    Turbo wheels from breaker, was I shafted?

    Paid £190 all inc. for a pair. Seemed like a good deal at the time as they seem quite hard to find second hand.

    Chap said they were in good nick and not kerbed, one even had an Eagle F1, but he said it might not be any good, the tyre was gashed
    They've got a couple of small kerb marks as well :roll:
    Just really wanted one for a proper spare

    Did I get shafted or is that not such a bad deal? How much are they from a main dealer?

    I paid a ton for 4 17" Coupe wheels (without tyres). But I was pretty chuffed about it...

    100 quid for 4 :shock: wish I knew where you could get deals like that, phoned a few breakers over the past couple of weeks, none that cheap.

    3 turbo wheels sold on ebay the other day for over £270 + p+p

    (I think - memory like a sieve)... The guy actually rang me. Was a private sale and he wanted the wheels just for the tyres - they had some mint Goodyears or something that he basically saved a shedload on rather than buying new. Just wanted to get shot of the wheels... And I think I'd posted a message somewhere saying I wanted some...

    Not looking quite so bad just phoned the main dealer, £357 for a pair inc vat, TBH thought they would be even more than that as Irmscher ones are big money
