    Default Is it worth while..??

    Just got 4 replacement 16" SXi wheels under warranty from Vx due to corrosion. Now theres every chance these wheels will be fine in the long term and I may never see the problem again, but......

    .....I've seen new 16" Irmscher Signas about at £280. Would the Signas be a better long term proposition quality wise? Is there even a market for 16" SXi wheels (rims only)...and if so, what would be a fair price for them bearing in mind they are new?

    I think 18's etc look the dogs danglies but the cost of new tyres etc is prohibitive to me at the mo.

    Cheers

    I'd kick up **** with vauxhall, say you are not happy and want a set of 17's as an upgrade for the trouble they have caused you

    You can pick up some cheap 17`s with 225/45`s on, they aren`t expensive tyres as they are a common size. Look much nicer than 16`s as well .

    I liked these ..

    If you can stretch to 17's then they'll make a noticeable visual difference, with hardly a discernible difference in the ride.

    As for a market for 16" wheels, not sure. Are we talking steel wheels here? (guessing we are due to the corrosion thing).

    Edit: In the time it took me to do my reply, two replies in before me (other admin as well)!! See how helpful we are!!

    As Graeme said, maybe worth kicking up a fuss with Vx and trying to get 17's off them.

    Mine has the 18' Signa's as well, tyres are reasonably priced and can be bought for little more than the cost of a 16', personally I would try to get the 18's off VX if you have the chance.

    They're alloys Duncan...

    Common or garden Vx alloys...just wondering what they might be worth in the marketplace is all.

    As for getting 17's or 18's outta Vx, well I've gone and agreed to the replacement 16's...but, we'll see how long it takes them to get them in...might be worth a showroom tantrum.

    Yep, as above - if you haven't actually got them in your hands yet, give them a bell and 'have a chat' about them upgrading to 17's as a 'goodwill gesture' for all the inconvenience.
