They are worth as much as someone is wiling to pay.

Would it be obvious if there were cracks? Presume it would need tyres off?

You can usually find them on the inside rims of the rear wheels, no need for tyres off.

I’ve seen it on this forum that 326M are notoriously prone to cracks. Last couple of sets have been advertised for 750-800 with good tyres, or 350 without. It’s a fussy bunch. You may do better on fleabay. Potenza runflats aren’t generally seen as a plus point.

Thanks both
I will check them over - car came from a main dealer although I know that guarantees nothing
Keen to get rid of the runflats but can't bear to bin tyres with 6mm on
I wonder how much of the cracking is caused by the tyres?

FWIW, I had a set of 326Ms in VGC bar one very small kerb dent in one wheel with Bridgestone RF also in VGC.

Consensus at the time was £700 ish (April 2018)..

I got £1,350 on eBay.

Some folks are desperate to get hold of these so the horror stories don’t put some off.

Changing tyres without going to a higher profile doesn’t seem to save them from cracking...

ebay really is a decent place to sell... 10 day auction, end it at a sensible time (ie 8 or 9pm on a weekday evening). and then put a decent item description, cover all possible bases there and put a honest description with good pictures. and then you should, theoretically, get what the item is really worth.

Though i would perhaps wait until lockdown restrictions regarding the 'stay at home' bit are eased, which appears to be until 29th March.

Thanks - Sunday night is always my go to option for ending a 10 day auction - have sold a lot on ebay over the years but not car stuff - will give it a whirl

i'm pretty sure you can post an ebay link on this forum too so by all means do that as well. the final buyer may still turn out to be from this forum, but ebay will be a far wider market.

only problem with ebay is dealing with the lowball, buy it now chancers... :roll:
