Got an unbelievable deal on some FJ rims and tires on ebay a few weeks ago. Had to drive 5 1/2 hours each way to pick them up in Ohio.
Here's an update on the final cost on the deal:
Bought 4 FJ Cruiser rims & tires - $112.50
Here's the ebay link for the rims and tires:
Bought 4 new center caps on ebay- $60.00
2 tanks of gas for the road trip - $60.00
Food and tolls - $15.00
Dismounting factory tires to sell OEM rims - $32.00
All in cost $279.00
Sold my OEM Sport alloy rims(tires, lug nuts, and pressure sensors not included) on ebay for $495.00 (including shipping fee).
Actual UPS shipping cost - $73.00 (auction shipping fee stated $100.00)
Final net in my pocket when it's all done - $143.00
How many other knuckleheads do you know that can put "aftermarket" tires and rims on their truck (or car) and walk away from the deal on the plus side. Not too shabby if I do say so myself.
I will admit, I was extremley lucky with the deal I got on the FJ rims and tires...... But I like to think that I'm a smart ebay shopper.
