If you didn't keep telling everyone what you think of your wheels you might have a chance of selling them. Jussayin...

Yep.

PQ this is how the dialog should go:

stupid buyer: "anything wrong with these wheels"

PQ: "eh nothing horrible, same as any other wheel I suppose"

stupid buyer: "I'll take 'em"

I'm thinking tracing the history on these wheels will be the easiest trace in the history of online sales...

True. But I went to post them on E-Bay and never listed them. I didn't know how to list them. I have to be honest. I've had three different shops now (Big10, Firestone, and Gulf Coast Custom Wheels) try and seal them. Two are ok but the other two lose air like crazy. One loses about 25 pounds of air per day. I put 50 pounds of air in it in the morning and by the evening time it's down to 20 to 25 pounds. They said I have chrome rot.

Just no way I can sell them without disclosing that.

The Savini workbench and stool thing is absolutely 100% not a joke.

But I gotta get some new wheels first.

You guys are funny.

I can tell you this.......... whoever ends up with them will know exactly what they are getting.

The vibration is pretty much nil. and the paint flaking is ugly but can be overlooked. My biggest problem is the air. They just won't seal.

Damn. That's true. I would feel just fine if I sold them to a wheel shop. I can go in and ask them if they can fix them (they always say yes) and then sell them to the shop. This way my conscience is clear.

Ya?

Sounds like a solid plan. It puts all responsibility on the shop if/when they sell them. Though a shop probably won't give you the best deal, but you will be rid of them

Sell them for whatever they offer. Be rid of them. You'll be glad you did. I know I was.
