Foose Legends on Ebay

I have been looking at Foose Legends thanks to Matt. Love the look of his and pretty much decided these are for me. Anyway, most of the major wheel places run about $1400 for 4. Found several sets on Ebay for $699, roughly half. Was wondering how this could be? Seller has been doing this since 2001 and has a 100% positive rating. I am always cautious of anything that seems too good to be true but like to save $$ any way I can with my addiction. lol. Any opinions??

They are probably "seconds" that are not 100% perfect. That also tells you how over priced that these probably are.

LOL! You are right about that, Tom. everything has a massive markup. If it was a very minor blem that was virtually unnoticable I could live with. Bent or something is another story. I paid more than that for a new set of 15" rallys, so I guess I will proceed with caution.

Re: Foose Legends on Ebay

Be careful, you will end up running wheel spacers on an 8" wide wheel with a 5.5" back spacing. That's a positive 25 offset not 14 as advertised. When you see wheels advertised like these they could be come backs that someone ate a big restocking fee.

To center and get the widest tire fit on a 1st gen a positive 6 offset is what you are shooting for.
