    Default 18" Alloys with Tyres

    I've just bought a set of 17" GSi alloys for GSi (it's never had any while in my ownership!) and wondering if I would be able to sell my current 18" alloys or whether to run on them until the tyres wear out?

    One of the wheels is slightly buckled; It has been transfered to the back of the car and this removes any vibration but it wouldn't be any good as a front wheel.

    The tyres have done approx 10,000 miles and have quite a bit of tread left.

    There is some slight kerbing on at least 2 of the wheels just round the edge (some can be seen on the front wheel below).

    Can anyone tell me if they think these would sell? or Would anyone be interested?

    If so, what are they worth?

    Cheers

    I was looking for an idea on price. Obviously there are several marks on the wheels as shown above and the one is buckled. It has been buckled for several months but I am driving on it daily without a problem but it is no good as a front wheel as it causes the steering to vibrate.

    I'm aware of this however the tyres are not as good and one is damaged on those wheels.

    No problem mate just givimg you an idea he doesn't have a buckled alloy and the damage to the rims isn't as bad as yours, its a trade off new rubber on his rims and no need for a major refurb just some minor cosmetics.

    Don't get me wrong mate just trying to put into perspective what you are selling refurbs are approx £50 a wheel and if the wheel can be made true thats another £50 and thats what folks look at with second hand wheels and the genuine Vx ones fetch the best prices.
