@Bob259, might want to seriously consider that price.

Best of Luck with your sale

Really? Show me one. I’ll purchase now
All sold out! Maybe a unique situation but I purchased a new/like new RTL-E wheel for a spare on the ROC Trading Post for $50 shipped. So the deals are out there. Hubcap Haven offers 2020 wheels for $230 shipped (BE wheels for $194 shipped).

The 2017-2019 wheels will be less expensive than the brand new 2020's, even though they are the same design.

Will be? Should be? Are? Please explain why the same wheel "will be" less expensive, and if it isn't the free market that decides the worth, then what is it?

The free market absolutely decides the value and it only takes one buyer to make a deal. The new 2020 wheels have much lower availability than the 4 calendar years of the first G2 wheels. I don't think anyone is complaining about the price the OP wants for the wheels, they want him to be able to get them sold.

I personally purchased a nearly new set of 2017 RTL-E wheels for $200, which is considerably less than I paid for new set of 2020 RTL- E wheels.

I guess what I was getting at is that being newer doesn't necessarily make them better or more desirable, but I take your point that scarcity does drive up the price. Personally I don't like the gray painted wheels, although some people might, and some people might want them just because they come on the new RTL-E, and so they mean "higher trim level" to some people.
I am not rooting for or against the seller btw. I hope both he and the eventual buyer get what they feel is a satisfactory deal.

If only you lived in NJ... I wont do the shipping thing. This is the wheel I want, and the price is fine!
