    Default 888 wheels

    iv got a friend who has come across 3 x 888 18" wheels and he has asked how me how much he should pay for them

    anybody know what they cost new and what he should be paying for them second-hand

    I paid £60 each for mine from 888, but they were 'second hand'

    I think 888 charge around £750 for a new set of four

    But, I take it that they are genuine 888 wheels and not the aftermarket 'Team Dynamics' wheels... as there is a difference, even though they are from the same company

    888 wheels are more expensive than the Team Dynamics 'shop' ones

    Vehicle : Fiat

    Trim : Panda 100HP

    Engine : 1.4

    Year : 08

    Whats the difference then?,i know the centre bore doesn't use a spigot ring and the rim is a plain casting, but they use the same centre cap,so do 888 pay for a special mix of alloy or for a ultra fine balancing because Thorney seem happy with the ordinary Team Dynamics wheels, it's the same situation as the strut brace,one company was charging 150 quid but we all know the exactly the same item is available for 120 quid from other sources.

    as some think Team Dynamics pro 1.2 are the same wheel but there not ,,,the bore is the right size 65.1mm and the et is right too, this means no spacer for the wheel to fit the car
