Dumping the sl/slk AMG wheels - suggestions?

I need to make room in my garage so I want to get rid of my 18" AMG wheels/tires off my sl500 sport (Michelin PS) and my slk55(Pirelli)... cheap. Not sure of the price or where to place the ad. I was going to try craiglist? $600 per set? Tires are 90% or better with no curb rash on wheels.

I hope this isn't inappropriate to ask.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreaciated. thx.

Yes pics would be great, and if you're shipping as I'm in NorCal.

Six hundred dollars for a set of factory wheels and tires in good condition is a great price. I sold the factory wheels and tires (4600 miles) off my SLK 55 last year for $1000. They sold quickly. Post on the MB forums, pictures are a plus. Many are not familiar with the wheels from a SLK 55 or a SL 500. Good luck.

1. Upload the pix to photobucket.com (free service)
2. copy and paste the IMG code in your post.

Wheels and tires look to be in great condition. Hope you get to sell them quick.

Thanks -1-.
Thanks to everyone for their input. I placed an ad on MBworld and craiglist for each set at $995 since the tires are in great shape. If the person is local to southern cal, I can even drop them off......now to find a used supersprint x-pipe and clear side markers......hehehehehehe

I'm assuming you sold the slk55 rims already, but if they are still available, I'd be interested.
