    Used wheels have been selling from $500-$1000 depending on condition and shipping. NOS wheels have been selling from $300-$500 per wheel, NOS center caps just sold for $400 a set of 4 off ebay.

    Thx. Offered $1,150 for a good used set of OEM wheels/caps and the guy refused my offer.

    Where are you located? I have extra wheels in TX I will probably never use.

    If you don’t want to pay the guy’s price, keep an eye on your local Craigslist. A set will pop up eventually.

    That’s about as much as I’ll pay for a good set. I think that price was more than fair.

    I would just stay in contact with him, he may eventually take your offer. Was he asking $1500 or more for them? Like Goose17 said they pop up from time to time.

    He was asking $1,300. Offered $1,000 at first then asked to meet me in the middle at $1,150 and he declined.

    Declined at $1300 is foolish on his part, if he wants to really sell them. Sounds like the guy is just throwing the wheels out there in the event someone wants them bad enough to pay his price. F him I say, or the stock set I have in my shed are a gold mine I didn’t know about.

    WTF is wrong with people?Found a killer deal on a local classified add for like new OEMs. I immediately responded and said I’d take them and he says he’s keeping them and has another used set in worse shape for more FRICKING MONEY!! Nothing but game players

    You might want to post up a WTB here. Not much traffic on this site anymore, but its all 93 cobra.

    Because I have my original Ford mounted tires on my wheels that I’d put away. However, I’m realizing how hard it is to get a good set and will probably just use the orig wheels to mount new tires on.

    I know the repop offsets are slightly different, but I recall someone running a set on their 93 Cobra. For what it’s worth, I pulled my original wheels/tires off my 2000 Cobra R at 950 miles to preserve them and have been running LMR’s 00R replica wheels and NT05 tires. Don’t rule out buying a nice new set of knockoffs.

    If they made the factory sizes, I’d be all over them. I just don’t want to modify the car just to get a set of rims to fit. So why aren’t they making them in the factory size?
