    Who sold their standard alloys ?

    Thinking of selling the standard wheels from my Cabby, they're the 16" 5 spokes (new design ones) and are obviously brand new and only used to get the car home.

    Has anyone else sold their standard wheels? And did you get enough to make it worth selling them ?

    Not enough in my case to be worth selling them. I got 180 from my first astra withoout tyres and 380 from this astra wih 15 mile old tyres.
    But I wished I had kept them for the winter ect and when the wheels need refurbing.
    I now have to buy me another set just to use in the above circumstances

    i dont think they are too desirable as most people that would want 16s for their car would be after 4 studs ( maybe im wrong tho )

    Sold my standards fro £240 with just about ok rubber.

    I figured that when I eventually sell the car, the alloys will go with it and I'll just start again.

    Not when you consider how much you'll lose when you need to leave big wheels on when you sell it.

    If they were turbo 17's you'd get a good price for em so worth it sometimes.

    16's you wont get much for em so probably worth keeping till you sell the car unless you want them out the way
