    Default Best price for VXR alloy???

    As title, after the disaster of having a puncture on my holidays I just can't be assed with that kind of hassle again so I'm pricing up.....(spot the copy & paste)
    Vauhall VXR 19" Alloy in Anthracite Part 13271698


    But I'm getting huge differences in price from £250 ish to £350 + P&P!

    Any one know where I can get a new one for a none space cadet price??

    Many thanks in advance,

    Jimbo.

    Jimbo... why do you need a VXR alloy for a spare?

    Cant you just get something cheaper to 'get you home'

    It's a bit sad I know but firstly I've got one scuffed alloy I was going to replace anyway and now I've got three conti sport contact 2's and one conti sport contact 3 (the newly replaced one) which is slightly different pattern. That annoys me

    So as I don't like having two different tyres on an axle and I've one scuffed alloy I thought get a new alloy and a new conti 3 bingo two birds with one stone kind a thing..

    ...and yes I know it's sad but I like my car too much and want it right..

    Well, to make you feel better, I recently replaced all four tyres on the VXR... and was happy to wait for the tyre fitter to order 4 x Goodyear tyres from Goodyear direct just so they all came from the same batch..

    now thats detail...

    I have to say I'm considering the tyre gauges you've fitted now to try and catch this kind of thing a bit earlier....
