I actually really like the style of that wheel! you could very easily sell your stock wheels/tires on your local craigslist or even post them up on the for sale here!

Did you have alloys or the base steel wheel? Sell them cheap, even the steel wheels look okay blacked out. Might have to get rid of those on craigslist though.

Depends on the condition of the tires. If they are close to being worn out then I'd say start with a $600 price tag. If there is a considerable amount of tread left (60%+ then start at $1100.

Edit: Just realized that tires are probably not included.... In that case $400 bucks.

They should work, but be sure to include in your ad that the TPMS is not included.

Not all Jeeps come with those 18” alloys, Moabs, I think. They’ll sell quick on your local CL to someone who has the sport 16” steelies. Or even an older Jeep. Probably put them for $300 if you got all 5.

I got rid of mine for $600. The guy who bought them had 2 spare tires stolen from his Jeep and was tired of getting replacements at the dealer for $600 a pop so he now has plenty of spares. Sold them on Craigslist

The ATZ have been great tires. I've put another 20k on them after I bought them from Stupidface and they still have plenty of tread.

I just let my stock rubicon wheels go for 250 on CL. Had them posted for a month and a half before I got a serious inquiry. As far as TPMS, they'll work just fine. Just swap them into the new wheels.

Sure did. Thanks again. Tires still have plenty of tread on them.

Oh yeah and I'm running the TPMS sensors and haven't had any issues yet with them getting damaged. The rims protect them pretty good. I will more than likely take them out when they get new meat.

could use the oem wheels as costers or maybe stack them up and you can have an end table or a night stand..

No trick. Mine were attached with double sided tape. I took them off and kept them just in case but never put them back on. They are attached pretty well so it takes a bit to take them off. The picture above looks like it may have a screw in the red accents but mine didn't.
