Default FS: 4-15"x 8" American Racing wheels T70R

Last week I sold my C3 Corvette and the buyer wanted the original rally wheels instead of the American Racing Wheels I had put on the car.

I have no need for these rims and would like to sell them. They are like brand new even though I bought them 9 years ago (I think). The car never saw rain or even a hose while these rims were on it and was always garaged.

As you can see, the rims look as good as new and I really haven't cleaned them up yet. They are 15" x 8" with zero backspacing; they fit my 1969 Corvette perfectly. I am also including the lug nuts that I had purchased for these.

I am asking $650.00 for the rims and lugs. This is pick up at my location only; I have no way of packing these up and shipping.

I can't believe no one is interested in these; they looked great on my 1969 and gave it that perfect period correct look.

Not trying to be annoying, just helpful...I think you're meaning zero "offset", not zero "backspace". However, in reality, they do have a little offset, as backspace is measured from the outer edge to the mounting pad, which you have done. HOWEVER, the overall width of the rim, is approximately 9", so with your tape measure showing 4" backspace, there's approximately .5" of offset.

Maybe the racing junk.com site is still around.....NOT that those wheels are junk, in any way, shape, or form. There's just a LOT of high performance stuff listed there.
