local guy offered me $250 for sport wheels/tires

I really want to get rid of these, he responded to my craigslist and gave me the same old BS "i'm hurtin on cash man can you do 200 or trade for my digital camera" i said "man 200 is pretty low...if you put that away and save another 100 I'll do it" then he said "well maybe i COULD do 250 if you want to get rid of them tonight.."

I am seriously thinking about this. Am I retarded? They don't have TPMS sensors, they have 2000mi on them. Should I just do it? I don't want to hassle with shipping them across the country even if I would make an extra $50-100 doing that...someone reassure me so I don't feel cheated when I fork these over :/

if i was closer i'd give you $300 for them right now. no joke.

shipping isn't usually THAT bad. put two together for a total of two packages, strap them sidewall to sidewall with high quality strapping tape then put a round piece of cardboard over the end. ~75lbs per package should be about $40 each to ship. $80 total.

300 firm.

when i put firm on my post i mean it. whatever i put as the price thats what i put.

tell him 250 and a bj

thatll scare him away. but then again if you really want to get ride of them then tell him 275.

Okay so 300 is like the norm for sports without TPMS? 250 wouldn't be terrible then, but maybe I should put some scratches on a rim before meeting him haha since he wants to do me dirty like that. Dude probably has 300 too.. I hate when people see a great deal and try to make it greater.

It's just I have no room for them in my little-ass dorm, so they've been sliding around my backseats for a month now and it's annoying the shit out of me lol I just want them gone but I've had 4 local people now tell me 200-250. It seems Jacksonville FL is full of poor cheapskates lol at least if I make some inconspicuous scratchmarks on a rim or two, it'll really be worth the $250 lol I think I'm going to do it, but I'm going to really push for 300, and then 275 if that fails..

you wouldnt want that done to you, dont put scratches on them. its not worth it.

ya know?

give it a day or two i suppose.

300 is fair..

275 is a deal

250 is your getting ripped off.

anything below that just tell them to phuck off.

damn..600? wow...tpms included I'm guessing? A set of TPMS runs what, almost $200?

If I don't get at least $275 I guess I'll ride around with my backseat rims for a while longer lol

Just got back from meeting this dude. Guess what he rolled up in?!?!?! A 2009 BLACK FIT!!!!!!! I was so pissed off I didn't have my camera on me. It seemed like a darker black than my NHBP side-by-side in the moonlight. Sold my wheels for $275 obviously he has the base model. It was my first time seeing a GE8 in reality. He said he got the first one in Jacksonville. Wonder if anyone in FL has seen one yet? He said his friend has a VBP 08 and she likes it very much. I told him about this forum, hopefully he remembers!!! So, him and her plus me and 2 other guys on this forum makes 5 Fitfreaks in Jax, one being new! The army is expanding! I still like the GD better of course it's more JDM-looking, simpler. Anyway thanks guys for the input, I'm content with $275, and so was he. Man I'm so stoked still from seeing a GE8 lol even if it was the base model and I'm more fond of bodykits and foglights

You can ask whatever you want for them but in the end they only worth as much as someone is willing to pay.
