How much are these worth?

Painted my stock wheels black and got a new set now. now I would like to sell these. They look good from far but are far from good. Def. didnt turn out as nice as I would have liked them to. If I had to do it over again I wouldnt have used the wheel paint I used. Probably would have used what I used on my rear bumper. So tell me what you think they're worth......

They are worth what you can sell them for.

If they're still in good working order and just don't look too good, I say they'd make excellent wheels for spares at $30 or so a pop.

im not sure on the value of 16" alloys but 17" alloys on the 05 models are about 500 cdn each new. Obviously they are not new but im sure they are worth more than $30each as was previously mentioned.

Not with the fucked up paintjob they're not. They're basically only good as spares now, and you can find a spare steelie at a junkyard for $25 or so, new for not much more.

Not trying to crap your thread, just trying to answer your question honestly.

If you had them resurfaced and powdercoated, you could probably get $100 - $125 each.

I def. dont want to mess with re-doing them or having them powder coated. That would for sure be too much wasted time for too little money. I just want them out of my garage. I decided to throw them on craigslist in my local area at $1 Milllion dollars a piece to see if I could get any takers. hoping to be a "four-millionaire" by the end of the week. We'll see.

^^ that will only work if they have a great paint job like mine. Here's my advice. Buy the cheapest paint you can find. dont clean the wheels at all. Sanding is for pussies...What do you want them to look good or sumthin? Paint as unevenly as you can. I'm pretty sure I used a blindfold on mine and they turned out great!! then you got yourself a set of million dollar wheels.

They are still structurally sound. The paint can easilly be removed and re applied by someone. They should be worth much more than 30 bucks each....

Our trucks come with wheels. Perhaps you noticed. The only reason to buy someone else's are:

- Specs to allow for better wheel positioning with a different size tire. OEM TRD OR tires have horrible specs for this. Way too much backspacing, way too much positive offset.

- Aesthetics. To make things look better. While black wheels have appeal to some, the paint on these wrecks that option. Again, remove the paint problem and value rises considerably.

- Structure. Yes, they are structurally sound, but again, you can get OEM spare steelies/SR5 steelies for $25ish from most junkyards/self-serve yards. If you're pricing as a spare, which is all these have left, they set the minimum.


You pay more than $30 per if you want. Not my money.

If the OP redoes the paint to something quality, again, I can easily see him getting $100 a wheel.

No need to be a dick. I was speaking, for example, if someone had steel wheels on their truck, and wanted aluminum. For that matter, wanted a different color, possible black, they would be fine.

Depends on whether or not the issue with the paint has to do with surface prep. But even then, OP could re-sand, re-paint and probably have much better results. If it was me, that's the route I'd go.

A simple hand sand and a can of Gloss spraypaint would require little effort and prevent the issue entirely. It looks as if you just didnt spray the paint evenly, not a prep issue. With the wheels non mounted and just laying there, it couldnt be easier to spray them with paint, repost them on Craigslist and be done with it all.
