Exchange OEM wheels for aftermarket wheels

Can anyone recommend somwhere, where I could exchange my OEM mv4 alloys for an aftermarket wheel.

I know BMAutosport is one of them, but they have offered 400 for my wheels

Or is that reasonable?

I'm thinking of swapping them with staggered 18" LRN BLITZ IN BLACK WITH POLISHED DISH with Falken tyres.

Putting them up for sale not an option? they seem to go for decent money on Ebay.

They are powder coated in RED at the moment, I doubt I will have many interest on it so it will need a refurb, which will cost another 200-300?

Would prefer to just exchange them, but I may have to consider the refurb -> sell privately route.

Mstyle will do trade on wheels.
Obviously trading in wheels means you will take a hit... but at least you don't have the troubles of someone coming back and complaining if there is a crack etc...

Plus they do well priced wheels etc...
And ever 12 Months Finance with NO INTEREST to sweeten the deal

Yepp I have tried him based on your recommendation from another post and quoted me 400

The wheels I want, 18" LRN BLITZ IN BLACK WITH POLISHED DISH, are on his website at 499 + some Falken tyres around 450

Thanks Josh, I gave Tony a call he asked me to send him an email with pics of the wheels and tyre details. Will do that later on today and see what he comes back with...

No interest finance deal does seem like a sweet deal, I'll probably end up buying loaaaadz of other stuff too

I may consider 19s but since fitting H&R springs the ride has gone abit rough, so downgrading to 18s will hopefully make it a little better and that's the only reason I've been thinking 18s

hmmm...fair point - but 19s do fit really well especially with the drop you get from the HRs!

id not rule out the 19s dude - think about it

im pretty sure a few members on here, Gaza included are running HRs with 19s and seem pretty happy, might be worth asking for opinions before you actually buy the wheels if you're unsure

Thank you all for your inputs, I ended up going to BMAutosport and part exchanged my wheels with these, thanks Sumil


Mark was very helpful and got a fair deal from him, would definitely recommend BMAutosport

Ended up going for the 18s. Definitely a much softer ride now, so worth the compromise for me
