Good Deal?

I can get 4 of the alloy wheels off a 2004 intrepid for my 2002 for 200 bucks for all of them the tires are about the same as mine so there no real advantage there. The guy thats buyin the car from work could careless he just wants it since his car is dieing. So i can get rid of the hubcaps and steel wheels for his alloy wheels. I haven't found a good complete set anywhere with in reasonable driving distance. Shipping off ebay puts the wheels at over 100 each

doesnt sound bad. alloy r alot better than steel in my opinion. $50 per wheel is a worthy investment. I personally would hold out for some better ones like some of of a charger but if thats your option go for it.

is this the SE type alloy? kind of like the 98-01 ES alloy but with a weird starblade shape? I personally don't like them... IMO the 03-04 SXT alloy (chrome too), the momentum is pretty sweet...

...don't complain too much.. the chrome will peel off with time. Sometimes I wish my R/T's wheels were not chromed. They are in a very bad condition...

even better, the chromes are crap, they peel in the winter and will look terrible.

Some locals are getting the rims you are looking at for cheaper but i think it was without any tires so thats why.

Good luck

well the cheapest i can find is 50 bucks a rim with 25 bucks shipping per rim so thats already 80 bucks more. These rims are in fantastic shape no marks on them at least till my wife curb rubs them. There aren't to many of them floating around here most of the intrepids came with hub caps here it would appear.
