Does seem a good deal.

Tires on my saxo (cheapest ones) are £25 but it depends what tyres are on these wheels ("Silverstone" in the pic). Even so, £100 for four tyres and £100 for wheels is a good deal.

I *think* these should fit Citroen Saxo, Peugeot 106 and similar!

Yes, they are Silverstone tyres in the picture, so thats what you should get;-)

thanks for the reply

These will fit Ford/Vauxhall. Don't think they will fit Peugeot because of the offset (should be around 15-20 on peugeot).

Oh and £25 delivery but still a **** hot price, nice looking wheels too.

No worries matey, left you some rep as well as its a good deal. S/H really is a mugs game these days. People buy alloys, wear the tyres down and sell them for nearly what they paid for them on fleabay PMSL.

What does rep do?

I got my wheels from here

Yep. Just noticed they don't have the ones you posted but as it shows the other types that are available (possibly cheaper than shown in the pic), thought I would post it anyway.

Can't reserve online, had to call a couple of stores but found some eventually. Perfect for the gfs car, thanks.

It's worth noting that you'll pay more for insurance putting these alloys on.

HTH.
#17
make sure you let your insurers know, some companies may not insure you at all if you 'modify' your car.

last thing you want is a claim kicked out because you stuck a £200 set of alloys on and didn't tell them!:thumbsup:
#18
Don't forget some of these alloy wheels don't have as much strengh as steel ones or original manufacturers alloys look how much metal is actually supporting your car. The insurance may not payout if your car is stolen, unless they have agreed to you fitting them, it makes the car a higher risk. like the folks have already said check your purchase with your insurance company first, same goes with any modification to your car. They are not looking to payout but why they don't have to.

Years ago I fitted a sunroof kit to an old astra, when renewing my insurance I put it down as a modification , they wanted a full engineers report not just an MOT so I just sold the car it was more trouble that it was worth. My insurance broker told me they would have probably used it as an excuse if someone was injured in the car not too pay up. even cosmetic changes can be a problem it gives them an excuse to say the car was more likely to be stolen. Keep them standard, if you want nice alloys buy a car with them as standard.
#19
Hi Mysti
when the car comes standard with alloys are the wheels any sronger?
Are alloy wheels weaker?
I have done a fair bit of racing and we all use alloy wheels!
Thanks for your imput.

#20
I'm no expert, but some aftermarket wheels are very flimsy and will buckle. Some alloy wheels are very strong and fine for their intended purpose. The wheels on my old toyota celica are almost solid aluminium not thin little spokes like some and I have every confidence in them. You don't always get what you pay for, some are made to sell and will not last.
#21
Well I drive a modded car and my insurance is about £230FC which is actually LESS than the ******s wanted for a slightly newer standard one, same model. As to the strength of alloys, there is some truth. BSA wheels for example would most likely survive on military vehicle (as I proved thanks to 88mph and a patch of black ice in a bend a few years ago. BTTF lol) whereas some of the cheapy cheap wheels use cheap metal that either fractures or is full of tiny holes. Fwiw i've not heard bad things about ripspeed wheels and I wouldn't have any hesitation in putting a set on one of my cars, if they were 16" that is :lol:

Regarding insurance, you're probably only looking at £20-50 increase in premium. That's if you're unlucky enough to be with an insurer that charges for wheels. It is a bit cheeky on their part as they always state 'we'll insure them for xx extra but if they get nicked we'll only replace them with standard'.
banned#22
Some of the replies about alloy wheels really are a joke. All alloy wheels and aftermarket parts sold in this country have to be manufactured to a certain standard. Do you really believe that Halfords would sell an unsafe item? They would be hammered something rotten by the courts if some poor sod came to their grief with a set of dodgy alloys. Their business would cease to exist. I for one think their alloys are naff but I certainly would rather buy from them than buy some set of perhaps dodgy second hand wheels of unknown origin.

Yes true but atleast you have declaired them and they can't argue with that.

Its Buyer beware with wheels and Insurance Companys, If you have a standard car no problems.

A friend of mine was in a legal dispute about a car accident (not his fault by the way) and the Barrister in court made out it was his fault because he serviced his car himself. He asked him what the chemistry of brake fluid was to make him look an idiot. this had nothing to do with the accident and even a trained mechanic would only know the very basics of the chemistry of brake fluid. you just use it as per the instructions on the bottle.

What I'm saying is dont give the twisters anything to find fault with or it may come back and bite you.

I had some 100+ (Team Dynamics) alloys that Halfords sold and within 2 days 1 of them was unusable due to hitting large water filled pot-hole. Tried claiming it back through council etc but no luck. I ended up having to buy a replacement alloy because it was buckled beyone repair. Changed the whole set about a year later to some RSGT alloys and have hit some bigger pot holes (great British roads) and these have had no problems. Had them on for 3 years without any issues.

This isnt a rant against Halfords, as they didnt make them, however my alloys were the cheaper end of the market, and they didnt last.

Oh, and yes they are a Ford/Vauxhall fitment. Wont fit peugeot 106/citroen saxo etc as they have 3 wheel nuts and these have a pattern to take 4. Dont let Halfords talk you into saying they'll fit a focus either. They have the focus on their books as being ET38, whereas it needs to be between 42 and 49 otherwise they catch. Also.....they'll just look silly on a focus being 15".
#25
And likewise Focus wheels won't fit on earlier fords as they tend to fouls the suspension.... Which is most likely what the wheels in this post would do if fitted to an early peugeot.

The only time I have had a problem with my wheels was when I have hit a pot hole. Really does not matter if they are original fit or after market wheels. They are all made by a group of wheel manufacturers. You really cannot generalise about this issue. So if you hit a pot hole and the wheel is damaged, it must be the fault of the wheel manufacturer. Perhaps, it might be the pot hole at fault or even the plonker at the wheel.

I'm not saying that they are unsafe just that some wheels are flimsy for their purpose and buckle in everyday use. Its a fact. Halfords will do what all suppliers do and balance profit against possible losses due to claims. These wheels will not fall off but may not be as strong as 0riginal fitment ones in some cases. like I said just look at how much metal is in the construction on some. I know what I would spend my money on.
#28
Cheap wheels are not inherently unsafe. But it's like buying sirloin and stewing steak. If you buy expensive wheels they WILL be stronger and last longer, but on the downside they tend to be a lot heavier. Lets be honest, these cheap wheels are aimed a macdonalds working wannabe boy/girl racers with 1l corsas etc so they're harldy going to be put under the same stress as a high powered heavy beast of a car.

Hi,

Will these fit a Vauxhall Vectra (x-Reg) with wheel size 195x65x15 or do they have to be 195x50x15?

Not to sure about tyre/alloy wheel sizing.

But the point is 'original fitment' wheels are probably manufactured by the same manufacturer as the after market wheels. Some people really are very gullible. '
Cos I spent loads of money on my car, it will be the dogs boll...s and everything in my car will be better'.
This is so much rubbish. My only alloy wheel problems have come with original fit Renault and Volvo alloys.

I really hope you're not saying I'm a plonker behind the wheel.........I really dont. :x

What I was saying is that I had one bang with the wheels and was was knackered. The set I have on now have lasted for 3 years despite taking hits from pot holes that I reckon are worse than the ones that damaged the first set. It wasnt a generalisation about all alloy wheels, it was just a post explaining my experience. Wish I hadnt bothered now.
#34
Not quite. My 100+ 17" set were about £599 with tyres.

My new set were £659, 18" with toyo tyres.

Salesmen hate me. If I want to buy something, I research it fully online to make sure I get the best product at the best price, which I'm sure is what alot of people do that use this website.

Some of you guys really are a bunch of tossers. I have tried to engage in a sensible discussion about the merits of spending money on alloy wheels. Seems some of you guys are of the belief that if you spend loads of money on manufacturer supplied alloys then you will have the very 'best' of wheels. Salesmen must love you, they can see you coming from a mile off, and rub their hands with glee at the prospect of taking loads of money from you.

I think you should look in the mirror first. Some Aftermarket wheels are cheap and nasty full stop. Most if not all wheels supplied by major car manufacurers are of High Quality 99 % of the time and on most midrange and higher are now standard fitment not added to some base model later so no commision applies to sales staff. All Facts.

Matt, certainly was not having a go at you. I am only making comment at how naive some of the people are who are commenting on this thread.
My present car is a new Fiat Grande Punto and the alloys are ****. This is a well known problem with the new Grande Punto, they are covered in corosion after only a few months. Many owners are having their wheels replaced under warranty.

Was that a response to my query fiddler? Just out of interest...what is the difference between 50 and 65 for these 15" wheels? Is it their width?

It's the profile (height). Going from 65 > 50 will mean a quicker takeoff but lower top end and higher fuel consumption. Not really recommended. Oh and it'll throw your speedo out:thumbsup:

Not recomended.

For a start the wheels will look too small on your car due to the lower profile tyres.

Your speedo will over read 10% more than it does now, so if your if your speedo already reads 10% over with standard tyres and wheels, it would now read 20% over.

At 70MPH your speedo would actually read 84MPH :whistling:
