Take off wheel question

I may have a chance at a set of new street glide/RGC take off wheels and tires, still waiting on an answer from the dealer. They are getting in contact with three other customers that may want to sell their stock wheels. I was picking the GM's brain as to what he thought they might be asking and he said "a grand" I told him that I would not pay that price. What would be a fair price for these, I see them on ebay anywhere from $350 to over $500, and if I end up with a non ABS set what do the new bearings cost and is this something I could do myself. How tuff is it to do the wheel swap, I have the spoke wheels om my Ultra now and have gotten tired of cleaning them. Thanks for any advice or opinions.

Wait or post on this forum that you want some. A grand is freakin rediculous. I am selling my front tire to someone right now for 140 shipped to him. Its a rim and tire off a custom with about 4000 miles on it. Be patient on here and you'll find great deals.

I paid $400 for both a front and rear with rotors/ABS bearings and approx 3000 miles on the tires. Yes they are easy to swap out took me about an hour and a half to do both

Just my $.02 I sold both my wheels and tire for $500 with 170 miles on them

For $1K, I'd have a hard time not laughing in his face as I walked away

My dealer is swapping me a brand new SG take off set of wheels and tires for free.

Plenty of good deals on them out there. Just look around and be patient.

Too much

I picked up a 19in agitator take off from a chicken for 400 with rotors and brand new tire. Don't pay close to anything new especially when there are take offs everywhere. I just stalk all the customers when they go in for service. But go figure the price of rubber + brakes unless you use old ones. And come out with a free rim. When I bought the agitator I needed rubber it just happened to come with it.

This is prolly the same type of person that thinks they can get $800 for the stock HK head unit. LOL
