Well seller has 0 feedback and the guys who are bidding have a zero feedback too, so it looks pretty suspicious. I call scam, or maybe he got his buddies to bid in the auction, it happens a lot.

I can see people selling a car (or buying one) on Ebay as being new Ebayers with 0 feedbacks. Just because they're selling a car on Ebay doesn't mean that they'd have previously been selling other stuff. More than 0 feedbacks would be nice to see but I wouldn't guess 'scam' right away. Scammers are more likely to push fake Rolexes or other things, not vehicles with VIN's that can be checked in advance. I've been an Ebayer for years and have about 500 feedbacks, all positive, as a buyer and seller, so I have a pretty good sense of what seems like a scam. The bigger chance of a scam here would be on the part of someone bidding and trying to rip off the seller.

That said, my personal opinion is that huge wheels look ridiculous and likely change the Intrepid's firm but refined ride into a buckboard over the bumps. I can just feel the BANG when it hits a pothole. Guess I'm too sensible of a guy to throw away a better driving experience to make my car look ricy. I think the larger-size R/T and 300 factory wheels are great but stuff like 22's are just dumb. Where ya gonna put the wide whitewalls that belong on 'em?

Looks like garbage. People putting huge rims on cars don't realize how that effects handling. Or don't care. Anything for looks, right? There was an article in Motor Trend about how the weight of large rims puts more stress on the bearings and suspension pieces.

the only thing I like about that car is how the tint looks on it, and how they did the box.

Dislike. I'm not a big fan of big rims on any car or SUV. Going one or maybe two sizes(depending on which car) over factory is about all I would do. More than that and they just don't look right to me. I like my cars low to the ground and lookin mean and clean.

On my Hawk I kept the rims cause I really liked them. On the trep I went from a 16" rim to a 17" rim. But I kept the outer diameter of the rim and tire the same as what came stock. I did need lowering springs to complete the look, but with a new wheel with the same diameter as the old the car will perform just as good as it did stock, minus valuable weight and there's no need for speedo recalibration. But obviously that's my taste and everyone has there own take. I'm 31 and when I see a car like the one linked I assume a kid is driving it. Not a knock but maybe more of a generational thing.

I agree I'd be very weary buying a car from an e-bay seller with no feedback.

exactly, and couldn't he sell the wheels alone for "around" the same price as the whole car... it probably doesn't run... maybe he took the motor out and sold that separately!

Thats stupid. Its a very basic trep wth big wheels & some audio. There are so many SEs on this site that have been modded so much better. IMO, that money would have been better spent on some 300m parts or on a 3.2/3.5 conversion.

I have quite a few years on you (even though I just finished a college degree in May) but I agree totally. It's this thing called 'maturity' or 'common sense' where you realize that making any car look "cool" (debatable) is not worth making it ride/handle like crap, not worth making it wear out faster or break more easily, not worth making it less safe or less comfortable.

Hey, I was a kid once and made all kinds of dubious decisions about what to do with my own vehicles but as time goes by you realize what's worthwhile and what is a waste of time and money. When I see people putting Lambo doors on LH's which are not even easy to get into the car under (!) all I can say is "WTF...?" First 'what the' and then 'why the'.
