    Default Are they so cheap for a reason?

    I've just bought a set of 18" flakes (in need of a refurb) for the bargain price of.......




























    125 quid! Should I be worried?

    The guy said they were on his motor while his others were being re-furbed and the 18s aren't as bad for cracking so fingers crossed

    I have checked and checked and it is definatly for 4 lol. I can get a refurb of the faces for 25 quid a wheel so as long as the insides are ok, should be a bargain.

    Will probably need new tyres too but as said still a bargain

    The 18's seem to be going for a fortune just now, the prices are starting to catch up with 19's
