oz wheels on ebay

Recommended Posts

It only looks like kerb damage to on rim that can be welded and shaped, fair point about the seals. Acid is fine on alloy though. Blasting can etch the metal. I got a full set of used centres at SWLC £30 each pp. Gotta speculate or be ready to spend £1500-£2000 on a mint set. IMO.

Ram air, uprated fuel pump, silicone hoses through out, wheels refurbed and powder coated,much more, all maintenance.

I cant see these anywhere? I looked for lotus wheels, esprit wheels etc etc.

I agree you have to take a risk if you don't wanna pay big bucks for the right set, I'm after some standard s4 wheels and tyres one day but justifying £700-£1000 for wheels and tyres is tough when

my car is fine on its standard wheels, best spent on it's next cambelt and a year's insurance, however if we hadn't just had a baby last year Im sure they'd be on by now ha ha

Strange I had the filter on for UK only, once Un ticked they came up? I guess someone's moved Doncaster ha ha

If you got some damaged wheels cheap enough you could always look at new outer rims to fit them?

The new prices for these are £815 each for the fronts and and £1020 each for the rears, that's £3,670 for a set of 4. When something is out of production and in demand, prices often go up rather than down. Supply/demand.

 

No offence but £500 and a watch you don't like isn't going to get these wheels of a chap with the best part of £100k's worth of Sunday cars in his garage mate.

Probably best to hold off on offers until I've posted some pics up, watches, cheeseburgers or otherwise! 

 

I'm only after whatever a fair price is. I've haven't recieved one of those lately so it would be a novelty!

 

Bibs is correct but it's because of my Lotus problem that I can't afford to sell them too cheap!

Too right Bibs,  £562.00 for the 4 wheels I nicked on ebay. Remember chaps, an engineer made these products and a good engineer can put them back into pristine condition. I may be a plumber now but I was a toolmaker for 10 years. Getting the wheels back into top shape is piece of............cake.

I wasn't making fun of you Alex, it's always up to the seller to decide what a fair offer is. I was just messing around. Sorry if I offended you!

Did all the dismantle and repairs myself to the kerbed rims. Then soaked all the painted bolts in paint stripper and the rusty nuts in spirits of salts to remove the rust. Painted the nuts with alloy paint. The rims are mirror finish powder coat which hides the welding and the rest is standard silver powder coat. Got the centres from SWLC. had 2 good tyres on the rear and have ordered 2 new fronts which will be in on Friday. Got new chrome valves to fit. I am really pleased with the outcome and by the time I have fitted them it will stand me in about £1200 which I think is a bargain for these wheels.

I have a set of pristine black powder coated S4/GT3 wheels with centres and legal tyres for sale as well so whatever I get for those is a bonus as well.

Overall well pleased Andy.

I'm doing my set for summer wheels only because there going to be very polished and I'll use the monoborings for winter

Hey Alex glad you got the wheels you wanted. We're they the other set I flagged up to you on EBay.

With my wheels the picture is a bit deceptive. The rims are mirror finish powder coat not polished. The bottom picture is a more true representation of the colour. The hub is standard silver. I'm really happy with the whole finish.
