Looking for an approximate value on a set of original Cooper S 10" x 4.5" steel wheels that are in good condition.

Thanks, Jeff

what is the ballpark? I won't end up using them on my car, if they are not worth much, I will just store them away, otherwise, I'd like to sell them to finance the wheels I want. Thx

Try about £50 a wheel, which is the cost of a new one... some people prefer the originals, however they MUST be S rims and not reverse rims which for some reason people think are worth a lot of money...

if they are 4.5j wide then they're reverse rims and not that valuable

if they are 3.5j wide then they're cooper s rims are quite sort after.

GW is prob right at around £50 a wheel but they need to be in good condition to achieve that.

Cooper S's also had 4.5J wheels ( not reverse )

And the 3.5's are 3.5B wheels ( which is a different bead rim to the J wheel ) and was fitted to all minis ( but the S's offset may have been different not sure about that )

They are 4.5 Cooper S rims... actually found this web page that describes the difference between the two

I might be interested if they are not reverse rims.
