Thanks for that, I wasn't entirely sure how ebay worked
My observation was intended to demonstrate that if
a good set of second hand wheels can be found for the right price then it's not too daunting a purchase.
There's no doubting those are great
prices for a set of new wheels
If I needed them, I'd be on the 'phone tomorrow with the wife's credit card numbers
Even at £696 (or £522) for four wheels the cost of tyres on top is going to be around
the £500 mark so that's still over a grand which is undeniably a chunk of cash to most mortals just before the festive season - or at any time, for that matter.
A set of s/h alloys (say for £250) plus the cost of tyres is a lot more palatable at around £750, especially for winter use. Get the right auction, could be a lot cheaper.
@ benzinahead: The offer of those 19" winter tyres seems too good to pass up.......
The 159 17" Lusso (?) wheels a friend of mine has are indeed still available (cheap, with Michelin non-winter tyres) but are in Merseyside.
