15 Inch ATS Bundt Wheels + Tires
« on: February 07, 2019, 22:26:31 »
I bought these years ago for my Pagoda.  Recently added new Michelin 215/65-15 Defender tires.  I put them on the car and decided the look was not what I wanted.  $1600 for all 4 with tires.  Less than 100 miles on the tires.

Located in East Tennessee convenient to I40 and I75.  I really don't want to ship them.

Here's an update.

I really need these wheels and tires out of my garage.
I've lowered the price, in fact they are eBay now, No Reserve, starting bid $1000

Those 15" bundt alloys are really hard to find. If I did not already have a set, I would be on my way!

The aftermarket "Bundts" are difficult to sell. Originals are forged wheels made by "Fuchs". All others are cast. I had a set of "Intras" for sale for a long time, before I finally was able to divest of them.
Biggest problem with selling them on ebay or any other on-line venue is shipping cost. It may be more than the wheels are worth.

Even these after market versions are difficult to find. They are still quality made by Ronal. The most obvious difference is there is no steel insert around the holes of the after-market bundts. On the originals (14" or 15") you will always see the steel inserts. In any case I used a set of these 15" aftermarket versions on my 450SLC Rally car for years with no problems.

For decades I was also convinced that the steel inserts where exclusive to the original forged Fuchs wheels, but I have seen aftermarket wheels with steel inserts.
I have a couple of those somewhere. Don’t remeber the brand, could be ARC.

Anybody want them for $850?  Remember, BRAND NEW MICHELINS INCLUDED.  Mounted and balanced, ready to use.

I like the look of the 15" rims. Besides that, the choice of tires is a lot better.
It also improves the handling of the car.
But everybody has a different taste. Perhaps the attached picture will help to sell your wheels.
Good luck, Urban
