    Default Alloy wheels, how much do they weigh?

    I'm pricing up some alloy wheels, wondering how much they weigh each corner, might be cheaper getting a courier service than driving down myself! Looking at the 17" pre facfe SRI alloys!

    Thanks!

    Got a PM off a guy from this site, he's selling some for £350, and that's in Reading, so about 180 odd miles from my end (Warrington). My car (petrol) does about 33 MPG last time i worked (motorway stretch & few A roads) it out, but it'll no doubt rise driving down a motorway at 70! I normally get 40 miles out of a tenner (Urban driving)

    I'm still undecided! But I would have done that anyway, like a kid with with a new toy I'd probably see a decrease in MPG driving back with 4 steelies in the boot aswell, I reckon it'll be a good idea getting a courier!

    i bought my snowflakes from a chap opn ebay and the curiour only cost me 35 quid irrc... the majority dont go by weight the go by the alloy size as so many alloys differ in eight it would be some hassle to work out..check ebay for curior services!

    Vehicle : Vectra C Hatch

    Trim : Exclusive Plus Pack

    Engine : 1.9 CDTi Z19DTH

    Year : 57

    Mileage : 100k+

    I used United Parcels next day for a single wheel - very good service. http://stores.shop.ebay.co.uk/UNITED-PARCELS

    Here's one for £28 for a set of 4: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...m=280410789697

    Fuel alone would cost more than that, real cost would be considerably more.
