I need your help (wheels)

Postby Shellysowner » 12 May 2007, 20:18

Someone please buy these and put them on your Chevette (centres will need machining out to 56.6 and he's calculated the offset wrong, they should be et13 which is perfect). I don't need any more wheels, I have 4 sets already.

Same as used on the Ferrari Dino:

I've bid £40 btw and it's impossible to set a reserve less than £50 on eBay.

But Ralph, those are the wheels you have been after for ages!

I could even pick them up for you...

If you're able to pick them up Dave then why not buy them for your Chevette? Would be a nice incentive to get that resto done. I would love to buy them but I haven't got a car to put them on..... I'm sure I'll regret it one day, but ho hum :?

I would get on with it mate, but I can't find anywhere to do it! A huge chunk of rear arch came away in my hands this morning, so I really do need to do something. I've bought repair panels, so that's a start. Thinking of getting a proper bodywork person to do it, I know it'll cost £££s but I can't see any other way of it getting done.

It's either that or scrap the lot :cry:

There are other Ebays you know :wink: and the price of wheels on them makes £90 look positively expensive :shock: :D

Look further afield and you will find a greater variety at a much lower price..... supply and demand :wink:

Is that true that there's an 'alternative' to eBay? Someone at work was saying this only the other week - however rather inconveniently they didn't know the website!

You can all use google though can't you? :roll:

2nd largest auction site in the UK: http://www.ebid.net

3rd largest: http://www.cqout.com

The trouble with ebay.de Dom is 1/ I don't speak German, 2/ Many sellers don't pake Paypal and 3/ Many won't post to the UK or in fact won't post at all.

Any wheels that are super rare still go for humungous prices anyway (example), but it seems Germans aren't hugely keen on the old BMW alpina or BBS 13s.

Ralph, if you're really keen on the Alpina rims, I know of a E24 633CS that is currently being sold for £100 with those wheels fitted. Just think, the wheels you are after and a big slice of early 80s sharknose class attached. And rust, and probably impending gearbox failure, but still with those wheels...

To be honest, I much prefer the 6x14 bottletop BMW wheels I've got.
Love a set of the BBS multispoke rims though, in 15x7 - with correct offset.
I've also got a set of 15x6.5 Hartge rims but they're set too far out - barely clear the arches with 205/50s.

Nah, brake clearance - 14s with 195/60s is a good compromise - I hate the big wheel/rubberband look. May need 15s with the next brake upgrade.
Hey, how did you know I was a weirdo :wink: ?

No, it was just one that was on ebay the other day. It's gone now, but it really didn't look all it was cracked up to be. Corrosion to both front wing tips, and by the time it's got that far on an E24 the panels underneath usually look like a lace tablecloth. The interior was in fine condition and the wheels looked not bad, but the body was a little frilly round the edges.
