    Wheel resale opinion

    So i just scored a deal on some tires with rims that I can't use. What do you guys think i can ask for them? 15" x 8" American racing rims, jeep lug pattern 5x5. I figure no one on here is in the vicinity to make a sale, so I figured i'd get resale opinions.... Thanks Sent from my VS988...
