    I have a set of genuine 2009 S3 wheels that have come off my my new S3, they have done 400 miles at the most, I no longer need them as they were changed within an hour of getting the car, they are just taking up space in the garage. They are absolutely perfect not a mark on them with 4 brand new Continental conti sport contact 2's. I know the tyres are worth are fair bit so I was just looking for advice on what I should be asking for them. I am looking to sell them on e-bay or to someone on here if there are any interested.

    They normally fetch £600 on ebay second hand so i'd expect £650-700 for yours at least.

    What wheels have you bought, if not genuine Audi i would keep them ready for when you sell the car.

    I would have thought at least £800 if they are mint, considering you have to pay £600ish for a set of reps with fairly basic tyres.

    I'm with Cameron: these are OEM with extremely good tyres at around £120/130 a touch. I would be thinking £350 for the tyres alone. BTW, I though they were on CSC IIIs now?

    I would get a price from Audi (Frenchy, maybe) for the OEM rims and work from there.

    Was watching a set on our favourite auction site which started at £650 and were mint like yours. Failed to find a buyer. Dropped to £600 and they sold straight away.

    You might get lucky and have a few folk watching but, like others have said the tyres are worth more than the alloys on the 2nd hand market. You might make more money trying to find 4 peeps on here prepared to buy one each as a spare and bumping the price up per unit a little.

    If you go for the latter option I'm buyer 1!

    Isn't that just madness? IIRC Brucer (the Edinburgh guy anyway) paid nearly two grand for his OEM RS6s - then rubber on top of that.

    What is it with the S3s then? I know that they're not as intricate, but applying the value of the tyres what we are saying is the rims are only worth about £300. Sheeit.

    It would be interesting to know what they are to buy from Audi though.

    Pluves - you fancy full sized spare then? < Edit: scratch that, just seen it in your post :tumble:.

    I think the problem with the S3 wheels is that the S-lines come with 18's anyway and IMHO, are a better looking wheel! .......runs and hides! :whistle2:

    Lee, you are probably right. I was just thinking that it is obviously supply and demand. I think I have only seen two cars (on forums) that have fitted the facelift rims. So not in big demand as a whole. Pluves is probably right to split them, either as spares or as replacement to U/S ones. I quite like them, but would be unsure of fitting them for fear of looking like a wanna-be.
