Ah yes, the rare and desirable $7,500 Taiwanese replicas off of the equally rare and desirable Twin Turbo, GT3, Limited Edition Boxster.

"The set came off my 02 Porsche Boxster GT3 Twin Turbo, Limited Edition."
Translation: They came from my Boxster

"They are off-balance and fully mounted with 2 issues."
What does that mean?

"I paid over $7,500 for the complete set... The wheels are replicas."
Aren't factory rims cheaper than that... with Pirellis?

Maybe the listing should mention the type of tires, sizes, as well as condition of tires. Just a thought.

I think it means "I knocked the weights off, along with the paint, when I smacked that curb".

apparently someone played a game with my posting and on craiglis that is not a true statement. My add was deleted and lies were put on the add itself. I will repost the add again with its proper information.

I wish games like this wouldnt be played but some people have nothing better else to do but to try to ruined other people's desires.

I was on late last night (well, early this morning) and saw the original ad. When I revisited the thread during breakfast, the fake was in its place. I can vouch the original ad looked like the one that is there now.

Those are nice looking wheels. They shouldn't last long at that price.
