Not sure what these are going for in the sad shape they are (though 3pc wheels seem to be $$$ generally...), holler

Edit: I and these parts are in Tucson, AZ.  Days later and 10s of dollars shorter (inflation, you know...)... didn't stop to realize that being a smartass and listing my location as a gulag in the USSR might be problematic to the endeavour here (English spelling of "endeavor" because it's a little smart-assy...).

I'm interested for my rabbit but those are welded barrels right?

They are.

Emailing a few shops to see what it takes to get them repaired.  One place says barrels are available, $250 a pop, then figure labor  to separate and rebuild.  In contact with a couple other places, one is gathering info from me, the other is a "JDM" wheel shop I've not heard back from yet.

I've had them at LEAST ten years, maybe a little longer, got 'em off a parts car.   Was stoked until I saw how beat up they were, but back then I also had dreams of grandeur to refinish and mount them on the E21.  

However, nothing I have on my cars is the equal in price or quality of what these will be when repopped - these should go on some max effort build worthy of some nifty 3 piecers.

Sent you a message

Saw, let me do a bit more research, I'll shoot something back to you.

Cheers.

 

A place called WheelFlip in SoCal can rebuild, about $500/wheel, halves can be changed in half inch increments, they can either re-weld the halves or you can go bolt together with M7 hardware.

(if these don't sell and I get flush with cash, I might make them 15x8's... save me from myself....)

Assuming Chandler didn't bite on these, I could be interested. 

Sending you a PM.

I just saw these and have to thank Chandler from saving myself from more wife torture from another set of rims.
