Fair price for used m3 wheels?

I have found a set of 4 OEM M3 18 inch wheels with 2 snows in good and 2 snows in poor condition. NO TPMS. He wants 450. Is this fair?

Seller says no curb rash or bent wheels. I don't know what style they are (number wise) but they are identical 18 inch versions of my 19inch wheels. Wanted the 18sfor snows

It's not a replica. They are the actual stock m3 18 inch wheels

If they're actually OEM then that is a great deal. There are no OEM wheels that are identical to either OEM 19s. See below:

OEM 18 Style 219 (gunmetal finish sold through 2010 model year):



OEM 19 Style 220



OEM Style 359

Sounds like a great deal to me for good condition OEM wheels. I paid more for a used set.

That's a great deal! My friend at work just picked up a set of 219's for $800 with no tires, only TPMS.

Ok they look exactly like the OEM style 220 19s but are 18s. Is that possible?!?

Craigslist. I was going to pick them up today

It's Craigslist - the seller may not know the difference in 18 and 19. Your picture isn't showing, but can you see the size of the tire mounted?

It's either a 19" or a rep. I'm gonna guess.

I am 95% sure OEM 19 doesn't have the holes in channel between each bolt hole like the one you have linked in ad does.

As others have said above, not widely known to be OEM wheels in 18" but styled like 19s. That whole lip shape is different than the 19's I think but who knows. Someone may happen along with info on this possible dodo bird of wheels.

No.

Ask to see a picture of the backside of the hub.

Thanks. Ill ask for a photo. What should I look for on the back side of the hub to ensure they are authentic? If they are replicas is it no longer a good deal?

IMO $450 for replicas is a good deal, $450 for OEM is thievery

Thanks. The only thing that Bums me out is that there is no TPMS included and that's like 200 onto the price.

Check the Classifieds sections, someone maybe selling a set for less. You're already getting a great deal on a set of wheels, $650 for that set would still be good.

If they are 18" and they look like that, then they are reps and I wouldn't buy them for any price. Not worth the hassle IMO. Go for it if you want to spend your time dealing with easily bent, hard to balance, cheap reps.

Are replicas really that bad and cheap? Bear in mind this is only for winter wheels. That being said, I don't want to put shitty quality wheels on my car. Anyone have good experience with replicas?
