Default finally getting rims!! (update, got em!)

Ive been casually looking for rims for my car for a while now and I found this set about 45 minutes away from me. Im going to take a look at them tomorrow. The ad in the paper says 550 obo. He says they are in mint condition with no scratches or dents, it comes with locking nuts, and they have tires mounted but they are worn out so ill have to get them taken off. Im going to factor in the tire removal and disposal when I talk to him and Im hoping to get them for 500 with tires, or 450 wthout. they are 16" chromed aluminum by Streetwear (ive never heard of them). Let me know what you guys think, im 85% sure Im gonna buy them so I want your opinions in either drection, thanks
p.*., this is the car they came off of, because he said he has enough racing type stuff on his other cars so he went back to stock.

I have to admit I am a fan of color match rims on your year bonnie.
But I think they will look great on your Black car.
Good luck with the price bargining.

I've always been partial to the color matched also. Chrome always looks good on a dark colored car though

well i bought em! theres not a mark on them, just need a good polish. They have a 100 and 115 bolt circle, and cast aluminum center caps, not that plastic crap. No curb damage, never seen winter salt, no chrome chipping, the weights were the clip on type but theyre on the back side of the wheel, the tires are not too bad, they were a good tire just worn down a lot, ive got 2 brand new tires on my car now so ill get those switched over and leave the two best tires on the new rims. I ended up driving and hour and 20 minutes each way, but i think it was worth it, he wanted 550 but i decided to give him 460 (because i had only 20s) i wasnt going to bother haggling over a couple bucks, i was prepared to pay the 500 as soon as i saw them. Im going to shine one of them up and toss it on to see what it looks like. i can only get at one wheel of my car due to the storage situation. Pics will be very soon.
