Just got me M5, i'm new to the forum, had an e46 m3 before this.

and off with the rims already.


sale is for rear rims, no tires.

straight, no rash, pretty clean

i prefer cash and pickup, i'm in Los Angeles


i have a general ballpark on price but i want to know what you think they should go for

pics to come in a few hours

the front rims are being refinished, friend wants them but they may end up for sale later

Traditional chrome? Not OEM shadow chrome, correct?

Judging from your pics, I'd guess that these wheels have been refinished in a traditional chrome finish.
This posts has some good pics of stock Shadow Chrome wheels:

All e39 M5s came from the factory with Shadow Chrome finish on the wheels.

I might still be interested in your wheels, but if they are traditional chrome, I'd have to get them refinished, which is a $350-$500 bill, so that they match my other two stock wheels. That might not work for either of us, but on the other hand, honestly you are going to have a tough time selling two traditional chrome wheels. Your only market is finding someone who already has chrome wheels or is looking to put together a set of four to send out and get re-finished.

They look to be traditional chrome. Maybe seller can post a better picture to clarify.

Confirmed they are traditional chrome.

i will be sending them to be refinished, and make all 4 rims available now.

I am in OC, and would love to see your wheels after they are finished in shadow chrome. I have been debating sending mine to prince because of the cost of shipping.
