    Default Advice required on some new wheels please

    I was looking at a second hand set but considering I have bought 4 new Avon tyres in the past 6 mths thought I may as well buy some new ones

    The missus likes these
    http://www.alloywheels.com/product.a...02>&strSize=18"

    But I prefer these
    http://www.wheelbasealloys.com/18_In...y_Wheels__1130

    Or these
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/4-brand-new-18...item4aa6402964

    Anyone used the ebay guy before?

    Looking between 300-400 quid for a set anyone got any ideas?

    I like your missus choice. I dont like the 18" vxr alloys, i think its 19s or not at all. Between the two vxrs i prefer the first link

    The wheelbase vxr reps are the ones to go for IMHO , they look great, and as for 19' check out the prices. 18' is the best compromise.

    Another vote for the dezent wheels from me. The vxr reps look both common and terrible in 18"
