People looking to sell used rims can post classified ads on Craigslist, eBay Motors and other popular websites for classified ads and auctions. Some websites, such as Sell My Tires, focus exclusively on rims and tires.

Craigslist allows people to post ads for free, and its large user base makes it a popular option. Auction websites, including eBay Motors, often allow sellers to place ads for free but charge after the rims are sold. Another option to consider when selling custom vehicle rims is contacting local car customization shops to see if any are interested. Selling to a shop might result in a lower sales price, but the money lost might be worth it for convenience.

The biggest advantage to selling car rims privately is that the seller is likely to receive a higher payout for the product. However, selling privately requires a greater time investment and no guarantee of price or an actual sale. As such, many owners choose to sell to a reseller because they offer standardized rates and it requires minimal effort.
