Selling wheels?

I have a set of inexpensive aftermarket wheels (Sport Edition, the Tire Rack house brand) that I bought for the 987. Used them once. Theyíve been sitting in storage ever since.

Iíve got them listed on FB marketplace and PCA Mart. Got a nibble but it involves shipping and I canít imagine itís worth doing that. Any other ideas? Theyíre not worth much because there really arenít a lot of buyers for them, but I also donít care about the cash, Iíd just like to get rid of them and would rather not trash what are basically brand new wheels.

I also haveÖseveral other wheels* that I suspect itís not even worth trying to sell. Those probably will go to the dump now that I have a truck to haul them in.


*A set of R56 mini wheels, two steel BMW temp spare wheels, an Audi A4 wheel, a Tesla Model 3 20Ē wheel that may be bent, and a Tesla 21Ē wheel that also may be bent.

Any other Porsche forums?

I bought some wheels for the Model S and had them swapped out when I needed new tires about half-way through ownership. Had them swapped back to stock a couple months before I sold it. Original intent was to put winters on the original wheels, but I never did that. When we moved out of Ohio, I ended up selling the other set of wheels to my next door neighbor (who also had an S)... I bought them for ~800 plus ~$100 shipping, and sold them for $400. Used them for a few years, so it was worth it...

Do the wheels have tires or are they just wheels ?

I am not sure if you decided against selling the wheels but I was going to tell you if you're selling the wheels by itself it can be a bit of a pain in the a** to ship because you need boxes.

If you are selling wheels with tires it is pretty easy to ship, I've done it many times, here is a link that shows you how to package them.

Just use Strong tape.

Shipping can be expensive but I found Fed ex Ground was less then UPS Ground in most cases.

That said, for these sorts of things, I just leave them up on FB Marketplace if there isn't an immediate pressing need to get them out of the house. Sometimes it take a while, but they eventually sell.
