Good buy??

well i ran across this smashed up 5th gen the other day an it has cross drilled rotors and these rims on it

American Racing 866791 - American Racing Type SR Euro Silver Wheels - Overview - SummitRacing.com

i called the guy an he is selling me the rotors, rims with tires, an the rear oem tail lights all for $550. the rims are in good shape, rotors have a little bit of surface rust, and the tail lights are in excellent condition. he is junking the car tomorrow morning thats why i jumped at it an went ahead an agreed to buy them, but i really wished i could of looked at the rotors better and asked you guys about it first. but if it turns out bad i guess ill learn my lesson not to buy so quickly. anyways do you guys think thats a good deal?
