Half of what you paid plus shipping. Use UPS if possible, then DHL. Packaging is not required. I always offer a guarantee. Within 3 days of receipt, provided that they have not been mounted, if they are not satisfied for any reason, they can return them for a full refund of purchase price and original shipping. The buyer pays the return shipping. I always have my used stuff inspected locally and I provide photos, including detailed photos of any problem areas. I also provide accurate descriptions. With my guarantee and approach, I have always sold my stuff at a fair price and no one has returned anything to me. They were treated fairly and there were no surprises. if you offer a guarantee the sales response is much better.

Thanks for the advice! I did just add your note about the guarantee to the listing on Bimmerfest, wheels and tires classified section.

I do. It's not been a problem. We lived many years without runflats (granted we had a spare tire). I just stick a can of fix a flat in the trunk, don't get the tire pressure sensors on and let the dash light stay on all winter. Granted this is on my 328i sedan but it's the same idea. I run the Dunlops non runflats in the winter and they do great. That light on the dash is a bit annyoing but I can live with that. I can check my own tire pressures.

Can't wait to get the '12 535i sedan MT when I say goodbye to my '09 328i sedan MT.

Now I need to find out if the TPMS sensors will work on my F10....or I will have to buy new sensors.

I posted a question last night in the E60 forum, but haven't gotten any concrete answers. (I am not trying to SPAM; if I could figure out how to delete that post I would...)
I have just installed the BMW OEM Style 184 18" wheel/tire package (with Michelin PilotAlpins--245/45R18's front and rear) and they look great.

For anybody interested, this package was formerly used on a 2008 BMW M5. This package fits perfectly with my F10 (535i with sport package.) The TPMS works perfectly as well. (I have a June 2010 built 535i, so the TPM's are the same.) The TPM's were changed over in September 2010 builds, so if you have a F10 that was built post Sept 2010, you will have to change the TPM's.
