    Piss poor. So bad in fact, I'll give you $100 to take them off your hands so you no longer have to deal with the eyesores!! :D;)

    I'm.lookimg on my little phone screen so it's tough to tell, but I don't see and splits or dents, so I'd say super nice cruise night to show quality by my unofficial standards. But again, I can't see in detail. The super clean backs make me think its more toward the show grade though, they look fantastic!

    And the offer stands....:p haha

    Well I will give just a little more than the both of you. $150 final offer.

    Actually they aren't show pieces, think I see a very minor blemish in a couple, but don't see a dent or anything. So I would actually label them a little above driver quality.

    Of coarse I'm not referring to Jason Cook's driver beater either

    What shape are they in? That depends....It depends if I own them or your friend owns them! :D

    But seriously....damn Bob, they look near NOS to me. The backsides are clean as a whistle.

    Well they have been sealed up in a box for a number of years just like the rest of my parts. I mean my friends parts

    My question would be, if they are really near-nos condition, it seems you wouldn't be asking here what WE think the condition is? How about telling us what you see as far as any defects? Pictures hardly ever show good enough detail to make finer determinations.

    If this were an auction site... I'd bump it to $155 :)

    Judging by the comments so far they look like your "freind " won't need to start a thread in the parts for sale section

    They barely look good enough to catch drips under car. I'll offer $200, much more than the scrap man will give you......

    The reason I ask what condition these would be considered is because I have seen extremely nice ones called driver and then I have seen what I would classify as average ones called very nice. And at this point I have not offered them up for sale.

    Years ago I had several sets that were dealer take-offs when customer wanted full wheel covers, and they looked like yours: clean front and back with black paint in excellent condition and no road rash.

    'Excellent used', or 'near new'.
    You would need to better describe the condition of the chrome since the pics can't show it well enough.... whether there are micro scratches from cleaning/polishing, spider-web cracks, spotting, or fading.
    Were these made of chromed stainless?

    The term 'driver quality' is useless as it can apply to something that varies from rat-rod quality to something that is just below concours-show quality.

    I would venture to say they look pretty dang near new. Venture to say that the person who sold them to you would probably buy them back

    Show a used item to 5 different individuals and you will get 3-4 different responses to the question. Yes, they look nice in the pictures, but countless members here have been fooled by good pictures of used parts only to be disappointed in what they ended up with in their hands. One man's treasure is another man's junk. That's all I'm saying, really.
