Question 98 2.5 gold wheels worth anything?

This Kid at my school wants to trade me his 02 or 03 wrx wheels for my curbed up 2.5 wheels. I don't understand why he wants do do this, are they worth anything?
Thanx for the help.

Yeah. They usually go for about $350-450 depending on condition. They're starting to get rare, plus they clear Subaru 4-pots which is an added bonus. Not to mention they're a lot better looking than stock 02-03 WRX wheels.

Don't trade straight up. Get cash plus trade if you are going to do it.

They're worthless... Trade them to me instead. I have a set of pristine 2004 WRX wheels i can trade.

You live that close to Wellsboro and STPR yet you don't know the value of your GC STi wheels? For shame!!!




As was said, they're 16x7 like the '99-'01 RS wheels, vs. the 16x6.5" '02+ versions, so they clear a couple BBKs, like the Subaru ones (non Brembo). Definitely worth more than the newer ones, which for an '02-'04 set couldn't justifiably sell for more than $250/set in my opinion.

Well, as long as the rim is straight and true and you can properly mount a tire and weights, i'd make an offer on them if i lived closer to you. For a reference point, i think i paid $75 shipped for a single RS 6-spoke wheel that had almost 100% curbage. (i wanted to have a spare)

Actually, the price will probably be going up since the 06 comes with the 4-pots, and 17" wheels.

There will be more people wanting a 16" winter wheel.

I agree with fliz, demand for old RS wheels will shoot up. and the demand for old wrx wheels will dwindle to the floor.

oh... well i was thinking the supply of 4-pot-safe wheels will be going up if ppl with 06's get new wheels & sell the take-offs... besides the fact that they are 17", so that the old RS wheels would not be as hot. i guess we'll see soon

i believe the old RS item will be a hot item due to the fact they are 16s. you are probably not familiar with snow tires but the price jump b/w the two sizes are quite significant.
