These wheels will look the nutz on your car. Viv and Beauforty both have them and they look great. Try BMW although they will charge sky high prices.

Try EBAY mate?

Those wheels are always for sale in the classifieds. I know its expensive to ship overseas from the US, but with outrageous prices in the UK, you should still be able to save money.

especially if bought private and with the 1.99 exchange rate... !

Need to consider about 45 to 60 per wheel shipping though. You might be able to improve on this !

Love the 162 rims, make it look solid eh? And look relatively easy to keep clean.

I have seen the US classifieds they are so damn cheap as well, as you say even with shipping it would work out cheaper. Is there any difference in quality / safety etc?

nope they all come from the same place in germany (probably!) so I'd have a good look around then try and get prices for shipping.

As long as they are shipped as gifts for you, you'll pay no tax.

Will need to probably pay a handling charge that's it.

Hi Paul,

Still got my eye on them as I do like them. However, if they all needed refurbing say at 70 each then I am already at 530, plus a set of Falken 452s would set me back 350 + fitting. I am then nearly at 900 quid without fitting. Not that great a deal looking at it that way is it? Thats assuming they go for as near to the 250 they are at at the moment.

Im not the winning bidder at the mo, anyone on here bidding?
