most people just want the rears to go square, but considering the costs to refurbish the damaged pair, with No rubber, and you are paying cash local, so no hassle to deliver, paypal fees etc..I think closer to 600-700 would be a better deal

$1000 might be for a pristine set with no rubber, $600-850 for rashed or other wear marks on the exterior face.

I was offered a set of square FRONT wheels in supposedly great condition, with winter tires on them, for $900.

A pair of rears routinely goes for $600 though, as they are the most desirable. A fully squared rear-sized setup in great condition might run $1200.

I sold a set about 3 years ago wrapped in some cheap Khumo ecsta's with about 40-50% tread left for around $1300. There was some slight curb rash on a 2/4 wheels but otherwise they were in great shape. I sold it to a guy who was buying them for his 540i

I deal in style 65 wheels ALL THE TIME, the going rate for a set of no story rims will go for $1000. Tires add little value bc they add shipping cost and M5 owners are anal about what is put on the car. occasionally you'll see rims go for cheap, they're either reconditioned or seller is in a bind.

The prices being tossed around here are for a PAIR or pairs (front or rear). Compared to a SINGLE rear OEM wheel new from an online parts house that goes for $650+.. I say $1000 for a complete used set is not bad, but I agree with the above, if wheels show some rash, then bump it down some.
