WTS: M38 Wheels (5) with new Speedway Tires

Post by mit31 » Wed Sep 12, 2018 4:45 pm

Checking to see if there is any interest in someone buying the set of 5 original M38 rims and mounted like-new 600-16 Speedway NDT tires I have. Rims are proper early M38 with pilot holes.

The catch is local pickup ONLY, in Long Beach, CA.

Rims were blasted and primed/painted OD319. No cracks, balanced and weighted.

$675 (lowered from $875) for the set of 5 wheels and tires

Sounds like a fair price when you consider:

Used rims $50 each = $250
New tires $90 each = $450
Blasting $25 each = $125
Tubes x5 = $55
Mount and balance = ?
Painting = ?

TOTAL = $880 not including the ? and shipping on tires and tubes

I'd come get them if I wasn't right in the middle of doing the same thing on my Jeep.

Thanks. I tried to price out a good deal; I'm just not sure what the demand is for M38 wheels, unlike say, combat rims. We'll see!

A few have inquired about shipping. I have no way to pack these or transport to a shipper. If someone has a service that can pick up the wheels from my house and pack/ship them, I'd be totally fine with that, if it is a service that exists.

I've had tires/wheels shipped to me via UPS with just a shipping label attached...no packaging whatsoever.
