Good luck with the sale Ian,

Many on here would not be able to access the RX8OC so it may be an idea to put the pictures and details up in here.
All the best Clive

Clive, thanks. For some reason the thread subscription failed and I have been remiss in checking, so this is a bit late.

I am now starting to sell all the bits and pieces that I accumulated for my turbo conversions, both of which have now been sold.

This listing is for my wheels as follows:
1.   [size=150]OZ Ultraleggera 18” staggered[/size][/b].
a.     Info. Rare and much-sought-after wider rears OZ Ultraleggera 18" with spacers for Mazda's 67.1 bore and complete with all 4 carbon fibre centre caps.
2 wheels are 18” 8J ET48 with 245/40/18 tyres
2 wheels are 18” 9J ET35 with 265/35/18 tyres
The wheels are in excellent condition for used items, noting that there is some minor kerbing and the odd mark.

Tyres are Goodyear Eagle F1 Assymetric with tread depths as follows:
Inner Middle Outer Average, New Depth, Legal Minimum Depth, % tread Left (based on a nominal 6.4 mm from 8 mm new, 1.6 mm legal minimum)
265/35/18: 3.4 3.7 3.7 3.6 31%
265/35/18: 3.4 3.5 3.8 3.6 31%
245/40/18: 5.2 5.6 5.3 5.4 59%
245/40/18: 5.0 5.7 5.3 5.3 58%
There is some minor scoring on the 2 rear tyres from when they were on another car. All 4 wheels/tyres clear the arches.
b. Price. New without tyres these are over £1,300.  As a proportion of new tyre prices the tyres are over £200.
New without tyres these are over £1,300.  So £795 with tyres.

2.    [size=150]MazdaSpeed (Rays) Forged Alloys 18"[/size][/b].
a.   Info.  I’d pencilled in putting these on my R3 for the colder months but have been offered some other alloys and can’t make a decision; I’m therefore putting these up here to see if anyone wants them more than I do. These are extremely rare.  They have been professionally refurbished in satin black and have since had quite a few marks/damage, all of which have been touched up. They look perfect from a distance, but if you want perfection then you need to allow for a refurb.
The wheels come with 225/45/18 tyres, Falken ZIEX ZE914, which are good quality mid-range tyres (see tyrereviews.co.uk here and German review here) with tread depths of 7.0, 7.1, 4.9, 4.7 mm, which are an average of 68% of wear left, equivalent to £245 of tyre based on Camskill’s price of £90.95.
c.   Price.
i.   Alloys.  I’ve been given valuations of £800 to £2,000.
ii.   Tyres. The tyres have an average of 68% of wear left, which is equivalent to £245 of tyre based on Camskill’s price of £90.95.
iii.   All in, how does £995 sound?

For viewing and collection, I am in Redhill, Surrey.  I am happy to courier at cost, roughly £40 plus any payment fees, where packing will take me a couple of days.

If there is more than one buyer interested I will try to be fair to everyone.  To this end:
1.    I will give order of preference by the time that buyers agree/offer to buy either by pm or post.  Note that only [paid up] members can post here, non-members being able to only PM me, so being the first to post doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re in pole position.
2.   Unless agreed otherwise, an agreement to buy will hold the item for 48 hours and a 10% deposit will hold it for 2 weeks.
