WANTED: used 500E rims

I'm looking for a good set of used OEM 500E 16x8s...

The reason being is that I bought a set from a place in MI that reconditions rims, and well I'm pretty much 100% sure they are NOT true. The car shakes above 55mph and even after new tires it *still* shakes above 55. I replaced the lower control arms and lower ball joints last weekend and now the shaking is more noticable now that there is no play in the susp. I'm not as concerned with condition as long as they are true and not bent!

I'm hoping for a SoCal/greater LA area sale, as I can just come and get them.

Are you looking for chrome plated or stock painted? Does it matter to you?

Greetings-

I have a set located in San Jose, CA.

100% true, painted, off an '94 E500- rims have less than 50K miles on them. Very Minor curb rash on 3 wheels but 100% true. NO pics.

rims are shod with 225/55/16 WR P6000 Pirelli (made in Europe), no plugs or patches, 45% tread left.

If you are interested please PM me: fulgence.dulay@uboc.com. I would like to receive $450/ set (with or without tires) + shipping (no centercaps, no lugs).

Thanks
-fad
'94 E500 (45.9k)
'92 300E 2.6 (260k)
etc.

Glen,

I thought they would be, lol. I took a look your link to your E500 and I remember seeing your car b4 when it had the chromes. Your car was on ebay back in the day right? I have like 30pics of your car on my HD from the selling dealer in TX. How random is that?

I just bought 2 reconditioned rims?

Do I need to worry with 100% reconditioned rims? Anyone else have a bad experience?
