    Default 2nd hand alloys

    just picked up a set of orginal 19" gloss black vxr alloys with tyres they have been on the car less than a year from new with plenty of tread and are mint
    my question is should i get them re balanced before fitting or do i worry about that on the next tyres change?

    Cross-wires here I think...the OP is referring to balancing the wheels, Mark you're referring to wheel alignment. I suggest trying them on the car as is, and balancing them only if you feel a vibration at speed.

    You will know when you drive with them on whether any of them need balancing.
