    Unidentified wheels

    Right I'm lookin for a bit of info and a bit of advice, a friend of a friend has these 17" vauxhall alloys for sale, there are 4, 1 has a brand new tyre, they are all badly kerbed, for starters, does anyone know what car they would have been off initially? in their current condition how much do you think they are worth? would it cost alot to get them restored?
    the pics below show 3 of the wheels, they are all in the same general condition and I have also posted pictures of the individual tyres









    cheers

    P.s astraman, I do still want your wheels, I can get these really cheap and they would tie me over, that is all

    Don't look like standard veccy wheels, IIRC they are 16's and don't have the centre cover (SRi ones). Look rebadged aftermarket to me.

    Plus your looking at a big refurb in addition to buying them - which is approx £150-£200, in addition to what you're paying for the rims. And a full set of tyres in the near future.

    My advice - don't buy unless they're really really cheap. Save your cash & look elsewhere
