Where to send your factory wheels and tires.

Yeah, I know that a few of y'all will be swapping out the factory wheels and tires to make your Camaro look how you want it to look. Now where do you send them? TO ME!!!
I have a LS on order, 25 of 26 so I don't know when I will get it but I sure don't want those butt ugly LS rims.
So, what do you think the 20" rims will go for?

I'd buy your LS rims when they come in - I won't guarantee I will because I don't know what money will look like then but I'm going to send some off to be widened to 8.5 inches and then I'm going to put them on my 1LT. So don't worry - SOMEBODY will want to buy your rims.

Things have changed for me, looks like I will have to use my 2LT/RS in the winter. If Xantos doesn't buy your rims....I would so I could use them on my 2LT/RS in the winter. I'm in IL, so just North of you.

I know you want the 20 inch rims, I'm keeping mine.. so if someone wants to sell you their 20 inch and don't want your LS rims (with tires preferably), let me know.

Well, talked to my dealer about the wheels. I got it IN WRITING that I keep my 20" rims and tires and the 21" rims and tires are dealer installed. The SM called to confirm and GM said that it's up to the dealer to let the buyer have them or dealer keep them. I was sitting right there.

I live in Alabama, so I don't need and extra set for winter time. I will be selling them. I'd prefer to help a guy out who is on Camaro5. I'm not looking to make a big profit so whatever is a fair price for the average 21" rim, I will let them go for that. I'm thinking $3000.00 and remember it's the rims AND tires. Im thinking they will go for more on e-Bay. What do you guys think?

Are you saying $3k for the 21's or the 20's?

For the 21's it might be a good deal but you'd be stupid to pay $4600 for them only to sell them for $3k.

For the 20's, I'd say they are over priced @ $3k. The tires are worth about $1500. That leaves about $1500 for four 20" wheels? Sure, they're stock 20's but you can get some nice 20's for $400 a piece and be a bit different. You can also find some nice ones for $300 or less each.

OK, I didn't know what they would go for.
But ya, the 20s. So I can see that. Then I'd let the whole set go at maybe 2300.00 to 2500.00. Or for someone on here, 2000.00 and willing to deal. But like I said it's not to profit but to justify as much as I can, paying 4600.00 for the upgrade.
As you can tell, I don't know much about wheels.
