Too much!

The bidding just doesn’t stop

SSR Mk. III in 14×10 & 12″, gorgeous!

I’ll tell, I had my heart set on these, found them with the highest bid at 65,000JPY, I thought sweet, they won’t go for too much more than that surely! So I got a pal in Japan to bid for me, little did we know how the bids would skyrocket. I set a limit, which I thought was reasonable, it went past that, so did we. It went waaay past that and continues to right now! As I type its passing 150,000JPY, which after shipping and a small commission, shit, I don’t even wanna do the math. It’s depressing!

Now it’s almost 2AM, I have to get up at 6:30, I’ve waited up long enough to see what they go for. HERE is the auction link for me to check in the morning haha.

Wish me better luck for next time, hopefully I can find a bargain….

Might be more realistic and look for 14x 9″s and 10″s,

As if there’s a market for 14x12s if I wanted to resell !!

    Right, they went for 163,000 JPY, about an hour of auto-extend in there!

    So 163,000 + 10% commission + 20,000 shipping makes almost 200,000JPY, which would end up at around…

    $3,300 NZ, that’s almost doable!!

      Awesome tyres!!

      I’ll keep an eye on them eh, but I imagine they’ll go for a bit too. Kinda decided I’ll go for the widest I can fit under stock body (rolled to fuck guards) so 11s would be pushing it for the rear haha. And have decided also I need a matching set.

      I’ll just see what happens, if I’m not buying it’s still money in the bank. :D
