M Parallel replicas

I have a set of 18" staggered replicas that are still in their boxes. I really want a set of mesh rims instead so I am looking to trade or just unload these. I was going to buy tires next month for them, but I've changed my mind. Let me know if you have rims to trade or if you want these. I'm in Chicago and can send pictures if necessary. They have the 74.1mm bore but I have a good set of rings to go with them.

They are silver. 18x8 front and 18x9.5 rear. I saw a used pair sell for $600 in good condition without the hub rings. So I guess that seems like a fair price. Shipping out to NM will be costly though. Send me a PM with an offer and we can try to work something out.

Can you post a picture of what you have as well as for what you'd like to trade?

Thanks!

Sorry ARmiller. I did not notice you said they were staggered. I want the same size all the way around for rotating purposes. After having a supercharged 540i with 8.5's front and 9.5's rears, I would go through 2 sets of rears to 1 set of fronts. It would piss me off not being able to rotate.

Thank you for the fast response.

Not a problem. I am a little hesitant about the staggered setup myself. I think I will go with it though, when I find what I am looking for. GVC, I will post pics later today. They are silver M Parallel replicas still in the box with a set of hub-centric rings so they can fit an e38 or e39. The offset is +13 front/+25 rear with the 2-3" lip.

Here are some pics of the wheels. They are really nice, and they are still wrapped up in their boxes. I haven't even opened 2 of them.

I didn't get the center caps but I already added the M tags. I am sending these from my phone so if the quality isn't good, I can reattach from my computer.

I wanna say they are made by voxx. I got them from discount tire but I don't think they are available anymore. I couldn't find them on the website.

I just found them on discount tire and they are 588 before tax, shipping, and a set of hub centric rings. Here are the rings.

I'm negotiable on price so feel free to make an offer or offer up a trade. I'm set on 18-19" hyper silver or hyper black (not glossy black) mesh wheels or something similar, so if you want to trade wheels they must meet that criteria. Other offers will be considered as well.

ArMiller, I'm trying to sell a set of black 20" that came with my car when I bought them. Here's the link for the listing on a local classified site.
