Says fits up to 2006 so should be them!
Hard to tell sometimes when taken from above, later ones ( 2007 and on ) are more flat faced where the ones we use are more dished
Looked to be scuffed up some for 4 I'd offer 150 to start
I got 5 couple of years ago for little less than 2 bills with one having minor scuff
( well paid 200 then the guy gave me 30 back to take my wife out to dinner LOL

Thanks Tom, I'll see if the guy still has them- the posting is 19 days old. Maybe he's still sitting on these and wants them gone.. you never know.

Still available- asked for pictures of the other two wheels not shown in the ad, as well as clearer shots.

If the owner won't budge from $200 for 4 wheels, do we suppose that's still a fair price? Lord knows they'd be light years better than the flaking, peeling, leaking air around the bead that my OE wheels are...

Also sucks that these wheels are an hour from home - but I've not seen Moabs for sale around here for less than $125-$150/wheel, IF at all.

Very first set of Moabs I bought was north of New Haven Mi, 95 miles from where I lived at the time in Toledo ( Ohio )
Grabbed them as soon as they hit the Great Lakes 4x4 site.
They are getting harder to find for sure

Picking them up on Sunday; $150 for the four. One of them has two small chips in the backside rim, outside of where the tire bead fits. I'll see about fixing that and refinishing the entire set.

If I find a single, fifth wheel, for sale, in better shape, I'll use the chipped one as the spare.

I think it's best to do a 5-wheel/tire rotation. It evens out the wear, allowing you to get more miles out of a set of tires. It also prevents potential damage to your gears when running one wheel/tire with a larger circumference than the others, which could happen if you need to use the spare for some reason.

Just my opinion.

4 or 5 tire rotation has been an ongoing argument for years
Of course when radials first came out was a big no-no to do a 5 tire since they would be running in a different direction.
Doing a 5 tire you get about 20% extra wear so say for example on the Duratracs I ran I would of gotten approximately 114,000 miles instead of the 95,000 I did with 4 tire rotation. I was going to buy a 5th ( they only had 4 in stock when I bought them since they were new to the market ) but never did get around to it.
Plus I generally want them to wear fast, hate running the same brand/tread/ size more than a year or so
But if asked always advise 5 tire

Wheels look decent.. some scuffs, and the aforementioned chips. Overall, not bad. Now just to wear through my current tires for an excuse to buy new ones!
