For Sale: Set of 17 Inch S Wheels with New Tires - $500.00

Does your car need a new set of sticky HiPo street tires, and you dread the idea of hassling with all that new tire mounting and balancing stuff? If you own a base 986, are you interested to upgrade your wheels to the S style?

For Sale is a full set of four 17 inch OEM S wheels from my personal car, fitted with a set of almost new (less than 1000 daily driver street-only miles) highly rated Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 tires.

Front: 7 width x 55 mm offset wheels, with 205/50 x 17 tires
Rear: 8.5 width x 50 mm offset wheels, with 255/40 x 17 tires

These wheels and tires are (obviously) already mounted and balanced and are all ready to simply bolt on to your car. The balance is very smooth no weird wobbles or vibrations at speeds well above the legal speed limit ( ahem). I even fitted fancy low profile chrome valve stems which look really nice. No center caps included.

The condition of all four of the wheels and tires is about a 9 out of 10. No rim gashes or marks whatsoever these are about as mint of a set as you are ever likely to find. The only reason why I am selling them is that I stumbled across a deal that I could not refuse for some 18 inch 987 rims, as shown post 4491 in this thread: http://986forum.com/forums/boxster-general-discussions/37273-what-did-you-do-your-boxster-today-225.html

Discussion about these Firestone tires can be found here: http://986forum.com/forums/performance-technical-chat/62941-firestone-firehawk-indy-500-a.html I liked these 17 inchers so well that I bought an 18 inch set of them to fit to my new 987 wheels.

$500.00 USD for the full set as shown in the pics, which is basically the cost of just the tires alone.

I am located in a suburb of Columbus, Ohio, and would certainly prefer a local pick-up if you are reasonably close to me. I am willing to consider shipping on your dime, but note that this would be a bit of a hassle for the both of us. These wheels / tires are pretty heavy (especially the wider rears), which would make the packing and transport costs relatively high for you.

Thanks - DM

I'm interested in the rears (and ideally without tires) if you wind up separating the set

Sure, I'd do that for the typical $0.50 / mile reimbursement. MapQuest shows at 75 miles to Zanesville from 43065.

If still of interest (and these are nice wheels and tires - No disappointments!) send me a P.M.

Thanks - DM

Hi Dave. I have a 2002 Boxster. I need winter or all-season tires+rims. These are summer tires, correct?
