What should I do, where do I stand? eBay question:P

Bought a wheel from eBay for a lot of money and this is how it was described:

here we have a 18" alloy penta sri zaf astra alloy and nearly new tyre 6mm tread 5 stud no centre cap be quick sort after uk bidders only

Now the wheel arrived today and it has clearly been refurbed badly its not even the same colour as my original wheels! To add further insult to injury theres a nail in the tyre!

What should I do?

What did the seller say about your complaint ?

File a SNAD, be warned though paypal/ebay will only refund original cost and postage, they will not enforce the refunding of return postage to the seller, you may loose this,

As tinks said,a Paypal dispute if the seller won't play ball,but send them a calm message stating that the wheel isn't in great condition,don't demand anything,be polite and see what they have to say first,good luck.

You should have asked these questions before buying :lol:
#14
I see the seller is a newbie and the listing is hardly detailed but sending it with a nail in is just a pee take!!
#15
Don't feed the trolls.

Just do what Tinks said, file a SNAD, wait till Ebay tell you to return and make sure you return via trackable method. You will lose the cost of return postage though.

Just noticed somebody offered £300 for 1 wheel and tyre. Crazy.

Yeah but £300 for an Astra wheel? Those wheels in the pic I wouldn't give 10p for btw.
#20
agreed those wheels look awful lol

anyway as said file a complaint and email the seller,if the wheel is the wrong shade and badly refurbed you can provide picture evidence to back up your claim, just take a picture of it next too your original wheels too show the difference.

I hope this gets as exciting as the last ebay tyre dispute on here.

That guy fitted them (possibly damaging them) so the seller dipped out, this is the total opposite.
#23

Make sure you return it via a trackable method,just incase the seller doesn't refund and you have to go through Paypal.

If i were you i'd take pictures of the nail and the tyre/wheel etc BEFORE you send it back just to be on the safe side.
