these rims

Recommended Posts

hey guys i nothing about rims but i do know 15" is too big for a b210.

 

i have 2 sets that i want to try to sell in order to make funds for some 13"s or possibly 14"s what would a reasonable asking price? both sets have mild wear with slight curb rash

They will fit. Maybe you mean they don't look right? I agree there sometimes. Going up two rim sizes is about the limit for looks on a car designed for a 13" wheel well. There are lots of 15" tires that have the same diameter as the stock B-210 so the performance and speedometer are not affected.

 

I think those are called 'Snowflakes'. At least $25 a piece.

 

Just so you know.... discussion on price or esthetics or what ever is fine but if this becomes an auction this post will be closed and removed. Once you get an idea on your price place a for sale ad here... https://ratsun.net/classifieds/category/7-miscellaneous-datsun-items/  ... the CLASSIFIEDS have a handy link at the top of every page below the RATSUN.NET logo

snowflaks are cool back in the day but there are cooler wheels now

the other wheels are best to recycle to make beer cans and not have to worry about the 10% tax on imported aluminum so Beer stays cheap.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Too often the rims are worth more than the car they are on like a $300 car alarm on a $200 dollar POS. I don't care much for chrome rims too blingy.

I had a set of 70s slots on a beat 510 I had. I took them to the recycler then the guys ask me if I had the lugnuts for these as they barrel shanked type needed for the rim. WTF??????

ROTA make a OS Mesh which is a SSR Mesh clone. They are cheap and a awesome looking rim for the price!!!!!!120 apc

i dont like mesh wheels for the same reason i dont l like the snow flakes, too busy. my car has had its windows smashed on 2 separate occasions for no reason other than petty vandalism, im trying to avoid anything that makes it stand out, if that makes sense.  ideally i want to find some beat up libres or watanabe rims, something ill like to look at, but morons wont notice.

Do some looking to try and confirm the stock application of the "ugly" rims.   Stuff tends to sell better when you list original application. You never know who loves one and wants stock parts.

 

I want to say those are 80s Toyota.  Possibly Previa?  Not sure though.

 

If you were closer, you'd have a PM about those snowflakes.  I love those rims.  But alas Texas is too far to pay for shipping.

 

You could start the snowflake set at $150 if the only damage is cosmetic.

 

Unsure about the uglies.

Avoid anything that stands out????????????????

how about stock rims with a trim ring on there

 

Watanabes not stand out is a oxymoron. That is the holy grail of Jap made rims. Most likly cost more than your car
