Yup, depends people want or not. Got buyer prices can be high, no buyer then cheap also no one wants. Like the VR, people looking for normal car will pay only market value of the normal galant, but those who knows and wants a VR will pay 3 times more for it.....:driver:
yeah, similarly. Those ppl into playing old skool cars. Car enthusiasts will see these cars with worth many times the ori price due to the attached value... (say, the Toyota AE86) while a typical auntie/unker will easily sell the "junk" for a few hundred buck becoz they see it as "lau yah" car.

Not many people will get this set of rims, considering the large size. 275/30/19 won't fit in many cars unless modifications is done. Tyre price not going to be cheap either. But still, this is a great rim to me. :adore:
Well, he post in skyline thread, so these rims are probably meant to be for the GTR. If others wants it, have to be able to fit their ride.....:driver:

Hello everyone....sorry to dig out this old thread...I am thinking of selling this 19" TE37 SL, to make way (and get me some modal) for 18" wheel + tire....does anyone have any thought how much it worth in the used market now?
If ori Japan, TE37 SL is damn expensive leh, I think even used price can still sell above rm6k. How much did you buy it last time anyway?

i didn't buy it separately....they comes with the car...can already foresee the future that i won't be able to afford the tires once they wear out....haha...so that's the main reason lah to let it go...since most other skylines i saw are on 18"...

Yup, 18' is much more suitable for R34.
What I can suggest to you is you first browse around what 18' rims and tires you're targeting as replacement to get the price of those. Then offer your used 19' with a price higher than that so you would even have spare money to save after replacement. I'm sure your 19' TE37SL can fetch a pretty high price, more expensive than most other JDM rims.

My relative bought a new CE28 19' several years ago for 20k. Those are wide rims as he is fitting 245/35/19 on front, 275/30/19 on rear of his Z33 Fairlady Z.

I guess this TE37SL can fetch quite a high price.

Currently there are a couple of TE37SL brand new on sale in mudah for around 8-9k but those are 18', so not sure how much would be the 19'.

if you ask me, the "best rims" for the car will be the custom-order and made. For the perfect offset, width, that suits the car body, wide body version, big arch, etc. The manufacturer then drill the required PCD...

With the right amount of moolah....anything can be customized. Even diamonds studded one can be done.
