Where to buy 17" alloy wheels for a 147 in Dublin

Hello guys,
Apparently my alloy has gone bust, I will need a new one.
problem is, I have no clue where to get one!
What I am sure of is: the dealer will have new ones and it will cost an arm and a leg to buy it..

So the million dollar question is: Got any clue where I can buy used alloys in Dublin?, just like the one in the attached picture for a decent enough price? Anywhere around Dublin would be fine..
Buying online is also an option if you can recomend a decent good website!

Thanks for your help lads!

Gonna hijack this thread if you don't mind - looking for an OEM set of 17" or 18" Alfa alloys for a GT.

Don't mind used and getting them refurbished. Does anyone know if there is any for sale. Seached gumtree and donedeal with no luck.

Currently have the 16" castors and its just not big enough! Thanks.

Why do I get the feeling youve spotted a car you like and you already picked the wheels you ate going to put on it!

You know me too well!

Yep. Have a 156 that i got checked out yesterday by an indie in the UK. Low mileage, a heap of history. Zender kit on it.

Picked out these bad boys for it:

They look cool alloys but I would think they'll be biatch to keep clean, Damiens BBS on the 156 have so many nooks and crannies they take a toothbrush to clean , but they look soo cool Hopefully the car will be the one , youve been looking for a while . V6 ?

Given nobody has answered your question I'll try. EBAY is always a guarantee but you might find the best thing to do is get in touch with a few of the breakers, I have often picked up stuff from them, you'd be surprised at how cheap good bits can be. A breakers I'd recommend are Summerhill Spares off the Malahide road at Coolock otherwise on the Naas and Greenhills roads have planty of breakers yards. You could also try EBSpares.co.uk and micksgarage.ie. Also try ringing Kevin McBride in the the parts department of Donohoes garage on the Kylemore road or Gerry in Ti Autos 018386567 as they both will know of stuff knocking around for cheap.

Dont bend the rules, Rule the bends
