That's actually a pretty good deal compared to what Bugatti is asking for a complete set.
It was only about two months ago when someone put up for sale a complete interior belonging to a Bugatti Veyron and now we’ve stumbled upon another eBay listing related to the W16 hypercar from Molsheim. This time around, it’s a complete wheel and tyre set you can have for a cool $100,000 (approx. £75,000 at the current exchange rate), which might sound ridiculously expensive, but let’s remember a fuel tank replacement is $42,000 (£33,250) and the quad turbos will set you back $21,800 (£17,100).
Getting back to the listing, the seller mentions these are entirely authentic OZ Racing wheels developed for the Bugatti Veyron and come wrapped in factory-spec Michelin tyres that still have 85 percent of tread left. The wheels have never been refurbished and appear to be in great condition, at least visually. The listing goes on to mention a full wheel + tyre set costs $150,000 (£114,000), which if true, it means prices have gone up in recent years.
Back in 2013, Michelin wanted $42,000 (£31,800) for a set of Veyron tyres as per a Motor Trend article, with each tire taking about an hour to make. As for the rims, these were available for $69,000 (£52,300), so doing the math, the hypercar’s shoes retailed for a hefty $111,000 (£84,100). Bear in mind the French tyre manufacturer says only two sets of tyres can be used before the wheels need to be replaced in order to guarantee the bead seal’s integrity when driving the Veyron at high speeds.
Not that many Veyron owners have this first-world problem, but the tyres only last for 15 minutes when the Chiron’s predecessor is driven at full tilt. As a matter of fact, you’d run out of petrol long before, with the 8.0-litre 16-cylinder quad turbo powerhouse depleting the fuel tank in just eight minutes.
The seller has a solid reputation on eBay, but shipping is restricted to the United States. The item is located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
