Found 3rd Apr 2014
I've been looking to get my current alloy wheels refurbished when i stumbled on a set of new alloys for the price of 2 refurbished wheels. Direct from Amazon and delivered free (Super Saver or Prime Members).

Cheapest alloys around?

Search "Gulf GT" on Amazon for the full range, please note not all sizes are this cheap.

Tyres fitting is half the problem, you need to know how many nuts yours use (as if you buy one that takes 5 and your car uses 4), the pattern of those nuts as they vary depending on the car. So we will need a bit more information about your car to tell you what to buy. As if you buy the wrong alloys then the wheels still wont fit even if the tyres do.

At this price i'd guess that the alloy won't be that strong and would buckle soon after hitting our potholed roads. Not worth the hassle.

Do a Google search for your models PCD.

Using that logic you'd think a £2000 set of BMW 19" wheels would be indestructible.

Yeah, obviously Amazon are world famous for selling cheap tat that falls apart as soon as you try to use it... [/sarcasm]

For more cheap alloys have a look at this guys stock
ebay.co.uk/sch…=15

Also Ebay has some Gulf alloys about 20% more expensive if Amazon sell out.

At this price they'd make a good alternative to steel rims for winter wheels or track days. Just remember to let your insurance know before you change them over.

My tyre size for Toyota yaris is 185/60/15. Would this be the right size for it? Please advise.

Would these fit a astra 59 plate ?
I currently have 15 inch steel rims on them?
Thanks

The same wheels are also available on ebay for £28 so they seem to be cheap elsewhere too

Anybody know what ones is need for my xsara picasso?

My car is 2005 Mercedes 200 CDI (w203 model) wheels are 5 nut,tyres on car are 225/45 R17 on front and 245/40 R17 on rear.

The size thing is a bit confusing.

What Alloys will fit a Fiat Punto MK2 currently in steel wheels, 4 nuts, 165/65/R14 tyres?

Thanks

Also need alloys for a Toyota Previa 5 nut currently on 235/45/r17 tyres.

The PCD is 4x108 15" wheels for your car.

Only showing 4 in stock for all the ones i looked at (1 set) which is fine if ur just upgrading and keeping the same sizes, if your increasing ur size youll need a spare also.

Why would you need a spare the same size?

All you do is fit a lower profile tyre to the wheels so the tyre circumference remains the same.

If you get a flat, put on your current spare wheel.

Also the offset is ET 15-20 unless they want to mess around with spacers.

Why you would want to put these on a Merc is beyond me.

So where is everyone buying new tyres (hotukdeal price tyres)?

Well the only thing letting my immaculate Merc down was the scuffed alloys,I didn't buy the Gulf ones but bought these instead,all 4 for £83 delivered,they've now gone up to £93 a corner. amazon.co.uk/gp/…OLE

A quick flick through would suggest that's just one of the celebrity CV boxes she has ticks in.

The comments on price and longevity are, well, priceless. Will a Numpty football shirt costing £90 last for ever, or do Numpty just realise how stupid their customers are? How much do you think it costs to make an alloy wheel? Mine were replaced by Mazda under warranty at less than three years old due to heavy surface corrosion. At the price, they should have been gold plated.
And to those with scuffed alloys, learn how to drive/park, and check your tyres frequently. If you're scuffing/kerbing your alloys, you're almost certainly damaging your tyre sidewalls at the same time. I'm amazed at how many cars I see parked with tyres nipped on/against kerbs.

They look better. You could get some covers/stickers off Ebay with the Mercedes logo to cover up the RR.

Are you running RFT on them still?

May get a set for mine for winter tyres to save having to pay to get tyres swapped round.
As polished rims, these are more expensive to refurb' more than to buy new, o as stated above, look after your wheels and tyres

I currently run my winter tyres on a different set of alloys, makes it easier and cheaper long term. Also I drop an inch in the winter as the tyres are half the price. I use 225/45/17 for the summer and 205/55/16 for the winter.
