How much are my wheels worth??

I'm buying cragar soft 8s soon (when I have money) and I'm selling my wheels to my friend. I told him $120 for these wheels but I think that's too low. How much do you guys think I should sell these for??

That is a little low I think, they should be worth at least $200 for just the wheels but if you told him $120 I would let him have them for that so you are a man of your word. Just my 2 cents.

With a bit of thought I would have researched the price you are going to pay for the soft 8's (I paid $56 a wheel). Then I would have sold your old wheels to your friend for around that (minus a bit for age, scuff marks etc.) amount. Around $200 would have been fair. But, if you really made an agreement for $120 you might stick with that to keep a friend. Need to decide what is more important, the extra $80 or so or keeping a good friend. Just my thought as well.

That is true. I think I'm gonna ask 150 ad see what he says. My wheels are a lil scratched and don't look too good so I'm dropping the price down a bit. And where did you get ur soft 8s at?

And I'm also figuring in how much he is gonna bring me down. He's like my best friend but he's a finegeler (idk how to spell it). Lol

Why don't you just paint those and save your money? They kind of look like Soft 8s anyway and there are about 500 writeups on here where people used spray on bedliner for cheap and the wheels turned out awesome. If it was me that's what I would do and don't forget you're going to have to pay someone to R&R the tires so that's another $50+ out the window unless you have a buddy with a shop. Just a thought.

Oh, and I bought Soft 8s for mine from summitracing.com as they had the lowest price with shipping I could find. (my originals were rusty pieces of crap or I would have painted them)

The reason I don't paint mine is because they are scratched and have a lot of dirt and grime that I can't get off I'm afraid that the paint won't stick. And I just want a fresh start with new wheels. Idk why. I'm dumb like that.

And that's where I'm gonna buy my soft 8s. I agree with the lowest price. And he said that 130 is all hell do but I'll still try

Sometimes you're the windshield, sometimes you're the bug. $120.00 sounds like the perfect amount since you already agreed to it. This time, you're the bug.....
