Help, 19" wheels & tires on ebay too cheap????

I happened across an ebay auction that has TSW or Luxe wheels 19", Vredstien tires new, correct offsets and they're local to me for $1900.00. This seems too good to be true. Does anybody have an opinion on this. I don't want to get screwed, but I need new tires and the PS2s I was going to put on are going to cost $1300 anyway. For another $600 I can get 19" wheels too.

I am really perplexed. Help.

Thanks

Andy

For a little more you can get some high quality wheels with your desired PS2's.

I know,
your wheels are what got me thinking about it. I am sending you a PM to see what we can work out.

I've tried to send PMs, but I don't know if they went through. If not, please send me an email address as I'd like to communicate about your wheels for sale.

This is the same exact setup on my car (TSW Bremmas and Vredestein tires). I paid about 1700 for mine so that is around the same ballpark. I think its a good deal all around and you should take it if you want it. If you are hesitant check out your local tire/wheel shop and ask them for a quote (although theyll prob give you a quote with roughly the same price). The Bremmas are cheap but I like them.........they keep nice and are easy to clean......plus they look great!

Andy has less than 15 posts so far, ergo unable to PM.

Check with DSB and see what you can work out for his wheels & tires. I echo what others stated regarding the TSW Bremmas. I have those wheels (19") with the Michelin PS 2s. Wheel quality is excellent. I elected to spend a little extra and opted for the Michelin PS 2s which I really like. Upgrading your wheels to 18"-19" is money well spent.
