for these rims, so I am willing to accept most offers if they are decent, but i took a ton of pictures of them to show them off so pm me or post if you have an offer or know sort of what these would be worth

8 1/2 wide. Wow, I have never seen 18 offset Lorinser before.

I have a set + of 8x16 Et 11, and one more set + of 8x16 Et 22.

is that a bad thing or a good thing, and do you know what value these rims actually have

For us W126 guys, Et 11 are hard to find / rare.

The value of your rims depends on how much damage the one wheel has, and whether it can be fixed without any after effects, how much curb rash, and how good the chrome still is.
To re true and refinish (without a proper re chrome) is being offered as a special for $ 450 per set of 4.
I had a cracked rim welded trued and re chromed at a cost of over $ 300, but it was never 100%, and only good enough as one of the rear wheels.
In 3 years I have been unable to find the exact same chrome 8x16 Et 11 wheel as replacement. I found 3 polished aluminum though.

I would recommend better high def pictures of the wheels condition, and more of the wheel to be repaired.
How did the rim get a hole there?

+ unless you find a local buyer / pickup, for shipping purposes the tires will get expensive.

I bought 1 set of 4, with 2 wheels good, 2 dinged for $400 incl shipping from AZ to L.A., plus 2 new old stock display for $300 incl shipping from Houston TX. I believe shipping from TX was $50 per wheel. None of the wheels were shipped with tires.
Cheers

I can only speak for the W126 where 18 inch wheels make for a bone jarring ride, and with lower profile tires its a lot easier to damage wheels.
Most guys who bought 18's got rid of them and replaced with 16 or 17 max.
Good luck with the sale.

i will defintly get some more pictures of the rim up asap, but thanks for the comments, am i understanding you correctly that if i cant find and instate buyer it would be cheaper to take the tires off and just ship it to someone who will want them
