Default Quick question about c900 wheels - value

I know we all hate these questions, sorry in advance. and no, this isn't a classified ad...

I have a set of shelby's on my car, ed. grey. In the garage I have a set of -87 SPG wheels, comparable condition. I have to get rid of one set... which one is worth more?

My gut tells me the shelbys but I don't know because -87 SPG wheels were only available for a few years (85-87 right?)... what's this board's opinion? I like both so I don't care which I get rid of, I'm just looking to get max dollars. Would the spg wheels sell better with a side skirt kit or alone, do ya think?

You don't see too many "full package" sets on eBay, might be worth more??? as always, thanks in advance.

The Shelbys are worth way more. I wouldn't pay more than $25/each for SPG rims in decent shape.

The Shelbys fit on other cars; I believe it's MG owners who snap them up, too.

On ebay it is always better to sell separately you will get more and some will not want both. As for which wheels are worth more I agree with "gorper", but the SPG's are worth more like $250. to $350. Depending on condition.

I should have qualified my statement: Where I live, Saabs are a dime a dozen. The SPG wheels, therefore, are pretty easy to come by.

Put them on ebay you will get more for them then in your location. The only problem is the shipping.

well, i live where you live (pacific northwest) so your statement is still helpful.

92-vert you're right, shipping is terrible these days... and wheels aren't light. i guess that's what makes craigslist great, huh.
