Have an offer for wheel swap, what do you think? RPF1

Hey guys,

I have a set of Black RPF1 17x8 w/ caps wrapped in 225/45 Axenis RT615K almost new.

Selling for $1400, guy offer me a trade of RPF1 SBC 17x9 with what appears to be stock 215/45 Michelins. He's willing to put cash on top.

To me, I'm almost thinking of at least $400 on top to make it worth my while. I'm not a fan of stretched tires and if I were to put some on, it would be 225's most likely.

What do you guys think? I'm not sure it's worth it!

His wheels should be worth about $300 more and will be a huge upgrade in looks IMO. I'm not a fan of 215 on a 9" wheel either, but I'd jump all over that if he is willing to add any cash at all. Maybe negotiate a tire swap as well, 215 would be better on those 8" wheels.

Seen a couple with 215 and never look back to me. Agree with upgrade looks with those wheels.

Do it! 17x9 RPF1's will forever have a much higher resale/trade value than the x8's since they're more at home on multiple chassis (240's, s2000's, etc...) especially for track applications. Sort the tire situation out with whatever he throws on top and you got yourself a killer deal. Hell if the Michelins have decent tread, you can dismount those and make a little more cash selling those for cheap. I'd shoot for 235 or 245s though, but it's all personal preference.

Plus SBC always seems to be the most sought after finish with these since they were not offered in all sizes

With HFP, would 17x9's rub with a 235/40 ?

I'm not looking to modify the car in any way outside of these wheels and tires, so I would want to just handle a direct swap.

I don't think it would but I'd check the RPF1 thread to see if anyone has the same setup (I'm sure there are multiple cars on here with that identical configuration)

I didn't see the wheel offset mentioned, that is going to be important.
