    HP Racing evo's

    Hi , does anyone know where I can get hold of some 18 inch hp racing evo alloy wheels for my beloved b5? found some on a German site, but does anyone know of any stockists in the uk, just had it lowered by 40mm and love the split rim look?
    Thanx

    yeh they will ship but at the cost of $200 per wheel just for shipping its not worth it.

    thanx, for your replies guys, shipping them in would work out rather expensive, it seems the only other option I have would be to find a simular style by a different manufacturer?

    Parotech have a wheel called the dragon, also Stamford have the SSW Mesh Very simular but they seem to have a smaller lip, and have'nt quite got that extra something the Evo's have?

    I've managed to track down the HP Racing website and made an enquiry about any UK Stockists they may have, if any, heres hoping...lol

    if anyone has any further info, please reply? as I'd love to get hold of some and not have to settle for second best?

    will keep you posted as to how I get on.... thanx in advance...Proteus 2000

    hi guys, just an update on my progress...lol

    called up swt asked them for a quote on the Hart c4's and also the Rondell 58's, that was last week? still waiting for a reply?

    also been in touch with HP racing via email, they put me in touch with this company

    http://www.exclusiveparts.com

    They've quoted me approx 800 for 5 wheels only including shipping,
    5 to 6 days delivery via UPS courier

    Figured if I'm gonna ship them in, I'd best get 5 wheels, as friend of mine shipped some wheels over from the states once, he only got four, ended up cracking a rim and couldnt get another for either love nor money! best to get a spare just in case...lol

    also been quoted 360 for 4 x firestone 225/40/18 tyres balanced & fitted here in the UK, so thats an overall cost of 1160.00 ready to fit on my car....

    What do you reckon guys? should I go for it? I've been quoted 1000 for simular wheels here in the UK without a spare!

    love to know you thoughts?

    thanx for your help....Proteus 2000
