Please note.
These wheels WILL affect the handling of any car they are fitted to and not in a good way!
As they will most likely be HEAVIER than the wheels they are replacing they will not hold the road as well.
If you want performance you will have to go for Magnesium Alloy wheels.
Look at the tyre changes on F1, see how light the wheels are.
There's a reason for it.

These deals have been posted a fair few times in the last 18 months. Every time, the same arguments arise and unfortunately, people do still seem oblivious to the awful tyres that are slapped on for free.

Yes - they will handle more or less FINE in the warm and dry. Most budget tyres will let themselves down in the wet. There is no further info provided about the tyres, other than the basic specs.

£50 a corner for an alloy and the tyre? Let's say £25 for the alloy and tyre respectively. I'm pretty sure I would feel uncomfortable driving a car on any wheels that cost only £25 a corner, let alone rubber that cost the same. Even 'moderate' tyre brands will be a better choice than these.

And there is a good reason car manufacturers don't fit 'perfectly adequate' budget tyres to new cars. Think about that carefully before investing in these.

But plenty of people will still buy them regardless of what is said/written here. Your tyres are the only part in contact with the road - I'd personally like that contact to be as good as I can afford. Most people should budget for this when they buy a car so saying they (premium tyres) are too expensive is a poor excuse in my eyes and is potentially catastrophic.

Can you point me to a set of Magnesium Alloy Wheels for around this price please:thumbsup: I won't even ask for tyres!! LOL

On a serious note, you'll get what you pay for, a set of nice looking wheels WITH tyres, for about the price of a set of low to average quality tyres.

I've had sets like this from Halfords in the past and have been more than happy. These are great if you're just about to replace tyres on your car, so atleast you're getting your moneys worth.

But as I mentioned, surely the fact that four wheels plus tyres, equates to the cost of two middle of the road tyres sets alarm bells ringing? Or is it just me? My tyres are 225/40/18 and an average tyre fitted valved and balanced is £110. Add on £30 for a premium tyre.

Even my Fiesta that had 185/65/14 and they cost £65 a corner valved and balanced for a Pirelli P6000 (hardly stellar). Cheap tyres are a false economy in my experience. While these are certainly cheap and mag alloy are much more expensive, it doesn't detract from the fact that these are made very cheaply with cheap rubber.

The tyres wont be great but will have to be to british safety standard. A new budget tyre will out perform a warn top of the range tyre in the wet. So if all you do is sit in traffic on the way to work then these will be fine.
#12
Some VERY big name (italian) tyres are so poorly made that re-mould companies won't use them. This type of tyre was fitted to our fleet of high performance cars at work and they had to fit tyre bands to deal with the number of high speed deflations which never occurred with Michelins. There was some nervousness about EU law as the contract was large and it took some time before sense prevailed and we no longer used that brand.

The moral is that top brand isn't always a guarantee of quality.

So long as you understand what you are buying these are great value.

better off spending the £200 on a full service, or put it towards the costs of yer next car

IMO these instantly devalue any car they are put on

Hello - do you live in the real world?! Maganesium alloys. :roll: Your going to tell us next that you have a set fitted to your car...

Most folk wont notice the difference in weight on a small set of wheels like this. However how do you know they will be heavier than manufacturer fitted wheels of the same size - you dont yet you state it as if its a fact.

Personally I wouldn't ever drive on budget tyres no matter what car the car was - I value my safety to much.
#15
don't forget to inform your insurance Co., they'll love to hear you've got some new wheels.
#16
great price, heat added, but shame they are so ugly :( i want some RS racing or OZ racing or something similar at this price ! damn halfords that they dont put alloys on the trade card discount :(
#17

No such thing!
#18

Though most people buying these will be looking to improve the looks of their cars, rather than be buying for a performance upgrade....

Totally agree.

On topic >> Good tyres or not it's not a bad price for a set of alloys.

Off topic >>I can't comment on the brand of tyres used with these alloys but some cheapo tyres are just rebadged big names.

My brother is a mechanic and fitted some "coopers" to my girlfriends car, they stick like poo on a shovel. He wouldn't fit any old rubbish an said they compare favourably to many of the top names. I'd be inclined to agree

I on the other hand have some "admiral" tyres on my car (fitted when bought) and they are rubbish, esp. in the wet

So i think it's a gamble really, best to ask someone in the know if you have a friendly mechanic who doesn't try to rip you off.

and don't even get me started on bike tyres..
