    Default Value of Dymag wheels

    I have been off this site for quite awhile and I have just come across some first design Dymags .These are powercoated white and say dymag on one spoke and corvette on another(I know they didn't come on Callaways). Minimal chips on the wheels. What are they now worth?The guy I got them from said they were off a 90' Challenge car.

    I guess they are worthless (no response),so I passed on them.

    I doubt they're worthless... apparently no one has any idea. I know I don't.

    Have you thought of posting the info in the Challenge car forum? Someone may have an idea of their value, or if they're restoring a CC they may even be interested in them.

    BTW... this CC owner could probably answer your questions if you send him a PM:

    Are you buying or selling? As soon as you said they were white, I thought to myself "Challenge Corvette". If you are selling, "they aren't worth anything" you'd better ship them off to me so I can get rid of them for you. All joking aside, they are probably worth quite a few dollars. I wouldn't begin to to try and price them myself, but rest assured, they a worth a few bucks.

    If they need refinishing, about $1200-$1500 a set - $1500-$2000 if they're ready to go. A set went for $1k at this year's carlisle. A set went without bids on ebay recently for $1800 and sold off auction for somewhere north of $1500. That should give you some idea.

    I am interested if you decide to pass on them.

    There was only one(I believe) Callaway TT produced with the white Dymags. if you can prove they were from a Callaway and not a Challenge car, they would be worth even MORE ! I do know that Reeves would NOT sell any of the Dymags that were laying around the shop. Must mean something.........

    There was just a set of GENI dymags with Callaway cast into the spokes on ebay last week. Corvette Mike, Anaheim had them listed several times. I believe they sold for under $2k. They were restored.

    WHile Dymags are rare these days. They are fairly hard to sell for big dollars. I just sold a set of GENI's all 17x9.5 for $2k. They need stripped and painted. Not too many people paying $4k for a set restored, even though they are very hard to find.

    That's good to know. I figured that they finally sold since they weren't listed again. I have bought and sold a few sets now and I just don't see anyone paying the big prices for Dymags. I'd be glad to sell a set for $8k but I can't see it happening.

    I'm keeping my future sets anyway. Probably won't buy too many more sets either.

    The Challenge Dymags you sold, were "sold well" at the price listed. Callaway Dymags, even though a similar style, have traditionally bought more money than the others.

    As far as what to do with spare Dymags...

    Check out this pic from the COG site:

    They did sell but your correct the asking price was $8K. They sold for a bit less. As we know, not alot of real good sets available.
