So I am thinking or getting some 19inch rims for my Turbo S Beetle.

The current Deltas are in perfect condition, no scratches, marks or clear coat pealing.

They have brand new tires mounted on the front. The rear could do with changing (tread is ok, but there is a wave on the inside edge of the tire tread so i might put brand new tires on to match the front), but are still ok.

I am wondering how much these things would sell for..

Asking about $100.00 per wheel is fair.
You can get them on line any where from $75-165.00 per wheel.
Keep in mind turning a 19" wheel will cost you HP and speed!
Smaller tires are always faster.
If I were to take my Turbo S to the drag strip I wold run 15" wheels!
Any how best of luck with what ever you decide to do.

ok thanks.

I think I will ask $400 for them then to recoup some of the money of getting new rims.

Not too interested in pure performance, if I did, I would not have bought this car. I know I can drop loads of money into it to mod the great 1.8T engine, but i would just be throwing money away. Mods I would like to do are rims and exhaust, maybe a 3 inch turbo back for a nice rumble when the stock exhaust starts to rust through.
