I've had these sitting in my garage for awhile so it's time for them to go.

360 Forged Spec 5ive
20x9.5 and 20x11
Brushed centers that are clear coated. Chrome lips.

I bought them about 3 years ago from a forum member here and have put at most 5k miles on them. When I bought them the front two wheels both had a slight pot hole bend in them so I had Wheel Specialist's INC in Tempe AZ straighten them out.

The chrome lips are not in the best of condition. The two fronts have some pitting of the Chrome near the spokes. The rear wheels both have pitting and some chrome flaking. Obviously these are priced accordingly. I have called around and got some pricing on rebuilding these and this is what I found: A total rebuild including chroming and re-finishing the centers was anywhere between $1200 and $1500. Just re-chroming the lips was a little cheaper than that. I called 360 Forged and priced out new hoops. Both chrome and polished hoops are $300 a piece. The center's have some small areas where the clear is chipping, but it's not really noticeable. Also, one of the rears needs a new valve stem - i just noticed this - I think the shop that took my tires off broke the nut. I included the stem in the box though.

I'm not sure of the offset but the rear fitment of these are flush as can be. I ran 285's with absolutely no rubbing. I ran 295 Michelin PSS's with only a slight rub on major bumps. The front's need a 15mm spacer to be perfectly flush.

These are boxed up and ready to go. I will ship at the buyers expense. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I'm currently located in NW Philadelphia.

Thanks,
Chris

Lot's of interest so far, thanks guys! Here are some answers to some common questions I've been receiving.

Offsets: I'm not sure. I've called 360 Forged and they won't release them to me without the purchase order, which i don't have. These were made for the e60 M5 but I still used a 15mm spacer on the front wheels for an ultra flush fit. I'll upload a picture of my car with no spacers.

Tires: I ran 285 Nitto Invo's and 295 Michelin PSS's on the rears. The 295 PSS's would rub ever so slightly on large bumps.

Condition: There are no cracks and never where any. These never leaked air.

Keep the offers coming! Lots of offers so far but no $ in my account!

Guys, i still have the wheels, they are sitting in boxes waiting to be shipped out!

Yea, it's unfortunate that the chrome lips are crap. 360 forged was aware of the issue but didn't want to pay to fix it. I got several quotes to re-chrome the lips and completely rebuild the wheels. Most quotes were between $1000 and $1600 to do total re-finishing of the barrels and faces. Would still make a great deal especially for a wheel with a MSRP north of $8k. I've already moved on to other wheels and don't have time to deal with re-finishing them.

Let me know if anyone has any questions.

Thanks,
Chris
