here is a pic of the rim with the worst curbage



and another rim with curbage.

Again this curbage is nothing really noticeable from even a few feet away and nothing that can easily be machined out.

What suspension are you running?
H&R Sport Spring with Koni Adjustables

I'm only familiar with the 18X8 RX, not the 8.5
Your absolutely right I put the number for RXII's my bad. So yeah they're 18x8 sorry and only 23.5lbs before tire. with a 32mm offset

Man dude! You gotta either learn how to park or stop letting people drive your car that don't know how to park. The Passat does have the right mirror that goes down to view the curb. That has prevented me from getting any curbage. Just thought I'd let you know. I wouldn't pay more that 250 for those rims with all that damage.

Once you curb RXs the rim usually needs to be refinished. From what I've seen, the curb damage must also crack the clearcoat and allow corrosion to mess up the rest of the rim. I personally don't think the rims are worth the asking price in that condition.

Good for you! :crazy:

Bump for a good guy and a sweet set of wheels! You can have that wheel refinished for $90.00 to brand new condition.

thx for the bump Elias. Appreciate everyone comments, but again thats why the price is 900 OBO. And there is only curbage on two of the rims, and I got them like that and again the only reason you can see the curbage is that the wheels are dirty and their close up in all the other pics i have of ther car, you can't even tell the wheels are curbed.

just to keep things in perspective each of these wheels is 375 each at tirerack. so thats 1500 in wheels minus 500 hundred in depreciation for curbage and use even, im still only asking 900 plus shipping OBO. Shipping for these wheels is less then 100 hundred bux because they will be shipped rims only which only weight 23.5lbs.
