Hi

Anyone for ideas for selling my winter tyres and alloys?

Tried selling them on eBay but people don't seem to want to pay even half what I did for them new.

Can't sell them here cos I haven't posted enough but I guess this is one more post!

Graeme

Im afraid its a buyers market. and if they are no use to you anymore then you will have to sell them, because now is the time to sell. No 1 will but after the winter :(

Sorry I cant be of more help.

ebay is a strange one. With millions of people on there, things tend to make the "market value" i.e. what people are prepared to pay for them. But, you may be able to get more on here or other bmw forums.

Less than half sounds about right, unless they're unused?

How much tread is on them Graeme, maybe that's the issue? Winter tyres go in the bin at 5mm.

Hi

They are the 17 inch alloy and Bridgestone blizzak tyres official bmw combo.

Had them on my 123d for 2 months n 2k miles last year and the wheels are perfect.

Would almost be better selling the wheels on their own!

Graeme

You would make more splitting them up, imo.

Some people will just want the winter tyres, other people (after new alloys) could be put off by them.

Suppose it depends what you are looking for them? How much are you expecting to get?

He can't sell on here yet, that's the problem, as he doesn't have the post count.

He can say how much is was expecting for them though and he might get some PMs from people who are interested in helping him out??

Or link to an ebay / Gumtree listing?

Or just join in a few debates! I seem to manage 20 posts most days without trying. :shock: :oops:

Hi

They are back on eBay, Item #: 271113534896. All the details n pics are there if you want a look.


Genuine BMW Alloy Wheels and set of 4 Bridgestone run flat winter tyres

BMW package part number 2210807 RRP £1,540

17" BMW alloy wheels (V-spoke 141) 7Jx17
Bridgestone Blizzak run flat tyres (205/50R17 89H)

1 Year old, about 2,000 miles since new, spending 2 months on my 123d last winter

No damage to the tyres
No damage to the alloys - perfect condition.

I traded in my 123d 3dr, and am now selling wheels separately.

Will fit most 1 series vehicles, can use the following link for reference:-

http://bmwfans.info/parts/catalog/36116775621/

Cash on collection is probably best for payment as you can then inspect before you buy.
Posted with eBay Mobile



Would arrange courtier delivery if you are interested.

Graeme.
