    Can you help identify these wheels please?

    I've got 4 of these in the shed.

    I've no idea what they are, or if they're worth selling on or refurbing.

    These were on my 2000 A4 1.9TDi when i bought her. Tyre size is 225/45x17.

    I'd appreciate any help in identifying these if you can!

    Many thanks!

    NOthing apart from the offset inside (as far as I can recall). No manufacturers mark or anything! I'll have a closer look after work to see if there's any identifying marks.

    They're likely to be cheapo chinese/ebay things then.

    All of the well known manufacturers will stamp their rims with their name and model/casting codes.

    They are Mk5 Golf GTi rims... 'Santa Monica's' - though they don't appear to be genuine OEM rims at all.

    Many thanks Geeman. That's cleared that one up.

    They certainly don't have any VAG or well known wheel maker markings on them, so I'm pretty sure that they're aftermarket copies.

    I may just bite the bullet and refurb them myself, or sell them on. What do your reckon they would they be worth in 'average' condition with tyres with about 2mm legal tread left?

    Many thanks again!

    I think you'd be lucky to see a couple of hundred quid for them with tyres... as they're copies. Unless you're keeping them for yourself, I wouldn't worry about re-furbing them as they're not too bad and I'd just off-load them as they are.
