You would be better off posting this up as a for sale ad in the classifieds. There is already a set for sale, asking 1100 iirc with tires. If the wheels are in great shape, Im sure you will get a nice set of benjamins in your wallet, no matter what.
I have to agree I always wished the Madras were avalialble when I bought my W8. But ubfortunately they weren't. If so I would have done exaclty what another memeber already mentioned. I would have kept them just for winter use and my BBS for Summer.
Uggghhhh, I hate to be the odd-man out but the Madras are dead ugly. They look like fake BBS RX's and they are quite heavy! I have to agree with the recommendation of using them as winter wheels. Go out and snag a set of 17 or 18" BBS, and come out pimpin'....
Swami I like your honesty I don't really like them all that much because they look like a bitch to clean.
I was merely highlighting the fact that they are BBS OEM wheels.
You know some peoply get hard when they hear the name BBS. I don't know what that is all about. (well I mean I do know)
I am one of those people that like to raid the OEM parts bins for upgrades to my car. So if I wanted a BBS wheel but I wanted an OEM 17 inch wheel then I would go with the Madras.
I actually prefer the look of the phoenix wheel more than the madras so If I still have my passat in the next couple of years I will try to buy a set of take offs instead of the replicas that www.aaarims.com and www.discounttiredirect.com are selling.
oke: Okay I will shut up now.
