: Trade My 18" Wheels/tires for 17" units

01-13-2008, 07:14 PM
I have a set of 4 - 18" BMW Light-alloy wheels Star Spoke (style205) with Pirelli Scorpion STR tires that I would like to trade for a set of the 17" stock wheels and tires.

The wheels are in like-new condition.

The tires have about 9,000 miles on them and have performed very well in the snow this winter. They have lots of life left on them.

I may be willing to do a straight trade or might like some cash depending on the tires you have and condition of the wheels. It's all negotiable

These are located in Colorado Springs.

If you might be interested, please post here or email me, frereseamus at the usual yahoo mail address (dot com).

Ooooo that's so tempting, but I've got to stick with the 17"s with snow tires thru the winter. (I do plan on moving up once spring rolls around)

I'm also very tempted. I actually like the 205 style more than the stock 17" 1XX style. My tires only have 1200 miles. Only problem is that I'm in Toronto, Ontario.

May I ask why you want to down size?

I would like the smaller size wheels for two reasons: 1. The roads in Colorado aren't always that smooth, and I think the ride might soften up just a tad with the smaller wheels, and; 2. I will likely be actually using the X3 off road, and the low profile tires (50s) make me a bit nervous.

Anyone? It's a great deal!

Will let you know after the 30'th if they (really) fix or trade up mine.

Martlett66, I am willing to trade. I have a brand new set of 17" with tires. They have 400 miles. But, I am here is WA. What do you want to do with this?

Sticky, I sent you a PM. I still have the wheels if anyone is interested.
