need new wheels

Sadly yesterday a pot hole on the edge of a roundabout cost me a rim...

Was about to change the two front tires on my GT, but now that I have to replace a badly bent rim, I'm thinking I may as well replace another slightly bent rim also, though that is on the back at the moment. Dealer says Dh2750 each (18").

There's a couple of places in Abu Dhabi that'll do tyres for under Dh1000 each, but I have no idea about rims...

Any suggestions on where to get reasonably priced wheels in the UAE?

If you have genuine alfa wheels then you will not find them here, Autolusso, ebay uk- germany
have many a selection for around 1500 Aed max thats for a new telidial much less for other rims.
Send them to your Uk aramex Account, quite often delivery to uk free, UK-UAE - 100 AED KG shop-n-ship

I had to get a replacement GTA wheel from Autolusso and it was not cheap to buy second hand or ship. Got one very slightly bent wheel if you want it.

By airfreight, courier, Aramex etc it will cost a huge amount to send a wheel from the UK, they are about 10+kgs each.

When I bought my GTA wheels, I bought them in Italy and had them shipped by sea freight to Qatar - this was the cheapest option as you're not paying for weight. I had them fit good tyres to them too before shipping. I also bought a 5th wheel in case one ever got damaged.

I recently bought wishbones, brake discs etc from Autolusso and had them shipped out, about 25kgs weight cost around 1000AED.

Hi Mossawi,

Or you could go for a set of OZ WRC or Leggera's which would look good on it, speak to Motorsport Wheels in Dubai (MSW)..I was quoted AED6K for a set....

Alternatively check with Hussain/Saadiq at Al Ahli....he has access to parts, but his prices are a little high, he knows the parts are expensive to ship....

Hey Anton,

Not sure if you're still looking for a set of wheels, but these (used) ones seem to be in good condition and well priced. Not sure how much shipping would be though, but it's a set of 4.

few weeks ago I repaired my rims at Sharjah.
Place is called Deba Engineering.
Go to Double Cola/1st industrial st, take right turn when you see Mitsubishi dealer.

Quality is good compared to the price.
They charge between 100-200 per wheel depends on the condition.
The only downside they did not do the repaint.
Only took them 3 hours to do my 4 rims.
