Callaway-Bridgestone Run Flats

Post by Arctic91 »

With so few data points available, it's hard to determine a value for these wheels. Does anyone have an idea of what a fair price would be for a full set in very good condition, with Bridgestone center caps? Has anyone found a set for sale and do you have a link or remember the asking price? Thanks!

Cheers,
Scott

I’ve seen them sell for $1200-2500...really only have value to a Callaway owner so it just depends how bad you want them.

They look great but weigh a ton.

Thanks! I've never seen any for sale and that at least gives me an idea of probable value. I agree that the demand may be restricted to a limited number of Callaway owners, though.

I’ve only seen one set of Run Flat wheels for sale in the last 10 years.

Our COG buddy in the Netherlands (Jeroen) sent me an email about 10 years ago about a set of RF wheels for sale on Craigslist. They were literally 3 miles from my house in south Florida.

I had seen this same set of wheels on a regular C4 Corvette at a local car show around 2005 and wondered at the time “how the heck did they get on that car??”. The wheels had been “chromed” but were the real deal.

Fast forward to 2009(?) and these wheels are now for sale. I raced to the seller and bought the set for $500 and they now sit in my warehouse waiting to get refinished some day.

Pretty cool that a COG buddy 3,000 miles away tells me about set of rare Callaway wheels for sale just 3 miles away!

Thanks again Jeroen! :beer .

I have a chromed set I planned to deplate and refinish one day. Also found and bought a set of correct center caps. As they sit, I would sell them for about the money Kingforward paid for his.

I'm not looking to buy another set, just gauging value of the set that I do have and wondering if I should remove them for safekeeping instead of continuing to use them on a daily basis. Seems like a good price if someone is looking for a set, though.

Logged in to the COG for the first time in QUITE awhile and was surprised to see this discussion. I actually own the Bridgestone Run Flat Twins and possess 2 extra, full sets of wheels for my babies. They are currently "hanging heavy" in my pole barn but I am not certain (off the top of my head) what center caps they have. Never posted them for sale but.... you never know! I have, however been thinking of selling my 1966 427 if anyone is interested!!
