    Hi guys,

    Asthe title says, I'm toying whether to sell my winter wheels and tyres as I don't have the space for them to be stored when not in use, but I really don't know what they are worth.....

    They are the original fat 5 spoke design 16" alloys with proper Fulda Kristall Montero 2 winter snow tyres, they're in average shape, 2 wheels have kerb rashes up a couple of spokes and one other one has spider webbed laquer. The tyres are all very good with even wear, rear tyres on 5mm and the front ones are between 3-4mm.

    Would really like to keep them, especially as my wife now has a b6 avant herself, but as said just don't have the room for them in the shed what with it being stacked up with garden toys for our 3 kids.

    So what do people reckon the going rate is? Hard to price wheels that have winter tyres I think.

    Have you tried completed listings on eBay? You might get an idea on there if you can find a similar set. Maybe wait until later in the year as you might get more for them then.

    I'd also look into splitting the tyres from them. Someone might already have a spare set of alloys and want just tyres. When I looked for wheels it seems that tyres and wheels together don't always make as much.

    And there's bound to be someone who will want a set of those awful 16's maybe! I've kept mine purely for winter tyres. If I ever get rid of the audi I'll sell them on, or donate them. :)

    I bet they'd look quite nice on a smaller car, as I like the design. But, they're just too small for the a4.

    I don't think they look too bad actually, your right in the sense that they look too small for a big car but for winter wheels they are perfect cos they're so easy to clean!

    I've already asked around but anyone I know that may of had some space in their garage etc is completely out of space.

    Here are some pics of them, I hate putting things up for auction on eBay incase they hardly have any watchers and it ends up selling for absolute peanuts, then I'd be gutted, even a reserve I wouldn't know what to set it at really.....
