Are they even worth trying ti sell?

Hello all. I have a set of four 16" style 29 wheels in great shape with tires that I am ready to get out of my garage. Are these wheels woth anything or should I take them to the scrap yard? Thoughts?

Definitely worth something to someone looking for some winter rims.

I can use them for my 528. If they are good I may consider a swap for a set of style 5.

Finding someone willing to pay for shipping gets tough I have several sets that fit my old e34 that I could give away. I listed them on Craig's list and never got an inquiry. I've been tempted to list them again just haven't.

Good luck to you though. I may one day be kicking myself and looking for these because I think the ride quality running on 18's isn't as much to my liking as when I put on the 15's in the winter. 16' might just be a happy fit.

I sold my old set with 70% tread tires for $200. E36/E30 guys with a hub conversion would be interested since the 16s look much better on a smaller car. I sold my set to a gentleman who put them on his '71 Bavaria.
