Arrow WRX wheels for sale - local only

Just like it says, I'm selling my set of WRX wheels. They have RE730 tires on them and about 50% tread life left. Make me a resonable offer, I just don't need them any more. The won't fit on my car after the brake upgrade so they gotta go.

Two of the wheels have minor curb damage and the other two have nothing wrong with them. I was thinking about $400, but if you don't feel that's fair, then make me an offer.

By curbed do you mean scuffed up on the edges, or do you mean driven over a curb at a high speed. I've seen undamaged wrx wheels + fresh RE92's go for $400. How about $200?

I would buy them at $200.

But since I know shiz about wheels I don't know if they would work on a '98 OBS.

By curbed I just mean that the lip of the wheel, where they attach the weights has been damaged. If it does bother you, any wheel repair shop can take it out for you.

Sorry Gimp but the going price for low mileage, perfect condition WRX wheels and RE92's is $400 to $500. I ended up geting $480 clear for mine.

I doubt you will get much more than half that for damaged wheels

That's why I said "make me an offer" I'm not an unreasonable guy and I wasn't sure what the going rate was. I did not at any time say "I want $XXX for them and that's final." $200 is fine with me, I just don't need them any more, this isn't about the money. And besides, these aren't crappy RE92 tires.

Well most likely I totally missed out, which usually happens to me, but if anyone else is selling their WRX or even the GC8 RS rims let me know, and if you still have yours let me know. I am willing to pay 200-400 for them. Thanks.

As soon as my OZ wheels show up from tirerack (mid Sept it looks like ) I'll be selling mine. They are in perfect condition, 1300 miles on thei 4. Figure another 500 miles by the time I get the upgrade.

$400, just like everybody else

I'll put up a post when again when I actually have the replacements on the car. I'm just excited (I put my H&R springs on today... DAMN do they look good )

Default Hey DarthChicken......

Did you get the H&Rs over at Alta? I was thinking of purchasing a set but he said that they would set me back $225. Adam also remarked that they are bit more difficult to install then your typical Hondas, which I have done plenty times before.

Did you replace the coils yourself?

Yes, I installed them myself - I got them at tirerack, they had them for $233 (plus $21.46) for shipping. Didn't know Alta had them... DURN IT!!

I did them myself, with a couple friends. It's SUPPOSED to take 3 hours tops, but we ran into some problems. Nothing serious, just didn't have the right tool at one point... so we HAD to go to sears and check out all the tools... so there was an hour.

(Do you have a passthrough rachet? Something you can put a 6mm allen wrench through while you tighten the top bolt on the spring retainer "hat"?)

And then there was lunch... oh yeah, and apparently guido was working drivers side assembly, so every bolt on the drivers side of the car was like double torq of what is was supposed to be. Thank god for ex football players and breaker bars

And we kinda... ah... munched the crossmember under the car (those are NOT crossmembers under then back about a foot inside, do NOT use them, they munch up nicely. I did both sides though, so everything is even, right? )

Get some help, follow the instructions found on this site, you'll be ok.

Yeah, thanks for the help. When I do get a set I will definitely look for some advice on this forum.

Hey, do you think you can post up some pics? I think if I were to get a set I would end up cutting a coil or so. 1.5" doesn't seem to be a whole lot.

Don't go cutting your springs man... its BAD news all the way around, you'll just end up with loose springs bouncing around in there, it will ride terrible, and bounce all over the place. Here, take a look:



(now, THAT'S a subcompact, lol)

That's what we use to do all the time. It was the only real way to get a truly slammed look. We use to cut 3 to 4 coils off aftermarkets! It wouldn't too bad, just "dip" on occasions

But I know, we're talking about true suspension here.....though again, it isn't like an all out SUS setup....

Hey, do you have before and after pics?

Default Don't go cutting coils

Well you can cut your coils, but don't lower the car much more than an inch and a half because you will start messing up the AWD system, and that will cost you a pretty penny.
