Might Have found a good set of wheel i think
Ok so i browse craigslist for wheels... not smart but then again i have nothing better to do at work other than watch movies... so i only got one pic but the gyst so far however i have asked for pics of each wheel and defects in finish. What i know so far...
- 17x7" Team Dynamic Monza? wheels
- curb rash evident on the one wheel i have a pic of
- one wheel has a bend that supposedly doesn't effect balancing or can be corrected once balanced.
- It has no center caps (not sure if they can be bought)
- i dont know the offset yet
I am not a fan of white so I would have them refinished if i get them
the guy doesn't know much about the wheels as his brother gave them to him.. sketchy about this.. he is asking $300 but then said he could do $200... still not comfortable with that but i have yet to see them in person.
What I am asking from the peanut gallery is, are these wheels Team Dynamic? are they good?
Here is the pic:
now, i haven't decided to get them in case something better presents itself.
what is everyone's thought?
now i am second guessing on these..
Last question, I'll be running with ZP coils and wondering what is the lowest i can ride with 17s and not rub? fenders are partially rolled currently.
Yes, those are Team Dynamic (Rimstock) Monza R's. TD is a Euro company, did a lot of business with BTCC at one time. That curb rash looks a little harsh, and center caps are going to be next to impossible to find. If you're looking for bling rims, keep looking. Personally, I think that's a great deal on a classic set of rims, depending on the condition of the other 3 wheels. Lots of folks don't like white, but I think it works on red or blue cars.
ah ok, i was afraid of not being able to find the caps.
i think i may go for them. but this does depend on the others condition. would you say $200 is worth it or should i see for lower. I mean i dont wanna low ball the guy.
i'm not looking for shiny, hence why i want a darker color but i like this style now. (5 years ago i hated it lol)
and i have never been a fan of white, just to dirty if that makes sense. maybe other will chime in.. its an hour drive to get them but he is willing to meet about half way so i can check them out.. wish there was someone who was local who could ride with and help me decide on the quality.
These originally came in white, black, gold and silver. Obviously, you can paint them any color you want, but yeah white does show a lot of brake dust (my winter rims are white). Again, depending on the overall condition of the other 3, I think $200 is more than fair, so I wouldn't lowball too much. You can probably piece together a full set of caps from ebay, but it may take a while, and probably cost just as much as the rims.
Yup, here is the current style for the same wheel
Yeah That Just Happened!
If your are looking for opinions
Those wheels are terrible. In that condition if you are paying more than $200 I'd walk away. Even if the were pristine Brand New in Box I'd still put them on. But to each his own.
If you are not looking for opinions
READ THIS: They better be cheap considering the condition of the curb rash and the bent wheel. Then consider the price to have the wheel straightened along with stripping and refinishing.

Why do u say they are crap?
Yea I am.considering the cost of finishing them. Havent decided yet either.. I am still hopeful something better is out there I can afford at exactly this moment

Buy em. They are 10 x's better then your current wheels.

Anything is better then them in my eyes however the extra invest in having the made pristine again is the deciding factor of where I can get it done for not a rip off price, etc
Yea I wouldn't do it pretty nasty rash on them
most people snap a pic of the best rim. if thats the case, the rest must be ugly

lol, well the guy never sent me images of the rest of the rims sooooo i have not pushed the matter any further.. i am now thinking of going to a 16" rim with lower profile tires just to be able to drop the car some more, but i don't know if i want to yet.. i'd have to see it before i try it, or just have a set of rims and try it and see if i like it
