I have spent all winter refinishing these wheels and last week (April 13th) just put brand new Wanelli 205/40/17 tires on them. All 4 wheels are balanced and ready to go. If you aren't familiar with style 5s, they are 17x8 et20 all around. They have a mirror finish and I just had the bolts zinc plated by JerseyIllest (Ray @ Illestwerks) . I'm extremely aggravated that in order to make the 17s look good my car needs to be low and I can't get in my driveway like that, and the town is harassing me about parking on the road. I'm looking for 1500$ OBO, I will accept trades, but only BMW bolt pattern 18" wheels with good tires. I also have the hub centric rings for e36/e46 that I will include with them. One wheel has a very minor bend, and one other has what appears to be a slight bend, but is actually just a mild indent from the P/O using a belt sander to get rid of curb rash. Text (PM'ing always gives me issues) to 203-5I0-759O or email [email protected] (include a subject title).
Asking $1500 with tires OBO (will not part out).
Prefer to deal locally.

You just might have a buyer I've been wanting those sooooo long!!!!!!! You have a pic of the bend?
Here is a picture of the minor indent from the PO's sanding, it's hard to see, look at the bottom ImageUploadedByBimmerApp1368830280.883965.jpg

How do you fix the bends?
There are a million shops that can do it, but I honestly wouldn't. It is so small that it's nearly impossible to notice unless you already know of it, and it holds air perfectly as well.

I didn't at first and I wasn't satisfied with the shine. So I redid them, got rid of the grooves, and they came out a million times better. Sand diagonally one direction, then diagonally the other direction, that will get rid of the grooves the quickest

Sorry for the double post, phone issues. Anyway no I don't need any wheels. I'm on 17s and I'm saving cash towards an e9x 335. Going to be picking one up this spring :D
