Default Current price for 97-99 stock wheels?

What are the stock "wagon wheels" with caps and lug nuts selling for?

Unfortunately not much unless someone wants a spare set for something like track wheels - they're just not that poplular. If you could get say $200 for a set I think it would be good. The right buyer might offer a bit more - you just never know.

If you were closer I would buy them. I have those wheels with the wagon wheel makeover kit on them and they look pretty good, to me anyway. But I have been considering buying some and actually painting that look on them. But I wanted to try it out on a different set first.

To give people an idea what they could look like and offer some possibilities for a decent looking inexpensive look, here

That makes the wheel look pretty solid!

Agree. $50 each if they are in very nice condition. I recently sold a set of nice ones for $50 each. You should at least be able to get $125 for a decent set.

I noticed that they sell much better if they have tires, even if the tires are not very good.

I tried to sell my '99 wagon wheels for $250 and didn't get a single call. A year later I had some old runflats that I put on them and sold them the first day for $400.

Good luck.

Seems I read here there's a market for wagon wheels in the ricer community. Do a search and you may be able to find more info.

There are a few VW's running them. I also have a 3rd Gen Camaro & vette wheels are very popular on them (I have my stock thin spokes on my camaro). If they are in good shape, try 3rd gen.org & you should have no trouble selling these. Like they say, "one man's trash is anothers treasure"....

Here is a pic of my camaro, I think they look great!!

those are some high prices for ugly rims. I sold my wagon wheels for $60 for all four 7 years ago. I was just happy someone took them off my hands..

I am not selling a set I have a friend that is selling a set from his 99. Average condition, no tpms or tires, just wheels, caps and lugs. He wants $200. I think given the market for them that is too high.

it is but he could get 125-150

they do sell for 50 each

but i wouldn't split them. would take forever to sell all 4

even 100 cash in person is better than trying to ebay and ship them.

Considering what wheels I see on some cars that people pay high prices for I'd say they hold their own.

One day in the future when all of the wagon wheels have been thrown away and everyone is wanting to restore their early C5's to original condition, they will be worth thousands








or maybe $50...

i'm not sure why more people don't use them for track wheels. with slicks you have an amazing amount of grip and who cares about the corrosive brake dust from track pads
