17" rims and tires

These were take-offs from when my Boxster S was purchased new (replaced with 18" Gemballas at the dealer) so both rims and tires are in perfect "as new" condition. Tires are Michelin Pilot SX. Center caps not included. You can view the style at http://www.wheelenhancement.com/inde...elDetail&id=46

$1,200

that's a great deal for someone who needs new tires and can use the old wheels for the track. i don't need them, but you should list your location.

For those brave enough there's a Location field under User CP -> Edit Profile. You don't need to get too specific unless you want to but a general geographical idea could be of interest to everybody as we've got visitors from all around the globe.

Thanks for the recommendation. I added my location - San Jose. That reminds me that I should mention that the wheels are for pick up only.

Also, I was cleaning them up last night for a prospective buyer who was coming by to look at them and noticed that one of the wheels has some small scuffs in the clear coat from being stored, so I'm lowering the price to $1,000. You have to look up close to even notice, and I think they can just be buffed or polished out, but I know how picky we Porsche owners can be.

The tires alone cost $800 new, so it's like getting the rims for $200.

Here is the link for tirerack: http://www.tirerack.com/tires/Sizes....=Pilot+SX+MXX3

I'm moving soon and don't want to have to take them with me, otherwise I would not have reduced my price so much. I know I could get a lot more on eBay, but I don't want to have to deal with shipping them, so somebody is going to get a great deal.

Here are some pics:
