Wheels are Sold.

Had these wheels on my 2000 sp1. They are great shape for 16 year old wheels. No cracks, and they are straight. They could stand to be refinished but they cleaned up real nice. They were well taken care of only showing signs of regular wear for wheels this age. They come with bearings, cush drive and spacers. Looking for 1100 plus shipping.
Please pm number for pics. I am not able to upload anything right now.

Thanks for your interest
Aaron

it will probably be something along the lines of:

"its fat, slow and shitty anyways so why bother, but i still own one with a bunch of shiny shit on it; so carry on"

Honestly I'm not sure. I have heard of tests. Vinegar, throwing them in a fire and see if they catch fire themselves. None of these tests seem to be in anyones best interests. So I priced them accordingly. Now with that said if anyone would like me to.perform the vinegar test on the inside hub where it's raw material I will be happy to do so. Just don't ask me to toss them in a fire or shave fragments off haha.

According to the vinegar test subjective they are indeed magnesium. Now I don't know enough about these wheels to be 100 percent certain but vinegar does not react with aluminum but will bubble and foam up with magnesium.

Mine are actually marked (stamped) somewhere on the rim. Can't remember where though.

These have marchesini on the valve stem but unless they are stamped inside the hub I'm not sure. I can't post pics. Anyone that wants pics or can get them posted in this listing please pm me.
