Should I go w/ detroits and sell them?

I'm placing my order this week and I'm getting every option but the 18" Detroits because I already have 18" OZ's in the garage. I'm leasing the car and $870 isn't that much more money and I was thinking about selling the wheels and tires anyways.

So do I order the Detroits and sell them to try and make some money or save the money and sell the 17" stocks? What do you think I could get $$$$ for those wheels and tires btw? Is $1250 a realistic price for Detroits with tires and less then 100 miles on them?

Thanks for the help.

Remember when you lease a Vehicle it must return the same way it left when you left the lot. Well thats how it is in PA. So just keep that in mind.

And I think that is too much

Also you can sell them as a set or by each on the vortex as there are a lot of people with scratched up Detroits

That is Waaaaaay to much. From what I have seen most sell new rims/tires for what the price would be for just the tires new. Might wanna be carefull check with the lease peeps .. If they want the Detroits it will/can get expensive looking for Detroits at the last minute.

I had a Celica GTS and sold my factory wheels with tires for $500 on ebay and bought used Aftermarket 18s with brand new tires for $500 on ebay.
With the Celly the GTS rims were in high demand it was pretty much the only way to tell if it was a GT or a GTS.. I dont see a high demand for Detroits

Thanks for the input. I usually sell the car before the lease runs out so I'm not to worried about returning the car.

I didn't think I would get that much but that was a hopeful price, if I can't really make much money then I for sure don't want to add the $870 option for nothing. I had a hard time trying to sell my OZ ultralaggera's with tires for that same price so I just kept them.
