14" Sei Abarth Wheels - what are they worth?

This isn't a for sale thread, i don't have these wheels and won't be buying any to sell anytime soon.

What kinda money are a set of 14" Sei Abarth wheels worth. I hear all the time "they're dead rare them mate" but i don't think they are.

So anyone that has bought some recently, what condition and how much did you pay?

Re: 14" Sei Abarth Wheels - what are they worth?

They seem to come and go them wheels don't they. Sometimes theres loads for sale and other times not.
Can't say i've bought any but would expect to pay 'bout £100 for a mint set, maybe a tiny bit more if good tyres. say £60-75 for some slightly rough ones. But these are just what i'd expect to pay..

I just bought some, had good tyres on and paid 150. Didn't think that was too bad tbh...

Re: 14" Sei Abarth Wheels - what are they worth?

I've been looking as well, not sure what width they are though, 5.5 or 6?

I'd pay around 100 ish withou tyres for a very good set but wouldn't consider buyiog a battered set at all, and I'd want to pick my choice of tyre lol

Re: 14" Sei Abarth Wheels - what are they worth?

The way i looked at it was, that i wanted a set, and was prepared to pay 150. by the time i sold my old wheels, i was well up, so im happy. its fine saying something is worth 'x' amount, but at the end of the day, things are worth different amounts to different people.

Re: 14" Sei Abarth Wheels - what are they worth?

i'm just weighing up if they're worth saving (all need refurb), or weighing as scrap tbh.

Re: 14" Sei Abarth Wheels - what are they worth?

Theyre worth more than 100 quid whoever suggested that price!!!

Ive just sold a set of 13'' sporting alloys that werent mint for over £100 on ebay with one knackered tyre!

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...m=200106957029

Maybe i got lucky but for a mint set at least towards the 200 pound mark for the abarths

Re: 14" Sei Abarth Wheels - what are they worth?

If they are sold with the correct studs/nuts and 10mm spacers for the front then I would say they are worth 150 easy as the studs/nuts and spacers alone from Fiat are 200 new.

Without the studs/nuts spacers then maybe 100 as you can buy the spacers on there own from Fiat for 30 and then buy cheaper studs and nuts from the likes of Rally Design for may 30.

It may be a ridiculous price to pay, but this is why the wheels when sold with the correct studs and nuts have to be worth more. If you have never seen them the studs alone from Fiat are nearly 5 each, and the nuts 3. The studs are unique as I have never seen studs like that before, they are very good but only work with these wheels as they have a 19mm bolt on the stud itself that sits against the hub when you bolt the studs in place, so the Abarth wheels have a cut out on its face to go around the nut.

The spacers are a very reasonable 30ish and i would buy them before any after market ones if I needed 10mm spacers for a Fiat.

True, but regardless of their condition, they are still a sought after wheel. With the cost of ally still going up then the scrap value may be more than what you could get for them, but please don't weigh them in. Blackpool tower must be worth a fortune in scrap (ok, not a very comparison, but i hope you see my point) but that won't disappear.

I hope this will not get this thread locked, but what are they worth to you, ie how much will you get for weighing them in as they are?
