PA: SSR Type-C wheels

Fronts are 16x6.5, +32 offset with 225/45R16 Yokohama Advan A-048's (mfg date: 2003)
Rears are 17x7.5, +37 offset with 245/40R17 Yokohama Advan A-032R's (mfg date: 2005)

I bought these several years ago as a second set but never really got around to using them.

Located near Philadelphia but I drive all over the NE and Mid-Atlantic for work so it might be possible to work out some local-ish delivery.

NEW PRICE:
Asking $1200

Hi Dobes
I wanted to ask if the front wheels rub since it has an aggresive size on it. And does it show beyond the fender or is it flush?
Also if purchased are you willing to ship to California?
Are conditions of wheel set mint? Scratches, bends etc?
Thank you very much!

Hi,
I am interested in your SSR Comps.

My phone/ text: 303-521-8979

As asked above, any curbage/ road rash chips/ wheels true?

Thanks, very much. I live in Denver but have a friend who lives in Philly that could pickup.

Sorry, busy weekend! The wheels are straight with no curb rash. I went out and looked them over in detail and took a photo of the worst blemish. As you can see it's not much. I'd give these wheels a 9.8/10 for condition.

As far as rubbing, I never experienced any and have been running the same size tire on my Lotus Cup wheels for at least 10k miles without issue. The Cup wheels are only 1 mm different in offset for reference.

Pick up greatly preferred! I will ship if I get desperate...

Basically. I'll update if something falls through. Otherwise, they are off the market.

The wheels are back on the market still at $1200. I removed the old tires so now the wheels are ready for the tire of your choice. They are light!

FYI, I investigated shipping and it's on the pricey side (~$300 including insurance and boxing) in case anyone is wondering.

Still for sale bump. Bring in 2019 with a new set of super lightweight wheels so I can bring in 2019 with $1200!

Hmm, good looking wheels. Are they the same size and offset as the factory LSS Wheels? Do they clear the calipers and everything else?

Thank you, Frank

The offset is off by 1mm F/R so it's a negligible difference. They are the same size as the Exige LSS set up. No clearance issues with my stock AP Racing brakes.

These are back from the dead. No interest before so I let them sit around collecting dust. Wheels are still available for $1200 sans tires. Hopefully someone in the Northeast is interested! I can possibly work out delivery within a reasonable distance.

Still available folks! Updated picture after dragging them back out into the sun. Also added a bonus pic showing how they appear on an Exige (not my car or wheels in the pic - it's just for reference!)

I googled and it looks like the 17's are 12.3lb/ea. I'd guess the 16's are in the 11lb range
