    Default Do these wheels need a refurb

    I've just sold my 9 month old Sxi alloy wheels on e-bay. In my ad I stated that 3 wheels were mint (no marks at all) but one alloy had a scratch and a few marks that could easily be put right.

    The guy got them for a bargain price complete with good tyres.

    He's now trying to say that one wheel is so bad it needs a refurb. The following pics were taken by him, really close up.

    What do you think? Is it really worth refurbing this wheel considering the rest of the wheel is in A1 condition and hasn't even sniffed at a curb.

    He's trying to get me to refund the cost of the refurb or he'll lodge a claim with Paypal and leave negative feedback. What do I do??

    I would say you sold them as described and tell him to jog on. He's trying to get something for nothing. Either that or refund him after he has returned the wheels. I'm sure someone on here lives local to him and we could probably sort something out????
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Tell him to go and SWIVEL!!!

    He's just trying it on m8. It has a few marks that you described in the listing. If he leaves a negative then report him to E-bay to get the feedback withdrawn.

    Cheers guys. I knew they weren't that bad but wasn't sure what a neutral party would make of them.

    Either that or refund him after he has returned the wheels.
    Thing is he expects me to pay for the wheels to be returned to me.

    btw m8 gonna be cheeky selling my wheels how much did you get for them on ebay?Today 21:57
    Sold for £135 with 5-6mm on all tyres.

    Cheeky ******. If I'd bought them with the description you gave I'd be more than happy.

    As said mate, where does he live. I'm sure someone in his area could pick them up for you so no return costs.
