How much for tyres + 18" BA rims

How much would you expect to pay for 4 x 18" BA XR rims and 4 x Dunlop Le Mans LM 702 rubber that has only done about 1000km.

I've been told that the guy wants $4500 for them... I reckon thats a bit step.... going to appear in the trading post soon.

Can BA 18" rims work on an EL XR6?

45,000km service coming up - and i'll be asking for a sizable list of fixes:
* Gearbox (3rd time)
* Steering click (5th time)
* Brake Shudder (2nd time, and has the applied "Fix")
* etc...

Pre AU and AU onwards have different offset so they will only with spacers which are illegal. I think $4500 is a bit steep too

Thanks for that... Yeah I don't think they are worth $4500... someone in the club sold their 18" rims for $1000 (without rubber) and I put Falken 245/18/40's on mine recently for under $1500.

Not worth it :/

$4500, tell him he's dreaming

l would think something around $2200 would be more reasonable, have seen them for around that price in the past.

$1000 for 18's is really cheap, paid slightly more than that for BA XR 17's

Re: How much for tyres + 18" BA rims

My mate bought himself a set of AMG quakes 19'x8.5' with Falken rubber fitted & balanced for $3200, so for $4500 you should be able to get 20's with rubber. The guy that told you that price obviously doesnt want to sell them.

Re: How much for tyres + 18" BA rims

XTS220 - what size? 19's? 18's? If 19's then thats a excellent price.

My mate wants to sell his AMG Quakes now. If anyone wants more details let me know.
