Well book is $17k-$18k. Cobras seem to hold their value better than book suggests from what I've seen. If he's offering for trade + $3k, maybe try to talk him down on the cash?

+1
I along with so many other people run 18x9/10. May go without saying, but make sure you get the proper offsest. If it says its for 99-04 Mustangs, its probably good.
