    depends on a lot. if you take just the wheels to the place they'll charge a lot less then is you took the car down there. as then they'd have to remove the wheels and take the tyres off.


    its something i need to do to my A4 in the summer too

    It may also depend on how "complicated" the alloys are

    I was quoted Ł35 each for a set of S3 alloys

    so generally, an S3 alloy is likely to be less than an RS4? the noes im' looking at are without tyres, and obviously not fitted to a car

    When i go mine done the way the guy explained it was that due to a S3's fairly simple 6 spoke design, they could do them faster than (for example) a RS4 design so it cost less.

    As said above, if you can deliver the alloys to them, that should save you some cash as well.

    hope it helps
