    Value of original 308 rims?? I have sold my 2-owner 1981 308gtsi and remembered that I had the original set of rims up in the garage. In searching this forum, it appeared that these could still be desirable to someone looking to restore a car.
    Just wondering what the current value for these four rims are, and whether there are parties out there interested.....

    Contact the guy you sold the car to, I’m sure he would greatly appreciate getting the original rims for the car.

    Those appear to be original metric wheels for Michelin TRX tires. Probably the least valuable of all 308 wheels and plentiful on Mondials. I'm thinking $100 / wheel ($300-$400/set) is top of the market for these.

    I had a set I gave away and was happy someone wanted them for that price.

    Of all the various 308 wheels, the metric wheels are the ones no one wants because there is only one tire that fits on them.

    As an update on mine, I didn’t get the case of Pliny beer I wanted. How ever I was able to pass them on to another Ferrari owner and free up valuable space in my shed. A fair deal for me, him not so much.:)

    As noted, the 390mm tires to fit these wheels are $400, each.

    So they are really not of much value, at least AFAIK...

    Thanks all for the replies! Not exactly what I was hoping for, but oh well. It is what it is. (I was hoping that there would be a market for someone looking for original spec rims for that era.)

    I'll be around just in case someone sees this and MUST have a set of metric rims.....

    Peace
