Default How much would you pay for Chrome Torque Star Rims?

Alright, I've posted before that I would like these, especially for summer rims and use my factory aluminum painted t-stars for winter. I have a '94 SSE is really nice shape for a Michigan car. Little rust, low miles, car looks great, so I plan on keeping it for a while. It'll keep the chrome ones real nice as summer-only rims. I'm a Michigander, so salt rules the road in winter.

I'm starting to look for them. For those that have bought them aftermarket from others (eBay, etc.) or junk yards, what do you think would be a fair price for a set of nice ones with little or no cosmetic damage?

I need help in determining a so-called fair-market value.

Thank you for any advise you can provide!

About $175-200 for a fair set with chrome pealing on the back side of the rim, and up to as much as $250-300 for a perfect set.

I got one near perfect torque star for $25 off of ebay to replace my bent one... If you really look, you can find deals.

Yes, you need to become an ebayhead. Go look everyday, & dont just buy the first set you see. Put a top price you would like to pay & let go everyting that goes over. Eventually youll get them for the price you want. Just be patient.

With Ebay, you can set it up in your favourites so that when one comes up as per your requirement they will email you. I have that set up for about 8 items lasting 6 months.
