      As the title states... I have 5 not 4 Lobster claw18x8.5, 5x130 reps. these wheels are in excellent condition! Reason for selling is because i bought a car from a friend with these, and im just ready for something different! Previous owner payed $450 a wheel. These wheels OEM are very expensive. Wheels do have tires on them but are ready for new ones. One wheel has a tear in the sidewall. I will have more pics tom.. heres a quick one of them on my car!

      Price $1600 PLEASE NO LOW BALLERS

      OPEN FOR TRADES

      Right now I am without, but my buddy owns a pretty big online wheel shop, so I may have access to something you are looking for. Where are you in NY?

      Forward me on a pic if you have one of exactly what you are looking for. 18", right? My buddy is combing his inventory, and says he has a few different sets he things, not sure if real or rep. Any particular rep brans that you want or don't want? I love those LM wheels, damn - always have. I had a pair on my GTI years and years ago, gold if I remember...sweet! I sold them why?

    7. 04-27-2010 12:55 PM #7
      Can you give the the exact info on those lobster wheels? Is it 18x8 or 18x8.5, and what about the offset? Just measuring now and looking for a tire I can use on my rig. Thanks!

    8. 04-27-2010 01:04 PM #8
      why does the title say theyre reps and in the description youre trying to pass them off as real?

      in the description, in the first sentence it states thats these are reps im guessing your asking this question because i wrote " these wheels OEM are very expensive". the reason i wrote that because i thought people would bash about the price of these REPS. OEM lobster claws cost over $4500 from the dealer.( and they only come in 19's) so i wrote that so i could give people an idea that these reps are worth 450 a wheel. hopefully i solved your confusion!!

      OK, so I have sent you numerous messages, posting on this page as well, without any further response. Are you interested in selling or not? I still have no response from my buddy, which means he has been loaded for days, lost his internet or just doesn't have a full set like he thought.

      yeah im still selling them, i didnt think your were that interested. I see you live in Utah , and shipping will be pricey and on your behalf. i would have to get a price from UPS for shipping. unfortunely i work out of town monday threw friday so im quite busy. ill PM you my phone number and we can discuss this further !!

      I pm'd you some info. I already have shipping solved (if you are willing to deliver to a terminal in Albany for me). I really need the exact dimensions/offset etc. however. I cannot purchase until I know I can get a tire on them that will work for me.

      i cant find the offset on the internet, ill have to it off the back of the wheel.. what are you gonna run them on?? and which terminal are you talking about?

      The vehicle is a VW Vanagon Syncro Camper. I have seen two of the two wheel drives running the 19" version, but I need more clearance with mine, so the 18" will help. I want to confirm that there is a decent tire I can use with them. The offset is probably not an issue but I still need it to ensure I dont have any screwy rubbing.

      yeah the tires on them right now are kinda big for the wheel, like i said the tires need to be replaced soon. 1 of the rims has a flat tire . side wall got blown out.. so thats good that ur looking for new tires for them.

      I'm sure these aren't available anymore, but its worth a shot. Very interested pending the offset if they are still available.
