Why would you buy wheels without the center caps? Then have to win another auction for the centers?? If I were to put out the cash for a set of wheels the damn centers better be there!! Seems kind of dumb to me?

What may seem dumb to you may also seem like the best idea of all time to someone else...

I only set it up like that because different people need different things. After monitoring eBay auctions for wheels, I've seen many people buy them without center caps (maybe they feel they can obtain them very cheaply or whatever the reason is) and I've also seen peoplen buy center caps only. Like I stated in my auction, someone interested in both can get a great deal from me on them. Afterall, I'm just trying to sell these for my friend. Believe it or not, if these don't sell everything will head to the crusher! The guy is sick of having the wheels.

What's the wheel offset? I might be interested in them if they fit without spacers.

Sorry but I don't know what it is. I have an idea of what it could be, but that's just a guess. This was all I could find on the wheels themselves: 8 J x 16 H2. I know that doesn't answer your question though does it? You can probably research the exact specifications for this set of wheels online. I'll try to do so and get back to you here.

The center caps are brand new and typically sell for between $100 and $150 each. You can call around and get the quotes for yourself. My reserve on eBay is a very low one compared to what these typically sell for. As for the wheels + tires, they too are very expensive but my reserve is also very reasonable. Only time will tell if any of my reserves will be met anyway.

Anyone seriously interested here can send me a PM and we can talk.

I can understand attempting to maximize your return, but why would anybody bid on wheels without the center caps? The rims are rare enought, much less not getting the complete deal.
Thanks, but no thanks.

If you don't like the way it is setup that's fine. The deal ain't for you then. I can't please everyone.

I set it up that way not to maximize return but in an attempt to follow what I observed from several eBay auctions for wheels. I've seen rarer wheels sold without center caps many times.
