Default BBS/ASA Wheels w' Kumho tires F/S in ATL take 2

This is a repost from a couple months ago. The person who was going to buy them fell through, by the time things we finally "off" with him others who were interested had moved on. One more time here goes:

Selling a set of 17x7.5 et48 of the BBS/ASA LW5 model wheels with 225/45/17 Kumho Ecsta MX tires that have literally been on the car for less than 10 miles. They don't fit my 2002 wrx wagon for whatever reason so I'm unloading the wheel tire setup. The package has been on the car, around a 2 mile test drive loop, and back into climate controlled storage since I got them. Since they have "been on the ground" I can't return them to Tirerack (got em from Luke) but they are literally "as new". New from Tirerack the set (no shipping or whatnot) is $1216, I'll part with them for HALF of that so call it $600 plus shipping. I've got actual pics upon request, just drop me a pm or email and I'll email some as soon as I can. Any other questions feel free to call me 678-886-9388.

Let's try those links again....

As for why they don't fit....I've been round and round with the local subaru dealers. My rear track width in my wagon is about an inch wider than any other wagons. As such (ride height only altering where in the arc the suspension rests) the rear will rub the black strips on the edge of the fenders (but not the actual metal fenders) even with stock 205/55/16 tires on stock wheels under "track" conditions. I've tried 215/45/17's and they still will not clear the metal fenders. The local subaru dealers and their customer service dialup have run me in constant circles. I've given up trying to get anything resolved.

I spent for the wheels and tires but I can't return them to Tirerack since they have been on the ground. Conversely, I can't use them since they don't even come close to clearing in the rear. If I can get some of my cash out of it and let someone else get use out of the wheel/tire combo seems to be the best option.

Hope this helps,
Lee

P.S. I can email pics of the actual wheels tires. You can still see the rubber "bumps" on the side of the tires, the paint on the tread, etc. Email me if you need the pics.

I'm interested and may be able to pick them up in Atlanta. I'm in Charlotte but can make the drive to see friends. Might want to test fit them to the car when I pick them up to make sure I don't have the same problem you did. Let me know. Also would be interested in shipping to 28079 (Indian Trail, NC). Thanks.

Hey Scott,
I don't know what shipping would be. I know that when Tirerack ships them from their midwest warehouse it is about $75 for the set of 4 but that was from South Bend Indiana to Atlanta Georgia.

To the others who have pm'd me, I'm sending some digital pics out as soon as I'm done typing this message.

Lee,

Sounds o.k. to me. I think I'll take them. Let me know how we need to proceed. I'm ready when you are.

this is a mighty tempting deal, good thing I'm leaving for Asia for 2.5 weeks or I'd have to try them and buy them.

Would these fit a sedan?

so sexy, they look like Z06 wheels

They should, but they're going on my wagon instead.
