What sizes are they? Like 245? 275? Because 18's are a little more pricey

Re: wheel trade

Save your money. Mach 1 wheels are very unique. Plus your ride quality on what i'm assuming is a 245/45/17 is going to be much better than a 275/35/18(past owner of 18x9 FR500s with those tires and I did not like the ride). Just my opinion.

Re: wheel trade

Do you know the width of these wheels? If they are 18x9's thats too small of a tire. You should runn at least a 255, but a 275 is optimal. I would pass man. You can get a complete bullitt wheel package for $500 then just pay a tire shop and swap your tires on to them esp since they are brand new. Then put your rims on ebay/craigslist and try to sell them for $200-350.

Actual Factory Bullitt rims are going for about $500 new per rim!.. After market are about $250 new per rim!.. Of course if your looking to buy used off of some thing like eBay, then that's a different story!..

Considering tht how much money will he put one top? Mach 1 wheels in my area run from 3-600 with tires depending on condition and tire wear. 18' Bullitts are a bit more like 700. It's also up to you of u wanna buy tires in about a year

Hmm. Well the offset is different so you would need a spacer because if not they will be far in the wheel well
