    ALUMINUM CAR/TRUCK RIMS

    I have been going to many auctions and was wondering if it was worth bidding on aluminum rims. I constantly see Big Rig rims stacked on top of each other. They look aluminum. How much do you think theyde go for? Are they pure aluminum? Thanks.

    in the past I've gotten between .55 -.75 per pound .... but that was before the market crashed. check your local scrap yards what they'll do for you. Right now it's about .15 - .20 per pound best. That's for Aluminum ... the could also be steel .04 per pound..... good luck hope you can make some bucks!

    If they look Al. they are Al.
    Better still they are " Mag. alloy rims ". i.e. Magnesium Aluminium alloy for extra strength and are worth more than pure Al.

    Don't know if it's still the same today, We cleaned out a garage that had 7 semi rims stacked in the corner. My partner took em by a truck stop & got $200 apiece for them. With a handful of phone numbers in case we ran into more. Better than what we could've gotten for scrap. Doesn't hurt to ask.
    I know it's here, just need a bigger coil!

    I've tried other sites here on treasurenet.com and I'm going to try here one more time to see if anyone here knows how and where to sell low alpha lead; they use it in high-end computers. If there is no one that can help me, I promise I won't bring this subject up again here. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Figured that, just couldn't pass up the chance to be a smarty alec The Boogieman made me do it! (And if you remember that line welcome esteemed member of the ole farts club)

    Still think you'd get better prices selling them as a whole vs. scrap value.
