Wheels / rims and Michelin tires

Have a set of four 8 hole wheels and Michelin tires. Two tires have 9/32 and the other two have 6/32. Tires have no damage, plugs nor patches. Wheels are straight and spin true without any curb damage. Located in SW Florida. Trying to get a feel for value or an offer as I am debating another set of wheels and trying offset the cost with this possible sale. Anyone interested at $750?

With all due respect, $750 is pretty tall for the wheels. In the Tampa area, they are generally 1/3rd that. I got these, with bolts and caps and tires for $300

I might ebay them. I sold a few sets that way. Those are nice. What size rims are they? Are they staggered? I am looking at a 18 x 8 with 44mm offset set from a w220 silver painted 5 spoke. No tires at $550 local. Tires are a big cost as the car calls for a 100 load rating for the 255/45/18.

They are non staggered 17's off a W220 S600. I do have 4 of these, 18 X 8 et 44. 3 are perfect, one has some scrapes. I'll get the scraped one out of storage and take a pic if you're interested. PM me

Those are the same design I am debating about now. I would be interested and do you have any pics on the car with them? Why didn't you use these 18s instead of the 17s?

I just had a change of heart on the wheels when I found the S600 examples which have always been a favorite for me. I use my S500 for long distance runs and shoot more for comfort than anything else. My wife has MS, etc so a smooth non-intrusive ride is paramount for me. I never mounted the 18's. Tires are on two of them and they are a tic to tall, the other two have no tires mounted. I could put two on one side and take a picture, as long as it's understood the tires are a bit to "tall". Let me know

235/55/18 Michelin MXV4's, 99V. Tread is decent, build date 35th week of 07. I have 4 tires, just mounted two before the S600 wheels showed up.
