Well, I got outbid on another auction. At this point my ideal search is:
- one 8x16 et22, or
- two 8x16 et11

Maybe I will end up splitting and stripping my chrome set of four, but I was hoping to pass those on as a set of four.

Here's a picture of the ideal set I was hoping to create, one that would fit even a Gen2 w126 or r107.


I ended up with only one et22 after winning an ebay item that I thought was two separate auctions for two et22 wheels. It turned out I just got two separate search notifications. Oops!

Anyone know where I can find one et22 or two et11 in any condition?

Thanks!

EDIT:
Here's a picture of what I've got in 16" 15-hole, wanting to get rid of all of it except an 8"+9" set that will fit my 73 450sl (without chrome)... hoping to be able to sell the four chrome when done at a fair price, probably $600, maybe even with a set of tires (but not the new tires that are currently on them without significantly upping the price).
Clockwise:
- One 8x16 et22 LO, shown
- Three 8x16 et34 evo1, one of the two good paint shown, third needs paint
- Two 9x16 et10 LOs, what I want on the back of my car
- Four 8x16 et11 LOs, the one's I want to sell for $600 when I complete the set... or I'll strip two of these, and have to sell the other two for next to nothing.



I also have four 8x16 et11 BBS RS009, and two 8x16 et21 BBS RS133 (to fit over front of a 560sl, just like the LO et22s).

So I can probably make a couple sets for most w123, w126, w107 owners when I finally get the wheels I want for the long term.

P.S. I'd love to get rid of the EVO1 wheels.

Hey Fonzi, why don't you have the chrome removed and polish them up?

I'm still having the occasional look for a set [or pair] of 16x8 et22's and one 16x9Et10 as well.

They are rare everywhere but especially over here in Australia.

Good luck mate!

If I just get my hands on one et22, I've got two sets, and the chrome can get sold as a set. The chromes are currently on my car, and every time I put them on I just think I really like that shiny reflective look, even if the lips are all peeled-up. The chrome IMO just works really well with the brightwork on my black car. Right now they give me the "rat-rod" look, and I'm going to enjoy it for a little while.

Since two chrome 8x16 et11 LOs will probably be worth basically nothing, I don't want to spend the money to split the set, especially while they right now have my best tires on them. I think if I don't find one more et22 by the end of the summer, I'll seriously consider stripping two, or all four. I'd just prefer to sell them as a set, hoping to get $600 for the four peeling chrome LOs. I've got mroe into them with having them straightened plus the purchase price, but it seems $600 is the going price for a set of 8x16 et11 chrome, and I think it is fair.

If you consider that it could cost $300 per wheel to polish them up ($100 for chrome removal, plus $200 for polishing), it seems to just make more sense to pay hi-dollar for a pristine set when the come along instead of taking the chance on the refurb. $1800 ($600 for set plus $1200 for refinishing) is a lot to pay when you don't know exactly what you are going to get at the end. However, $600 for a rare set of LOs that are ready-to-ride in "rat rod" condition isn't all that bad IMO.

So I wait for that one more et22.

Another option is to pursuade the 560sl owner that's about an hour away from me with four painted 8x16 et11 (needing some refurb) to sell me the two he can't use. Or just convince him he will never find the et22 he needs for his car and convince him to sell all four of his to me.

Since I've got my "rat rod" wheels, I will wait patiently.

If anyone else needs something I've got, please let me know. I'm in the Philadelelphia area, and have a bunch of wheels and tires in my garage that I'm going to want to unload soon:
- Four BBS RS009 currently mounted with tires
- Two BBS RS133 in boxes
- Three 8x16 et34 EVO1 wheels (currently on ebay for $60 each with or without tires)

Thanks to all for keeping an eye out for me. I'm really not trying to "corner the market" on Lorinser LOs.

PM not received.

These are going for de-chroming on Wednesday which will up the price significantly. If you want them cheap, act fast.
