    Default found original walky rims

    hey guyz, i was down at the local rim shop looking at sum new rims for my vl and the guy said he had some original vl walkingshaw rims for $1000 with semi-new tyres. they are still original paint with 1 or 2 scratches or the front left rim was just wondering if they are worth it as a collector thing?
    oh and they r originals as they have the serial number and the momo logo stamped on them.

    The rims arnt as rare as people think, they pop up on ebay all the time, and going on the prices ive seen on ebay 1k seems a bit much, you can still buy em new from holden as well, a dealer here in adelaide has some on display, cant remember the price though. If you were going to fit em to your car, then its probably worth it, if not, i cant see them appreciating in value very much to make it worthwhile.

    Thats right they aint rare. They were first fitted to the Walky hence why they are know as that, but they were fitted to alot of the lower spec VN and VP HSV's aswell.
    After all they are a 15 year old 16" rim.......how much does he expect to get? Offer him $500

    hey, a couple of months ago i was told walky rims go for around the 3k mark as they were "supposively" rare and all as soon as i saw them for 1k i kinda jumped to conclusions + the guy at the shop said that they were a very very good investment. nd soz i ment FR18's not FR19's
