    Default 19" VXR Diamond Cut/Anthracite Wheel With Cracked Rim

    I recently bought a set of four of these wheels from Mark The Cabby (his original thread is still here) but when I got them home I noticed one had a crack in the rim.

    I ummed and ahhed about getting it welded up, but to be completely honest, I decided that as I carry my kids around I didn't want to risk driving around on a cracked wheel.

    Speaking to Mark about it and he kindly helped me source another one to complete my set, so I still have this one spare.

    Now, I'm being completely honest about this from the start, if you buy this wheel you are buying a wheel with a CRACK in the rim, I was quoted about £50 to weld this up and make it roadworthy again, but chose not to risk it. If you buy this wheel, you are doing so at your own risk and I take no responsibility for any repair you may have done to it.

    Physically other than the crack, the wheel is in superb condition and appears to be straight and true (Mark had it on his car for a while before selling them to me), there are a couple of small marks/scratches in the paint and I've shown these in the pictures as clearly as I can with the restrictions of the forums upload system for pics, I've also taken very close up pictures of both sides of the crack. Any questions or if you want better pics then let me know.

    I paid £500 for the set of four, but bearing in mind you'd need to get this one repaired if you chose to buy it, I'll let this one go for £85.

    Just to be absolutely clear here though, it has a crack in the rim, you buy at your own risk.
