Input on Wheel decision

I recently orderd a Grabber Blue V6 prem and will have the dealer add the Shelby spoiler and matte black racing stripes. I really think the 13 GT Prem Stock Wheels (19X8.5 Bright Machine with black inserts) will set it off nicely. I found a set on Craigslist about 100 miles away for $800 with 3000 miles on them.

The Wheels that come with the V6 prem are 17's and similar but gray inserts and a slightly different design. I could LIVE with them if they were black inserts, but I think the 19's would be perfect. What could I reasonably expect to get for the stock wheels off the 14 V6 Prem?

I've had mine on Craig's list for several months for $400 with good tires and haven't gotten a single bite. I've even mentioned that they will fit other Fords. The problem is that nowadays almost everything comes with some sort of decent alloy wheel and the other owners do not want to pay to get what they already have. I'm thinking about just keeping mine for track days.

I have my 18 "pony package set at $600 OBO. 1 bite and I said I would take $450. Haven't heard back yet. Hey can pay $300 so I'm hoping he will bump to $450. Just got the message tonight.


Seems like outside of the brembo wheels its hard to get rid of stockers.

So I've done the math and buying the '13-'14 GT Premium wheels and tires new would be over $1,800 without mounting.. So $800 for a set with 3,000 miles on them for $800 appears to be a great deal. I'd have to put my Stock V6 premiums up for sale and just hope to get a few hundred to offset the cost because storing tires is not a good idea due to dry rot.. Anyone know what it would cost to get the speedometer set for 19 verses 17?

I bid on a set with 300 miles on them on Ebay. $175 to ship them. If I can get them for under $800 that would be nice.
