How To Sell Rims Fast

March 26, 2020

Looking for some extra cash? We have a guide to help you sell your rims fast! The two key factors in selling your rims quickly will be the quality of the rims and doing the work for the buyer ahead of time. Here is how to sell rims fast:

1. Set The Price For Your Rims

Do your research. Look up the same rims that you are selling. Try to find a common price range for the same type, size and condition that you are trying to sell. If you want to sell them fast, price them cheaper than the average. Even as little as $10 or $20 less than the average can set you apart for a fast sell.

2. List All Cars Which Fit Your Rims

First, size your rims. Do some research to find all the cars that will fit your rims. List the most common cars first! Doing this work for your potential customers will set you apart. This small amount of work will help your rims sell fast!

3. Test Your Local Rim Shops

After doing your pricing and sizing research, check how much you can get from your local rim shops. They may offer to buy them at the same price you decide to list them. If they do, that’s the fastest way to sell your rims! If their offer is much lower, try to sell them yourself.

4. List Your Rims Online And The Local Newspaper

Put your rims for sale on:

  • Ebay
  • Craigslist
  • Facebook Marketplace
  • OfferUp
  • Letgo
  • Local newspaper’s classified section

Include the list of all cars that fit your rims. Mention all the details of your rims, including:

  • Diameter (standard and metric)
  • Width (standard and metric)
  • Exterior finish
  • Name/brand
  • Design type
  • Material
  • Any features such as free spinning hub caps

Again, the more work you do before you sell, the less work your customers have to do. That leads to faster sales. When you provide accurate information, it only helps your chances.
