Stick them in here https://rangerovers.pub/topic/1983-the-place-for-sales-swaps-wants-offers-gifts-and-giveaways.

If you fail dismally at posting pictures (which seems to fool most people) either have a look at this https://rangerovers.pub/topic/1021-inserting-an-image-from-imgur or just put links in and I'll edit the post so they show up.

You really need to try getting a decent photo of all 4 wheels to stand much chance of getting a sale, all of yours are good for detail but don't show enough to grab much interest.

If you can get a pic of all 4 next to each other, it makes it much clearer for anyone browsing that its a set.

ebays hit and miss, but i do sell a fair bit on there from cars i've dismantled. It boils down to price and postage.

If your only offering collection, you instantly shrink your audience to a tiny fraction of what it was. As a result you then need to either wait for a long time for someone willing and local. Or you make it cheap enough that someones willing to travel for it.

Taking a quick look, several single Hurricane wheels have sold in the last month or two alone, so there is clearly some demand, suggesting that there was something "wrong" with your listing.

An auction with a high starting price isnt a great move, IMO. I tend to go one of two ways. If something is in fairly high demand, and i know it'll get bid up, i will list it as an auction for a 99p starting price. Gets folks in the door and interested, and so long as you've got a couple of interested parties bidding its going to sell for what its worth.

If somethings likely to be in low demand, ie where a 99p auctions going to end up with 1 bid, i will instead use a buy it now listing with offers enabled.

Also, do your research thru completed listings and figure out what your item is actually selling for. Theres no point listing it for £300 collection only if everyone else is selling them for £200 with free shipping.

In this case, theres also the unfortunate combination of good tyres, which should add value, but they are winters, and its May!
