    Eek 18" multispokes. Just how much do people want them...

    I ask this question, as I recently started looking at a new set of alloys from eBay as an alternative to my current GSi alloys and tyres which will need replacing before the end of the year. As my 17" Vredesteins are 100 squid a corner, I reckoned any set I could find for up to 600 would be a good deal, as I could sell the old wheels on singley as spares...

    Having a look around eBay, I found some 18" multispokes, which several people have on here, and I think are one of the best looking wheels for the Signum. Not my favourite on the Vectra, but it would be good to have them for my future Signum...

    I'm also only a fan of OEM alloys - no aftermarket stuff for me as I just don't think they suit the cars in any way...

    These were the alloys I found, which although the postage is a bit steep, i thought would be a great buy as they have decent tyres and are all in good condition. Still not finished, but have gone above what I was looking to pay for them, and expect them to go quite a bit higher judging by the bidding so far...

    I also found these, and after doing some figures and getting some quotes for 18" Vredestein tyres, decided that they would be good to hang on to, keep an eye out for some more over the next few months, and do it that way. They were at 51 squid with an hour to go, and as I had to go out I just put in the largest bid I figured I could afford as the tyres would have to be paid for seperately in the future...

    I put in 75, I was outbid immedietely. I put in 80 to see what would happen, and again I was outbid. Curiosity got the better of me, and went up to 85. Still outbid. Final price:90 squid. Still outbid...

    Sod this, I thought - someone obviously wants these a lot more than me...

    Logged on today to see just how much they went for, and nearly fell off my seat...

    £250

    I mean, this is for 2 of the alloys, no tyres. That would mean you'd pay 500 quid for the alloys, and at least another 400 if not more for the tyres. That's mint condition Snowflake and VXR rim territory, not everyday 18" multispokes...

    I do still want some, but I'm not paying that sort of money...

    Exactly, they are not as common as the flakes, and as such demand a price quite close to flakes and that little bit extra compared with other 18" alloys.

    Awesome looking wheels though

    Also found on the Astra Twintop, and the Signum Exclusiv (as standard...) but I agree, possibly not as common as the snowflakes since they were put on the SRi XP models...

    But yes, I'll be keeping an eye out....
