FS: OEM Evolution VIII wheels

Price: $450

Item Condition: Used

Hey Crew,

This is more of a gauging interest kind of deal. I have a set of Mitsubishi Evolution VIII OEM Enkei wheels. I've been sitting on them for quite a few years. These wheels came off of my 2003 Evo VIII within three months of owning the car. I ordered my Evo from Japan and obtained one of the first fifty ever sent to US soil, so I am the sole owner of this set of wheels.

I recently threw them on my RX8 while I waited for my new wheels to arrive. They are 17 x 8 with a +35 offset. They fit perfectly on the RX8 and they look pretty decent. I don't know if there is much of a market here for them, but they are exceptionally light and would make a great track wheel or a dedicated winter wheel. I unfortunately don't have the weight of the wheel, but I can do a little research for those who would like to know.

They are in excellent condition, with one very small area of rash that is hardly noticeable unless I point it out. I can take more pics, but like I said, I was just gauging interest. I would be looking for $450 plus shipping for the wheels. The wheels are wrapped in the stock tires, which are Yoko Advans, size 235/45 17. They have quite some camber wear from tracking the tires, but I'd consider throwing them in for a little extra coin. I'm thinking $650 for the whole setup. Offers welcome. Let me know if there's interest.

2 things:
1. are all 4 tires good for at least 3 months of use?
2. would you be willing to sell the tires seperate?

you've sparked my interest and I asked my buddy to sell me his evo 8 rims and he is for dirt cheap, not saying your price isn't fair which it is. (I also like the weight reduction!)

I will snap some tire pics tomorrow, if that's cool. I'm a Firefighter and on my way to work for the next 24 hours, so I won't be able to jump back on here until monday. I would say 3 months of tire use is definately possible, but it obviously varies based upon your driving style. I'll take a good look at them today and let you know. If not, I can very easily strip the tires off for anyone who just wants the wheels. If these don't sell, I may just end up keeping them as my winter wheels.

Hey. Sorry I didn't get pics up yet. I looked the tires over and they have WAY more camber wear on the inner tread than I first thought. I'm not even considering selling these tires with the wheels anymore. I'm not comfortable giving a fellow member tires that may potentially be unsafe, so just the wheels will be up for sale. I'm sorry. The outer tread looks great, but when I got down and really examined the inner tread, it is just bad. Sorry again!

Sooo...what? I'm confused. I already said the tires were worn way more than I was comfortable with, so I wasn't going to include them in the sale or seperate them and sell just the tires. I can take pics of worn-out tires, if you want, but I'm not selling them, so...

Oh, and no TPMS.

Shipping will cost roughly $25 per wheel...so a hondo should cover it. I can possibly get it done for cheaper so consider that a worst case scenario price.
