: Price of used coupe satin graphite wheels with center caps?

I have a chance to purchase a set of sating graphite wheels for a coupe in a pristine condition. I only need one front wheel (ahem..somebody...kissed a curb), but the owner does not want to separate. So now I'm considering purchasing the set and consider following options:

1) Replace all 4 wheels and sell the current wheels on my car with the caps. One has a slight curb damage and other three has the normal wear and tear on 18k mile car.
or
2) Replace just one curb kissed front wheel. And sell that kissed wheel with other 3 new purchased wheels with new cap.

I know the other option is to just repair that kissed front wheel. The local repair shops, however, are not giving me a warm fuzzy feeling in their ability to match the color with price of $100 - $150 for the repair.

What can I expect to get if I were to put the wheels for sale under two scenarios above???

Thanks in advance!

I'd like to hear what price you have in mind, but not sure how to go about doing it...

Okay, I had to look up how to PM. When I clicked on your screen name, the option to PM does not come up.
Am I still too new or am I missing something? Thanks.

Larry, where can I find these rims for $515?. I got a quote from my dealer at $650 and like your price better.

tkracing, If you go to google "detroit wheel and tire" they sell new rims for $515 ( listed as a core charge)

I just got 4 new OEM GM Graphite wheels on eBay for 1700 and that included shipping and 4 center caps. Granted, my car is a Sedan not a Coupe. It is a MAJOR Chevy dealer in NC although you would not know it by their eBay listings. I ordered yesterday and they shipped today. I noticed they listed Coupe wheels as well.

What is their ebay name or store name?

That's pretty silly to require specific quantities of posts before you have full functionality of the forum.
