Picking up my new ace sp today and have been thinking of switching the stock aluminum wheels and tires for something more my style. Anyone have any idea how much I could get for them. They are really sweet but I am more into black wheels

A lot of that depends on whether you can find a local buyer.
Shipping something that big and heavy is more expensive for us pee-ons that don't have bulk shipping agreements than you might think.
If you take the wheels and tires off before they touch dirt, and are therefore immaculate take-offs, I would expect to get around $500 for the set.
That is of course less than their replacement value, but nobody pays new prices for take-offs. There's no motivation to do so.

Scoundrel thanks for reply. After picking up the ace and staring at it for a bit I have to say it really looks good the way it is. The stock rims kind of grew on me. I have another question, when you first got your Ace did it feel ultra tight. I drove around in the lot for like 2 min and I felt like when I gave it throttle it wasn't extremely responsive.i am hoping once it's broken in it feels a bit more responsive. I used to have a Yamaha banshee that kept me on my feet leaning over the bars to keep the nose down.

break in will help for sure. The Ace also has a fairly heavy throttle pedal return spring, can take some getting use to.
2 must do items that will help in my opinion:
check(fix) front end alignment(toe)
grease suspension properly

The 330 is a little sluggish to "spin up" in high gear until it finishes break-in, and then it "wakes up" quite a bit. The 570 should be less so, but that may be what you are feeling.
If you're judging the ACE compared to a Banshee, it's going to feel sluggish, period.

However, you might also be looking at a toe-in adjustment problem. If one wheel is way out, that would make it unresponsive.
Many people reported wrong toe-in settings from the factory, and in some cases, it really ran like a slug until they straightened it out.

Check out this thread. You can get a really good look at the alignment with just a piece of string, couple of jack stands, and a tape measure. If it's really bad, it will be super obvious.

Thank you for the advice guys, you all have been extremely helpful. I will take a look at the alignment this weekend and a good once over with my grease gun.

My 330 engine "woke up" after about 30 hours and was much more responsive. I also got a performance boost after I set the toe out. The toe out on both my front wheels were out of spec over 1/2 inch. My front tires were literally sliding sideways when I drove. I not only noticed a performance difference after setting the toe out but it steered much easier.

Ace......my 570 woke up at about 13 hours, and when it woke up it was very noticeable
