Got new Rims-Wheels...What to do with Factory rims? Any Ideas??
So....I bought new tires and Rims. Wanted to know if anyone did the same (bought to rims). If so, thought to ask what did you do with your old factory rims and to also inquire on what kind of condition were they in (lip bent, road rash, barrel bent, no issues..., etc.)??
I had the dealership try to find out what was wrong with my rims and tires as I had much vibration in the steering wheel. While this could be attributed to several things, I chose to purchase aftermarket brakes, slotted rotors, 4 new tires and 4 wheels/rims.
I plan on taking to the dealership for them to put the brakes on and also do an alignment on vehicle. Bought the k900 certified pre-owned but did not want to keep driving on tires and brakes i don't trust from previous owner.
Anyway, if anyone could share any ideas of what they did with their old rims, I would appreciate. My intent is to get as much money for them as realistically and reasonably possible. When the dealership last had my car raised up, they said, 3 of the rims were mildly bent and one did not appear to have any apparent discrepancy with it. There is some rash near the lips of the rim but they are small. Nothing that is a major eye sore but they are noticeably there when you look at rim closely and concentrate on it. Just looking at the car in general....your eyes don't move to the rim in total grossness due to rash on rim. Itís not that big of a deal (Just thought to put some context on the matter). I would grade the condition of rims as B- or B.
Any helpful information would be greatly appreciated.
1. What did you do with your old factory rims? (Craigslist, eBay, junk yard, gave away, etc.)?
2. What kind of condition (describe) were they just prior to you turning them over?
3. Also, is there a key lock or special device required to remove rotors from vehicle or no...???
