    Default VXR Wheels one at a time?

    Heya Everyone,

    Quick question for you all. i look on ebay alot and there allways seems to be single VXR 19's for about £100-£150 each. so thinking about it you could get a full set for as little as £400. just asking is there any problems that could arise from having wheels from 4 differnt sets?

    I'd be interested to know the answer to this too as I can never afford a full set in one go!

    There is nothing really wrong with this as Dayboy has done it (so i believe)

    However, you could come across problems if they have been refurbed, not very well and may have a slightly different colour match but apart from that you'll be ok

    I ended up with a set of 5 later spec VXR rims after buying them one at a time never paid no more than £100 a rim either. Think the full set of 5 cost me £450 at the most and I sold the worst one of the 5 to get some cash back towards tyres. HTH.

    there are 2 types of vxr wheel, the early ones are all silver, but the newer ones have a diamond cut finish on the face of the spokes which look like a crome effect, HTH
