    I bought my BBS rims, with tires for $500 total on craigslist. The rims alone are $300 a pop new.

    Patience is the key...have to wait for the right deal to come along.

    I appreciate the input but I am not talking about selling or buying... I am talking about people that have TRADED items off of Craigslist.

    I met a guy in a parking lot on a Saturday morning and traded my stock wheels and Dunlops for his aftermarket wheels and 265 75 16 Hankooks. He was selling his truck and wanted it all to be stock, didnt have many more miles on his set. Worked out well... I can see how you could get screwed though if you are trading with someone and they have a set of junk.
