Bugatti Veyron Wheels And Tires Cost More Than Your Car


You can currently buy a complete set on eBay, for a small fortune.

It wasn't long ago when someone put a complete Bugatti Veyron interior up for sale on eBay for a whopping $149,999. At the time of writing, the auction is still live with a reduced price of $139,999 if you happen to be looking for a plush Veyron interior. Now, someone else has listed a complete set of wheels and tires belonging to a Bugatti Veyron. At this rate, it probably won't be long until the engine, gearbox, and bodyshell get listed so you can assemble your own dream Veyron.

Unsurprisingly, Bugatti Veyron wheels and tires don't come cheap - the complete Veyron shoe set is listed for sale on eBay for $100,000. That may sound astronomically expensive and probably costs more than your car, but this is small change for the average Veyron owner. Replacement parts are notoriously expensive - it costs $42,000 just to replace the fuel tank.

According to the sale listing, the wheels are authentic OZ Racing wheels developed for the Bugatti Veyron wrapped in factory-spec Michelin tires that still have 85 percent of tread left. The wheels have never been refurbished and still appear to be in great condition. Buying a replacement wheel and tire set directly from Bugatti will set you back $150,000 according to the seller, so you are saving a lot of money. The item is located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and shipping is restricted to the US.

Each tire takes around an hour to make, and Michelin advises that only two sets of tires can be used before the wheels need to be replaced to guarantee the bead seal's integrity when driving the Veyron at high speeds. It's a hard life being a Bugatti Veyron owner.

Don't expect these tires to last long if you hammer the throttle, however. When driven at top speed, Michelin says the tires only last for 15 minutes, although technically you would run out of gas before then as the thirsty 8.0-cylinder quad turbo gobbles up a whole tank of fuel in just eight minutes.
