I’m not selling these here right now. Looking for what’s a fair price to sell to someone local to me not on the forum
I love Jeeps mainly 1986 and older. I like rust free, V8, lift kits, and big tires. I’m not into keeping things factory and I’m not up on the rising prices on some of the factory parts
I picked up a rusted 1984 Scrambler. Rims are supposed to be factory to the Jeep. They are made in Canada with a date code 8/1983 and 15x7. There are 4. I have a 5th that’s 15x7 with a date of 3/83.
What is a fair price? One has more rust than others. The 5th the clear is off.
Also have the 4 center caps and screws off of it. Fair price?
I’m in PA if that matters032DC88E-58C0-4958-B23D-3F4FD9352C31.jpegFDF589D8-2329-4E8E-A1B4-2951E9E1EF9E.jpeg5FDACAD4-ECDD-4E15-9586-EF2E45122EC6.jpegE014BFEF-322A-427B-AA44-CA02973514FB.jpegE2B31A42-9DB0-46D7-8885-476572D96221.jpeg1CFB9830-3DAF-40EE-81D2-D1874A74E69D.jpeg

Perfect rims can get $100/ea+. Marginal rims that'll clean up nice, $75ea (some of yours look like they might fall in this category). Pitted, rusted rims - $25ea maybe.

Center caps go for $20ea+ depending on condition.

I've seen those wheels go for well over $100 a piece on the survivor page on Facebook in similar condition. They look like they'd clean up pretty well with some steel wool. Agreed on the center caps at $20 or so each.

The 15x8 with center caps were only made 1981 so they are rare. The 82-86 were all 15x7 which were much more common.

If in mint condition, you could probably get $100-150/wheel easily, but once they get any rust on them, the value drops waaaaaay off. Once they start rusting, there's no stopping it.

I have a couple that I can clean up, and they look ok for awhile, but eventually, the rust comes back

Dangit, just realized both of yall have been around for along time, and probably knew all of that.

Given the condition, I think the $20/cap is fair, and I'd probably try to get $300 out of the wheels, take less if need be since they have some rust.
