Default Need an opinion about Enkei NT03+M

When I bought my 2004 STI it had the Enkei NT03+m wheels on it, personally I think they're extremely ugly so I bought some rota g force's. I told one of my friends the other day that I was gonna use the Enkei's as winter wheels(I live in Minnesota) so I planned on just scuffing em up and spray painting them, or potentially using plasti dip, he claims these wheels are extremely expensive and highly sought after and I could get a good chunk of money for them. So, I guess my question is are they worth trying to sell? I don't wanna just spray bomb them if they're worth a lot of money and I'd be better off selling them. They are in good shape for what it's worth.

If the size is 18x9.5 +27 those are in HIGH demand in the s2k, rsx, Evo, and STi forums. I would NOT paint them, if you really wanted new paint get them powder coated and not cheap spray paint. Sell them to me if anything problem is I'm I'm CA

They aren't super expensive and are relatively easy to get, especially since you don't have spacers - the desirable sizes of the nto3's all require a spacer to clear the brembo's.

Sorry, but your friend is wrong .

Depends on one's definition of super expensive. They're certainly not cheap wheels.

How do you know he doesn't have spacers? We don't even know what size he's running.

Again, depends on your definition of "a lot of money." Without knowing exactly what size you've got it's hard to say what you'll get for them, but check the classifieds here, ebay, etc to get an idea.

They're 17's, but beyond that I don't know any other specs on them. No spacers but they obviously clear my brakes otherwise they wouldn't have been on the car when I bought it haha. My friend was figuring I coul get around a grand for them, but I have no idea so that's why I asked. If I can't get that much I'll just keep them for winter wheels.

There should be markings inside the rim that show size and offset.

You probably wouldn't get $1000 for them.
